    Verse 1:

      C                            A                  G (x2)

    Wading through the waste stormy winter

      C                         A                      G (x2)
    And there’s not a friend to help you through

        C                        A                        G            C

    Trying to stop the waves behind your eyeballs

      G                      D                               G (x2)
    Drop your reds, drop your greens and blues

    Verse 2:

      C                            A          G (x2)
    Thank you for your wine, California

      C                            A                     G (x2)
    Thank you for your sweet and bitter fruits

        C                     A                 G            C
    Yes, I’ve got the desert in my toenail

      G                   D                       G (x2)
    And I hid the speed inside my shoe

    Chorus:

           C                          A                  G (x2)
    But come on come on down sweet Virginia

      C                      A                  G (x2)
    Come on honey child I beg of you
      C                          A                   G            C
    Come on come on down you got it in you

      G                          D                          G (x2)
    Got to scrape that shit right off your shoes
