    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]/
