She Couldn't Change Me MONTGOMERY GENTRY This is a correction of my former submission. (The format was scattered because I used the tab key) Also note that you can drop this into the key of "E" without any problem, here is the transposition: F=E ; Bb=A ; C=B ; Dm=C#m NOTE: The reason it is originally done in "F" is to get a swooping hammer-on effect* primarily going into the chorus. Also, I used (C) and (rif) in the chorus to annotate a predominate Bass part. Intro: F Bb F Bb... F Bb F Bb Sometimes I think what turned her on was my old worn out boots; F Bb F Bb She wanted her a real cowboy, it was a phase she was goin' through. F Bb F Bb Not one week after she moved in I caught her paintin' the bedroom blue; F Bb F Bb Brought home a bottle of Pink Chablis, poured out my best home brew. C Dm Bb * I was sittin' on the porch in my overhauls as she packed her things to leave; C F...............Bb... She changed her mind when she couldn't change me! F Bb She changed direction, headed out west; F Bb She changed her tune to some hip-hop mess; F (C) Dm Bb*(rif) Her dark brown hair went to blonde and her pretty blue eyes went to green: C F She changed everything when she couldn't change me. Repeat Intro: F Bb F Bb F F Bb Bb She was sittin' beside the ocean,... lookin' out at the waves; F Bb F Bb Watchin' how they keep on rollin',... but always seem the same. F Bb F Bb She called and said she'd been thinkin' about all those quiet country nights; F Bb F Bb And what-ever she thought was so wrong with me,... suddenly seemed alright. C Dm Bb* I was sittin' on the porch in my overhauls when her truck pulled into view; C F She said, "I changed my mind when I couldn't change you" . F Bb She changed dirrection, headed back home; F Bb She changed her tune, it's all Haggard and Jones; F (C) Bb F Had her dark brown hair pulled back and the bluest eyes you ever seen: C F She changed her mind when she couldn't me! Solo: (first four-line verse resolving into) Bb... F Bb She changed dirrection, she's back in my arms; F Bb She thought it through, but had a change of heart; F (C) Dm Bb*(rif) She said, "I guess when you love someone, you just gotta' let it be" : C F..............Bb She changed her mind when she couldn't change me...yeah-yeah: C F..............Bb F Bb She changed it all when she couldn't change me... F.............Bb F Bb F She couldn't change me!
