[Intro]
G F C G
[Verse]
G
I said,"Grandpa what's this picture here?
F
It's all black and white and it ain't real clear
C G
Is that you there? He said yeah, I was 11.
G
Times were tough back in '35
F
That's me and Uncle Joe just tryin' to survive
C
A cotton farm
G
And a great depression
[Chorus]
G
If it looks like we were scared to death
F C
Like a couple of kids just tryin' to save each other
C G
You should've seen it in color
[Verse]
G
Awe and this one here's taken overseas
F
In the middle of Hell in 1943
C G
In the winter time, you can almost see my breath
G
That was my tail gunner: Ole Johnny McGee
F
He was a High School teacher from New Orleans
C G
And he had my back, right through the day we left
[Chorus]
G
If it looks like we were scared to death
F C
Like a couple of kids just tryin' to save each other
C G
You should've seen it in color
G
A picture's worth a thousand words
F C
But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered.
C G
You should've seen it in color.

[Verse]
G
This one is my favorite one.
F
This is me and grandma in the summer sun
C G
All dressed up the day we said our vows.

You can't tell it here but it was hot that June
F
That rose was red and her eyes were blue
C G
And just look at that smile I was so proud.

Right there in black and white

Like a couple of kids just tryin' to save each other

A picture's worth a thousand words

But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered.

You should've seen it in color.
