1.     Creole Williams       lived down a dirt road,

Em                             D                 C          G

    made homemade wine like nobody I know.

G                              D                             - C                                G

    Dropped by one Friday night and said,     can you help me, Creole ?

Em                       D                           - C                           G

    Got a little girl waitin' on me and I       wanna treat her right. He said :

D                          Em                - C

    I got what you need son, it's         sittin down in the cellar,

D                                       Em                     C                   D

    he reached through the cobwebs as he turned on the light and said :

 

G                      D              C                G

    There might be a little dust on the bottle,

Em                       D                       C

    but don't let it fool you about what's inside.

G                      D              C                G

    There might be a little dust on the bottle,

Em                           D                          C

    it's one of those things that gets sweeter with time.

 

    G                                    D                      - C                        G

2.    She was sittin’ in the porch swing as I      pulled up the driveway,

Em                            D                  - C                   G

    my ole heart was racing as she       climbed inside.

G                                 D           - C                                G

    She slid over real close and        drove down to the lake road,

Em                    D                       C          G

    watched the sun fade in that big red sky.

D                                 Em                   C

   I reached under the front seat and said, now here's something special,

D                       Em                C               D

    it's just been waiting for a night like tonight.

 

+  CHORUS        +  G - D - C - G - Em - D - C (2x)  - G

 

   D                    Em        - C                              G

+     You're still with me,        we made some memories,

D                         Em                  C

    after all these years, there’s one thing I've found.

 

 

 

 

 

D                    Em          - C                          G

    Some say good love,        well, it's like a fine wine,

D                           Em                 C          D    - D7

    it keeps getting better as the days go by.

 

G                      D              C                G

    There might be a little dust on the bottle,

Em                       D                       C

    but don't let it fool you about what's inside.

G                      D              C                G

    There might be a little dust on the bottle,

Em                           D                          C

    it's one of those things that gets sweeter with time.

 

+  repeat CHORUS
