Miss Ferguson

Capo on 2nd fret
	  		
 Fret 
Intro: G D C D (4X) 

G                       D      C 
In a town where you can sum up every girl with just  
    D 
one sentence 
G       D        C              D 
Give or take the subject or the verb 
G         D           C          D 
She shows up like the devil said penance 
G             D       C        D 
Won't nothin' ever be clear no more 

G D C D (2X) 

G       D                    C           D 
She got hired on down at the Last Chance Diner 
G         D            C         D 
She works all the same shifts as me 
G               D       C              D 
I've never been one for too much conversation 
G         D               C      D 
But now I choose my words so carefully 
G                       D            C 
'Cause the angle of her cheek is the math of  
D 
persuasion 
G                      D                C 
First time you saw the ocean, she's got tucked  
           D 
behind her knee 
G      D                        C 
She is swallowing lightning and she is spittin'  
D 
thunder 
G       D           C       D 
Waftin' California, reekin' Tennessee 
G              D          C           D 
She is waftin' California and reekin' Tennessee 

Pre Chorus: 

C 
Now I wanna tell her how I feel 
D 
But each time that I start 
G                      D 
My tongue wraps like a tether ball 
C                   D 
Six times around my heart and I say 

Chorus: 

G    D    C         D 
Hey, hey, hey, Miss Ferguson 
G              D    C          D 
It's Cory from work callin' to say 
G    D    C         D 
Hey, hey, hey, Miss Ferguson 
G                            D               C 
I was wonderin' what you was doing, a little later  
   D 
on today 
G                           D               C 
Just wonderin' what you was doing, a little later on 
D 
today 

G D C D (2X) 

G                  D                   C 
Now I'm curious to see just where them eight pounds  
     D 
will end up 
G          D                   C             D 
I wanna be around to watch the southern kick in 
G                   D      C          D 
Ain't got no purple heart, no blue ribbon 
G             D           C 
Blow out them candles now I'll show you where I've  
D 
been 
G                       D               C 
Now she comes around at midnight like a Sunday  
     D 
afternoon 
G                    D             C 
With a purpose and a manner like a needle and a  
D 
spoon 
G                             D             C 
A bad thing waitin' 'round to happen like a lake of 
D 
gasoline 
G            D                     C 
The way that woman does me is like nothing, I've  
     D 
ever seen 

Pre Chorus: 

C 
Now I wanna tell her how I feel 
D 
But each time that I start 
G                      D 
My tongue wraps like a tether ball 
C                   D 
Six times around my heart and I say 

Chorus: 

G    D    C         D 
Hey, hey, hey, Miss Ferguson 
G              D    C          D 
It's Cory from work callin' to say 
G    D    C         D 
Hey, hey, hey, Miss Ferguson 
G                            D               C 
I was wonderin' what you was doing, a little later  
   D 
on today 
G                           D               C 
Just wonderin' what you was doing, a little later on 
D 
today 

G D C D (4X) 

G                     D              C 
Don't think I'll ever wake up on the wrong side of 
    D 
her bed 

G              D    C              D 
She brings the sun, she brings the shine 
G                     D                  C 
These days every time I try and start to sing some  
    D 
sad song 
G            D                  C                
I open up my mouth and the only words that I can 
D 
find is just 
G         D   C                  D    G D C D 
Sha-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la-la-la-la 
G         D   C                  D    G D C D 
Sha-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la-la-la-la 

Chorus: 

G    D    C         D 
Hey, hey, hey, Miss Ferguson 
G              D    C          D 
It's Cory from work callin' to say 
G    D    C         D 
Hey, hey, hey, Miss Ferguson 
G                            D               C 
I was wonderin' what you was doing, a little later  
   D 
on today 
G                           D               C 
Just wonderin' what you was doing, a little later on 
D 
today 

G            D                  C           D 
I ain't even thinkin' about the rest of our day 
G                            D               C 
I was wonderin' what you was doing, a little later 
   D 
on today 
G      D    C             D          G 
I said hey, hey, Miss Ferguson, it's me
