Song: She Was
Artist: Mark Chesnutt
Transposed by: Eddie Garcia (
Actual key D#  (capo 1st fret)

    G                        A
She started her new life ten dollars in debt
G                          A
That’s all it took to get started back then
  G                        A
A trip to the courthouse across the state line
G                           A
No one could stop her she’d made up her mind
       G                A
He was eighteen and she wasn’t…


                 D                     F#m
But she said she was and never thought twice
          G                  A
Came back home as my daddy’s wife
She just shook her head
               Bm                         G     A
And her momma said “are you sure he’s the one?”
She was

G                 A
He took a job and farmed on the side
G                         A
He made the ends meet but she kept them tight
G                       A
Changes were coming to their little world
          G                     A
She said “what would you like a boy or a girl?”
              G           A
And he said, “are you?”…


                 D                     F#m
And she said she was and never thought twice
                  G                           A
About taking the next step and building their lives
                D                      Bm               G   A
Soon there were three and she tried to be everything to us
And she was…


G                      A
Those precious moments turned into years

        D             A           G/F#
In what seemed like a blink of an eye
Em                   G
I held her hand as I leaned down to ask her
Em                     A
“Momma are you ready to say good bye?”


             D                   F#m
She said she was but she thought twice
           G                     A
Holding my hand as she let go of life
             D                 Bm                        G   A
Daddy always said a woman like her would be hard to give up
And she was
         G                     A
If there ever was a picture of love
She was
