Brass Buttons

Words and Music by Gram Parsons

G     Am            D               G
Brass buttons green silk and silver shoes

     Am            D                G
Warm evenings pale mornings  bottle blues

        Bm          G             C              A
And the tiny golden pins that she wore up in her hair

      Am            D                G
Brass buttons green silks and silver shoes

Am          D               G
My mind was young untill it grew

Am                       D7        G
My secret thoughts known only by a few

         Bm             G
It was a dream much too real

       C             A
To believe again too soon

Am          D                G
And all the time I think she knew

Am              D               G
Her words still dance inside my head

Am             D              G
Her comb still lies beside my bed

        Bm              G
And the sun comes up without her now

                C          A
It just doesn't know she's gone

Am             D              G
And I remember everything she said

G     Am            D               G
Brass buttons green silk and silver shoes

     Am            D                G
Warm evenings pale mornings  bottle blues

        Bm          G             C              A
And the tiny golden pins that she wore up in her hair

      Am            D                G
