Wynonna - Flies On The Butter (You Can't Go Home Again)

   ----(capo 1st fret)----


Cadd9 = x32033

Intro - G - Em - C - D - G


(verse 1)
         G                   Em
Old tin roof, leaves in the gutter,
                 C                        D          
A hole in the screen door as big as your fist,
                    G
And flies on the butter,


(verse 2)
              G
Mamaw baking sugar cookies,
                   Em
We were watching cartoons,
                              C          
I Heard her holler from the kitchen,
                    D                       G  -  D
Which one of you yougins wants to lick the spoon,



(verse 3)
                           G
Yellow jackets on the watermelon,
                   Em
Honeysuckle in the air,
                        C
Daddy turning on the sprinkler,
                   D                   G  -  D
Us kids running through it in our underwear,



(verse 4)
                         G
Old dog napping on the front porch,
       Em
His ear just a-twitching,
                  C
Fell asleep on grandaddy's lap,
         D                        G
To the sound of his pocket watch ticking,


(chorus)

Cadd9    D         G
 Whoa Oh,  Whoa oh,
          Cadd9              D             G - D
It doesn't seem like it was all that long ago,
Cadd9    D         G
 Whoa Oh,  Whoa oh,
Em        Cadd9                         D
  You can dream about it every now and then,
        D               G - Em - C
But you can't go home again,



(verse 5)
                       G
Me and my best friend Jenny,
                  Em
Set up a backyard camp,
                           C
Stole one of mama's mason jars,
                    D                       G - D
Poked holes in the lid and made a fire fly lamp,


(verse 6)
                G                         Em
Me and Billy Monroe sneaking down by the river,
                      C                    D
And I'm still haunted by the taste of the kiss,
                   G
I was too scared to give him,


(chorus)

Cadd9    D         G
 Whoa Oh,  Whoa oh,
          Cadd9              D             G
It doesn't seem like it was all that long ago,
Cadd9    D         G
 Whoa Oh,  Whoa oh,
Em        Cadd9                         D
  You can dream about it every now and then,
        D               Cadd9
But you can't go home again,


(lead chords - Cadd9 - D - Cadd9 - D)


(verse 7)
                     G
There's a black-top road,
                    Em
A faded yellow centerline,
                C
It can take you back to the place,
        D                      G - D
But it can't take you back in time,


(chorus)

Cadd9    D         G
 Whoa Oh,  Whoa oh,
          Cadd9              D             G
It doesn't seem like it was all that long ago,
Cadd9    D         Bm 
 Whoa Oh,  Whoa oh,
Em        Cadd9                         D
  You can dream about it every now and then,
        D               G
But you can't go home again,


(ending verse )
         G                    Em
Old tin roof, leaves in the gutter,
                C                      D
A hole in the screen door big as your fist,
                      C - G
And flies on the butter,
