Jersey On The Wall chords - Townes Tenille

Townes Tenille Lyrics


            [Intro]
C Am F G
 
[Verse]
          C
There’s a jersey on the wall
                 Am
In a high school gym in my home town
       F
In the corner by the scoreboard
          G
Where the bleacher seats fold down
       C
twenty seven took the tigers
       Am
to the finals that year
    F                           G
but that’s not why it’s hanging there
 
[Chorus]
     C
If I ever get to heaven
                 Am
You know I got a long list of questions
     F
like how do you make a snowflake G are you angry when the Earth quakes C how does the sky change in a minute Am how do you keep this big rock spinning Am G F Why can‘t you stop a car from crashing F G C forgive me I’m just asking [Verse] C I bet somewhere there‘s a yearbook Am in a box under a bed F with a senior picture missing G in loving memory instead C and somewhere there’s a mother Am who stopped going to church F cause your plan quit making sense G Down here on Earth [Chorus] C If I ever get to heaven Am you know I got a long list of questions F Like how do you make a snowflake G are you angry when the Earth quakes C how does the sky change in a minute Am how do you keep this big rock spinning Am G F Why couldn’t you stop that car from crashing F G Am forgive me I’m just asking [Bridge] F oh I’m just saying C G You don’t have to answer now F oh but someday [Chorus] C if I ever get to heaven Am I got a long list of questions F Like how do you make a snowflake G are you angry when the Earth quakes C how does the sky change in a minute Am how do you keep this big rock spinning Am if you’ve got your hands G F on everything that happens Am G F Then why couldn’t you stop that car from crashing F G C forgive me I’m just asking [Outro] Am F G C oh I’m just asking
