Small Town (from the album "Scare Crow")

INTRO: G D2 C9 G D2 C9 G D2 C9 G D2 C9

(Repeat G D2 C9 throughout each line of the verse, except the last)
Well I was born in a small town
And I live in a small town
Prob'ly die in a small town
Oh, those small communities
Am D2

All my friends are so small town
My parents live in the same small town
My job is so small town
Provides little opportunity

Educated in a small town
Taught the fear of Jesus in a small town
Used to daydream in that small town
Another boring romantic that's me

But I've seen it all in a small town
Had myself a ball in a small town
Married an L.A. doll and brought her to this small town
Now she's small town just like me

No I cannot forget where it is that I come from
G C9

I cannot forget the people who love me
G D2

Yeah, I can be myself here in this small town
G C9

And people let me be just what I want to be
G D2


Got nothing against a big town (After each line of verse ending with
Still hayseed enough to say "town," guitarist plays:
Look who's in the big town ----0-----------
But my bed is in a small town ------3---------
Oh, and that's good enough for me --------0------- )

Well I was born in a small town
And I can breathe in a small town
Gonna die in this small town
And that's prob'ly where they'll bury me
