Flowered Dresses Lyrics

A D F#m E

A
She was leaning long legged
D
'neath a bottle cap sign
F#m E
Of a country store with a coke and a smile
A
the coolest place to linger
D
on an Arkansas day
F#m E
when she saw him passing by
A
He said "I'll take you back to Texas"
D
Said "my name is Ray"
F#m E
where the stars are bigger than the Hit Parade
A
And she stopped dreamin' her dream
D
and she started dreamin' his
F#m E
Traded in her childhood
D E A
She wore flowered dresses for him
D E A
Rolled her hair, scrubbed her freckled skin
D E
On the chance that they were goin' out tonight
A E/G# D
Catch a show, maybe grab a bite
D E A
and she looked real nice, She looked real nice
Verse

Sometimes I think about my daddy
and his old spice grin,
Cleaned pressed shirts, and a farmers tan
She never asked him questions
So he never told her lies
but I heard my mama cry some
And I was sitting in the hallway on the night he left
huggin my knees, holding my breath
I never knew why but he was damn sure gone
thought it was maybe my fault

Chorus

'Cause She wore flowered dresses for him
Rolled her hair, scrubbed her freckled skin
On the chance that they were goin' out tonight
Catch a show, maybe grab a bite
And she looked real nice, she looked real nice

And she looked real nice, she looked real nice
