Floyd County

	  		
Intro: D   G   D   G   D   A   D   A 

       D                G          D      G 
It's a sad day in Floyd County Mr. Jones, 
                  D 
Yeah the grief is strong, 
A                  D     A 
 For the man that's gone. 
           D               G             D      G 
And at the grave his woman cries and she moans, 
             D                A           D 
'Cause its a sad day in Floyd County, Mr. Jones. 

        C           G              D 
The six children he raised are all weepin', 
         C         G          D 
For this soft-spoken mountain man. 
     C                G        D                     G 
That fed 'em with the money he earned in those black mines, 
        D             A              D 
And the food he could raise with his hands. 
                         
                               G          D      G 
'Cause it's a sad day in Floyd County Mr. Jones, 
                  D 
Yeah the grief is strong, 
A                  D     A 
 For the man that's gone. 
           D               G             D      G 
And at the grave his woman cries and she moans, 
             D                A           D 
'Cause its a sad day in Floyd County, Mr. Jones. 

           C          G              D 
Though the world knew nothing of his wisdom, 
       C          G                D 
Or the honest and simple things he did. 
             C     G              D        G 
There's some folks cryin' on this hillside today, 
     D              A             D 
That know about the humble way he lived. 

                               G          D      G 
'Cause it's a sad day in Floyd County Mr. Jones, 
                  D 
Yeah the grief is strong, 
A                  D     A 
 For the man that's gone. 
           D               G             D      G 
And at the grave his woman cries and she moans, 
             D                A           D 
'Cause its a sad day in Floyd County, Mr. Jones.

D   G   D   G   D   A   D 

         C            G             D 
Now this house in the holler stands empty, 
           C              G         D 
Though his presence in my memory is plain. 
             C                 G       D               G  
You know I'd swear that I just saw him walking up that hill, 
             D           G            D 
I guess this place won't never be the same. 

                               G          D      G 
'Cause it's a sad day in Floyd County Mr. Jones, 
                  D 
Yeah the grief is strong, 
A                  D     A 
 For the man that's gone. 
           D               G             D      G 
And at the grave his woman cries and she moans, 
             D                A           D 
'Cause its a sad day in Floyd County, Mr. Jones.
