Sammy Kershaw Lyrics





"Vidalia" performed by Sammy Kershaw
Written by Tim Nichols
From the album "Politics Religion and Her"
Transcribed by Brian Ophoff

Note: Once you get the strum pattern down, try squeezing and releasing the
chords or throwing in a suspended here and there.  The cd sounds like its in
A, but I can sing it better in G by substituting  A,D,E with G,C,D.

Intro:  A(4counts) D(3counts) A(1count)  2 times
A
Aint nothin so precious as a first born child
               D
A
What to call their little angel, they wondered for a while
A
Your dear mama Violet and your proud daddy Dale
   D
I know when they named ya they surely meant well, but

Chorus:
A           E
Vidalia, Vidalia
A                                  D      A          E
Girl won't you tell me why, sweet Vidalia
          D                                A
You always gotta make me cry.

Short instrumental break (1 x intro)

A
I never paid no attention to a girl before
             D
A
Till the day I saw you standin in the Sunday school door
A
One boy sort of snickered when the roll was read
               D
Till you laid the word of God upside of his head

Chorus:
A           E
Vidalia, Vidalia
A                                 D      A            E
Girl wont you tell me why, sweet Vidalia
          D                                    E...
You always gotta make me... cry

Bridge:
E
When I try to get too close
D
Seems like we've always been almost
A                                                         E
Just one step or two away from true love

Instrumental break: repeat intro

A
Well I love the way you walk, I love the way you kiss
   D                                                        A
I love to get away with you alone like this
A
If I could just mention just one little thing
D
Vidalia would you stop livin up to your name

Chorus:
A           E
Vidalia, Vidalia
A                                 D      A            E
Girl wont you tell me why, sweet Vidalia
          D                                A
You always gotta make me cry.
 E
Vidalia
A                                 D      A            E
Girl wont you tell me why, sweet Vidalia
        D                                A
You always gotta make me cry.
        D                                A
You always gotta make me cry
         D                                A
You always gotta make me cry
