David Allan Coe - Another Pretty Country Song
Capo 1

  D                      A           D
I bought this rhinestone suit in California
      G                  A            D
These boots came all the way from Mexico
     G              A
This Cadillac ain't nothin' son
    D
You ought to see the greyhound
  E                                   A
I bought to take my band from show to show
D              A                 D
Seen my face a thousand times on TV
    G                D     A
And heard me on your local radio
    G              A       D                    Bm
And in your eyes I see the admiration there for me
    G                     A             D
But son there's something that ought to know.

          A                                D
Well I've got to take a drink to keep from shakin'
G                 D              A
Motel rooms ain't nothin’ like a home
G                              D
Money can't make love grow any stronger
E                               A
When you leave your woman home alone
G                                    D
She can't raise the children with no daddy
G                D                 A
She can't love a man that's always gone
           G          
It takes a whole lot more than pride
             D        A      Bm
To keep your feelings locked inside
          D            A              D
While you sing Another Pretty Country Song.

     G                A                 D
I've seen your face a thousand times on TV
     G               A     D
I've heard you on my local radio.

     D                A             D
It's true I took some pills to stay awake son
         A                               D
And this diamond ring I wear is just for show
     G            A            D
I've got a little cabin in the country
E                                       A
When I'm not on the road that's where I go
D              A                D
Try and put my feelings down on paper

G                  D              A
Right or wrong the show has to go on
      G                                D
I can cry deep down inside and keep on smilin'
        D            A              D
While I sing Another Pretty Country Song
    A                                     D       A D
But I've got to take a drink to keep from shakin'.

I find that when playing that E in the
intro and in the verses it sounds good when
you strike the top 3 strings with a
hammer on the G to get the effect that
you hear on The Day. You can do it when
playing alone or have a second guitar do it.
It sounds cool.
Great tab.

Chords are right, but there definitely should not be a capo on the first. Just play the progressions written with no capo.
