Palmetto Rose

	  		A 
Palmetto rose in the AC vent 
Cross stitched pillow where the head rest went 
D 
Said his cab was his orneriest friend 
A 
Left him jumping like trees in the wind 

A 
Thought he had the red lights memorized 
Glass in the gravel like the stars in the sky 
D 
In that slow motion minute between living and dead 
A 
Looked in my eyes and he told me, he said 

     A                      D        A 
This war that I wage to get up every day 
                             E          A 
It's a fiberglass boat, it's azaleas in May 
         F#m     E            D          A 
It's the women I love and the law that I hate 
                       D      A 
Lord let me die in the Iodine State 
                       E      A 
Lord let me die in the Iodine State 

(During the last part of the Chorus, mimic the vocal melody with something like this:

A Palmetto rose in the sidewalk mud Pearly white stem and a big green bud D Catch him coming out of a King Street store A Bullshit story about the Civil War A You can believe what you want to believe But there ain't no making up a basket weave D Everybody in the tri-county knows A Who makes the best palmetto rose A D A This war that I wage to get up every day E A It's a fiberglass boat, it's azaleas in May F#m E D A It's the women I love and the law that I hate D A Lord let me die in the Iodine State E A Lord let me die in the Iodine State

Violin: F#m E D A D A Out on Sullivan's Island, they're swimming D A On the beach where the big boats rolled in D A With the earliest slaves, women and children E Our first American kin D A Here on King Street we're selling our roses D A Two for a five dollar bill D A And tonight after everything closes E I'll follow my own free will F#m E D A And I've taken my fill F#m E D A I've taken my fill D During the verses, mess around with the honky tonk in A. Honky tonk is about teasing the minor over a major progression. Something like:
