     DALLAS     Alan Jackson

         A                       D
Dallas packed her suitcase and drove off in the brand new car
         A
that I bought her
A                                 D
She made leaving me look easy  I wish she'd made it look
           A
a little harder
E                         D
I took her out of Texas when she was just a girl
E                                           D           E
But old Tennesee and me couldn't take the Texas out of her

CHORUS:
     A                          E
Oh, How I wish Dallas was in Tennesee
                  D              E                  D
If I could move Texas east then she'd be here with me
           A                                  E
and then nothing else would come between the two of us
     D         E        A
If Dallas was in Tenne-see

        A                     D                       A
By now she's leaving Memphis and everything we had behind her
A                                  D                      A
Lord, I know the gold band on her hand will serve as a reminder
     E                           D
And true love is a treasure and very seldom found
E                        D                      E
You can't stay together when there's no common ground.

go to chorus
       D          E        A
Oh if Dallas was in Tenne-see

ENDING:
          A                      D  n.c.
Dallas packed her suitcase and drove off in the brand new car
