Lyrics and Chords

Intro: / E(VII) - D(V)-A(V)-A E(VII) / / E(VII) - D(V)-A(V)-A A /

When the sun comes up on a sleepy little town
Down around San Antone
And the folks are risin' for another day
Round about their homes
The people of the town are strange
And they're proud of where they came

/ E(VII) - / D(V)-A(V)-A E(VII) / : / C#m B / A(V)-A-A#-B-C C - / 

Well you're talkin' 'bout China Grove 
   Talkin' 'bout China Grove
Whoa oh oh, whoa oh China Grove

/ E(VII) D(V)A(V) / E(VII) D(V)A(V) E(VII) D(V)-A(V)-A E(VII) - / 

Well the preacher and the teacher, Lord, they're a caution
They are the talk of the town
When the gossip gets to flyin' and they ain't lyin'
When the sun goes fallin' down
Well they say that the father's insane
And dear Miss Perkins' a game


... E(VII) G#mB /

   But every day there's a new thing comin'
   The ways of an oriental view
   The sheriff and his buddies with their samurai swords
   You can even hear the music at night
   And though it's a part of the Lone Star state
   The people don't seem to care
   They'll just keep on lookin' to the east

   / C#m - / F#m7 C#m / C#m - / F# F#sus4F# F#sys4F# G#mB /
      / C#m - / F#m7 C#m / A - C-D-E E C-D-E E / 
      ( / E(VII) - D(V)-A(V)-A E(VII) / / as instrumental )
