Charleys Picture chords by Porter Wagoner

Charley's Picture
Porter Wagoner
Album:

Intro
C#

C#                 F#            C#
A wino we called Charley had a picture
                                      G#
That he wore around his neck upon a chain
          C#              F#                 C#
But you couldn't see the face in Charley's picture
                            G#          C#
Just long brown hair and a poem in the frame

C#                    F#                  C#
We tried and tried to see old Charley's picture
                                         G#
But we couldn't even tempt him with the wine
      C#                  F#               C#
His shaking hands would tightly grip the picture
                     G#            C#
And he'd recite the poem one more time

C#                         F#         C#
You grace this frame the picture of affection
                                    G#
While I'm the perfect picture of disgrace
     C#                  F#              C#
And upon your name I'll swear until I'm worthy
                     G#             C   A
I forbid my eyes to look upon your face

Change Key to D, Step UP:
 D                     G                D
Old Charley froze to death one Sunday morning
                                       A
We found him and I guess you know the rest
      D                G              D
Some-one removed the poem from his picture
                             A               D
And the chilling truth lay framed upon his chest

(Spoken ? Same Chord Progression as above)

As I knelt beside his body the picture

Lay there before my anxious eyes

And with trembling lips I whispered the words of Charley's poem

As I stared into the face of Jesus Christ

D                          G          D
You grace this frame the picture of affection
                                    A
While I'm the perfect picture of disgrace
                          G               D
And upon your name I'll swear until I'm worthy
                     A              D
I forbid my eyes to look upon your face
