George Jones – “The King Is Gone (Yabba Dabba Do)”

G
Last night I broke the seal on a Jim Beam
C D C D
decanter that looked like Elvis
C D
I soaked the label off, a Flintstone jelly bean
G
jar
G
And I pulled us up a place of that one little
C D C D
table that she left us C D G
And pulled me up a big of piece of floor

C D
Then I pulled the head of Elvis
C D
Filled Fred up to his pelvis
D G D C D G
Yabba dabba do the king is gone and so are you

C D
Around about 10 we all got to talkin
C D
About Graceland, Bedrock and such
C D
The conversation finally turned to women
C D
They both said they didn’t get around too much
C D
Elvis said fine and young and Fred said that
G C
old fashioned girls are fun
C G D C D G
Yabba dabba do the king is gone and so are you

C D
Around about then it finally hit me
C D
You won’t be comin home no more
C D
I guess you finally got around to leavin
C D
Not like all of those other times before
C D G
So I broke Elvis’ nose and poured the last drop
C
from Freds’ toes

C G D C D G
Yabba dabba do the king is gone and so are you

Last night I broke the seal on a Jim Beam
C D C D
decanter that looked like Elvis
