John Deere Green 
by Joe Diffie 
 
The first person to submit this did an excellent job. I just added a couple  
of chords, plus the bridge and key changes. 
 
[G]They were farm kids way down in Dixie 
[C]They met in high school in the [G]sixties 
Everyone knew it was love from the [D7]start 
One [G]July in the midnight hour 
[C]He climbed upon the [G]water tower 
Stood on the rail and [D7]painted a ten foot [C]heart[D] 
 
Chorus 
In [Em]John [D]Deere [C]Green 
[G]On a [D]hot summer [C]night 
He wrote [Em]Billy Bob [D]loves [C]Charlene 
[G]In letters [D]three foot [C]high 
And the [Em]whole town said 
that he [D]should’ve used red 
But it [G]looked good [D]to [C]Charlene 
in [Em]John [D]Deere [G]Green 
 
 
They settled down on eighty acres 
Raising sweet corn, kids and tomatoes 
They went together like a hand and a glove 
On a clear day from their front yard 
He you look and know what to look for 
Off to the east you can still read his words of love 
 
Repeat chorus 
 
Bridge 
Now [G]more than once the town has discovered  
Painting [C]over it aint no use 
There [G]aint no paint in the world that’ll cover it  
The [C]heart keeps showing [D]thru 
 
Chorus (up 1 step) 
In [F#m]John [E]Deere [D]Green 
[A]On a [E]hot summer [D]night 
He wrote [F#m]Billy Bob [E]loves [D]Charlene 
[A]In letters [E]three foot [D]high 
And the [F#m]whole town said 
that he [E]should’ve used red 
But it [A]looked good [E]to [D]Charlene 
in [F#m]John [E]Deere [A]Green 
 
Repeat chorus
