      About "In Color"

      Lyrics for Jamey Johnson - "In Color"

      I said grandpa whats this picture here
      Its all black and white
      It ain't real clear is that you there?
      He said yeah I was eleven

      Times were tough back in '35
      That's me and uncle Joe just tryin' to survive
      A cotton farm, in a great depression.

      If it looks like we were scared to death
      Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
      You should've seen it in color.

      Oh and this one here was taken over seas
      In the middle of hell in 1943
      In the winter time, you can almost see my breath

      That was my tail gunner ole Johnny Magee
      He was a high school teacher from New Orleans
      And he had my back right through the day we left.

      If it looks like we were scared to death
      Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
      You should've seen it in color.

      A pictures worth a thousand words
      But you cant see what those shades of gray keep covered
      You should've seen it in color

      This one is my favorite one.
      This is me and grandma in the summer sun
      All dressed up the day we said our vows.
      You can't tell it here but it was hot that June
      And that rose was red and her eyes were blue
      And just look at that smile I was so proud.
      That's the story of my life right there in black and white

      If it looks like we were scared to death
      Like a couple of kids just trying to save each other
      You should've seen it in color.

      A pictures worth a thousand words
      But you cant see what those shades of gray keep covered
      You should have seen it in color.

      You should have seen it in color

      Yeah a pictures worth a thousand words
      But you cant see what those shades of gray keep covered
      You should have seen it in color
