My Old Kentucky Home

	  Intro: D     D/F#     

Verse: 1 
D 
Turpentine and dandelion wine, 
                D/F#            G 
I've turned the corner, an' I'm doin' fine. 
G                            D 
Shootin' at the birds on the telephone line; 
A                         D 
Pickin' 'em off with this gun o' mine. 
G                            D 
Got a fire in my belly and a fire in my head, 
A                                D 
Going higher and higher 'til I'm dead. 

Verse: 2 
D 
Sister Sue is short and stout, 
                D/F#         G 
She didn't grow up, she grew out. 
G                                 D 
Momma says she's plain, but she's just being kind. 
A                                  D 
Papa thinks she's pretty, but he's almost blind. 
G                        D 
Don't let her out much except at night. 
A                               D 
But I don't care 'cause I'm all right.
