Wallen Morgan Lyrics


            [Intro]
 C G F C G C
 
[Verse 1]
G     C                      F
 She asked me where I was from
              G               C
I said "Somewhere you never been to"
         Am                F
Little town outside of Knoxville
        G
Hidden by some dogwood trees
              C                F
She tried talkin' with my accent
          G               C
We held hands and waded into
G         Am
That blue water
              F                  G             C
She left her flip-flops by my Red Wings on the beach
 
 
[Chorus]
           C                               F      C
Yeah but, now I'm dodging potholes in my sunburnt Silverado
F C G Like a heart-broke Desperado, headin' right back to my roots C F C Somethin' 'bout the way she kissed mе tells me she'd lovе Eastern Tennessee F C G C Yeah, but all I brought back with me was some sand in my boots [Verse 2] C F I said "Let's go shoot tequila" G C So we walked back to that beach bar Am F She said "Don't cowboys drink whiskey?" G So we drank bottom shelf C F She said "Damn, that sky looks perfect" G C G Am I said "Girl, you've never seen stars like the ones back home" F G C And she said "Maybe I should, see 'em for myself" [Chorus] C F C Yeah, but now I'm dodging potholes in my sunburnt Silverado F C G Like a heart-broke Desperado, headin' right back to my roots C F C Somethin' 'bout the way she kissed me tells me she'd love Eastern Tennessee F C G Yeah, but all I brought back with me was some sand in my boots [Break] Am C F Am C F [Bridge] C F I said meet me in the mornin' G C And she told me I was crazy G Am F G Yeah, but I still thought that maybe she'd show up [Chorus] C F C Oh, but now I'm dodging potholes in my sunburnt Silverado F C G Like a heart-broke Desperado, headin' right back to my roots C F C Somethin' 'bout the way she kissed me tells me she'd love Eastern Tennessee F C G C G Yeah, but all I brought back with me was some sand in my boots F C G Yeah, but all I brought back with me was some sand in my boots [Outro] C G F C G C How to play "Sand In My Boots" by Morgan Wallen on guitar Intro: - Start with the chord progression C, G, F, C, G, C.
