George Jones The King is Gone (So Are You) Lyrics

Last updated:

(G) Last night I broke the seal on a Jim Beam decanter
That looks like (D) Elvis
I (C) soaked the label (Am) off (D7) a Flintstone Jelly Bean (G) jar
I cleared us off a place on that one little table
that you (D) left us
And (C) pulled me up a (D7) big ole piece of (G) floor

I (C) pulled the head off (Am) Elvis
Filled (C) Fred up to his (Am) pelvis
Yabba Dabba (G) Doo, the (C) King is (G) gone
And (D) so are (G) you

(C) 'Round about 10 we all got to (D7) talking
(C) 'Bout Graceland, Bedrock and (D7) such
(C) The conversation finally turned to (D7) women
(C) But they said they didn't get around too (D7) much
(C) Elvis said, "Find 'em (D7) young"
And Fred said (G) "Old Fashioned girls are (C) fun"
Yabba Dabba (G) Doo, the (C) King is (G) gone
And (D) so are (G) you

(C) Later on it finally (D7) hit me
(C) That you wouldn't be 'a comin' home no (D7) more
(C) 'Cause this time I know you won't (D7) forgive me
(C) Like all of them other times (D7) before
(C) Then I broke Elvis' (D7) nose
Pouring the (G) last drop from his (C) toes
Yabba Dabba (G) Doo, the (C) King is (G) gone
And (D) so are (G) you
(C) Yabba Dabba (G) Doo, the(C) King is (G) gone
And (D) so are (G) you

TAG:

(G) Last night I broke the seal on a Jim Beam decanter
That looks like (D) Elvis
I (C) soaked the label (Am) off (D7) a Flintstone Jelly Bean (G) jar....(fade)
