jeanned, give this a try. It's how I do it.

The Grandpa That I Know – Patty Loveless

Capo 4th fret

A7sus4=x02030

[D]// // // //
[D]// // // //
[D]// // // //
[D]// // // //
[D] Brand new shoes, they [G] hurt my [D] feet
This lace collar's [A7sus4] chokin' [D] me
Cuttin' off my [G] air sup-[D]-ply,
When I hang my [A7sus4] head to [D] cry
When I hang my [A7] head to [D] cry

I see tears on [G] daddy's [D] face
Someone's hummin' "A-[A7sus4]-mazing [D] Grace"
Rain beats on this [G] graveside [D] tier
Preacher says he [A7sus4] did repent
Preacher says he [A7] did re-[D]-pent

They've [A] got him layin' [D] there in pin stripes,
[G] How'd they get him [D] in that [A] suit
I [G] guess the Lord'll [D] recognize him
Without his over-[A7sus4]-alls an' [D] mule
An [A] they all say he [D] looks so natural
But [G] all I see's a [D] cold dark [A] hole
I [G] won't commit this [D] day to memory
That ain't the Grandpa [A7sus4] that I [D] know
That ain't the Grandpa [A7] that I [D] know // //
[G]// // [D]// // [A]// [D]// // // //

[D] The tractor never [G] pulled his [D] plough
He walked, an' cussed, an' [A7sus4] loved that [D] ground
His hand sowed each and [G] every [D] seed
An' he'd pray for rain an' [A7sus4] fight the [D] weeds
He'd pray for rain an' [A7] fight the [D] weeds

He said: "The simple life, it [G] suits me [D] fine"
Never dreamed beyond the [A7sus4] County [D] line
Grandma was his [G] boyhood [D] bride
He'll be there in her [A7sus4] arms to-[D]-night
He'll sleep there in her [A7] arms to-[D]-night

They've [A] got him layin' [D] there in pin stripes,
[G] How'd they get him [D] in that [A] suit
I [G] guess the Lord'll [D] recognize him
Without his over-[A]-alls an' [D] mule
An [A] They all say he [D] looks so natural
But [G] all I see's a [D] cold dark [A] hole
I [G] won't commit this [D] day to memory
That ain't the Grandpa [A7sus4] that I [D] know

They [A] played a pretty [D] organ number
[G] Swore it was his [D] favorite [A] tune
But [G] I know he pref-[D]-erred a fiddle
Playin' Carroll [A7sus4] County [D] Blues
An [A] they all say he [D] looks so natural
But [G] all I see's a [D] cold dark [A] hole
I [G] won't commit this [D] day to memory
That ain't the Grandpa [A7sus4] that I [D] know
That ain't the Grandpa [A7] that I [D] know // //
[G]// // [D]// // [A]// [D]/
