Alan Jackson - Small Town Southern Man

Printable Version


From "Good Time" [2008]
(Alan Jackson)

Capo: 1st Fret

INTRO:  [G]     [D]     [G]     [D]
        [G]     [D]     [A]-[G]-[D]

[G]Born the middle [D]son of a farmer and a [A7]small town Southern man [D]
[G]Like his daddy's [D]daddy before him brought up [A]workin' on the land
[G]Fell in love with a [D]small town woman and they [A7]married up and settled down [D]
[G]Natural way of [D]life if you're lucky for a [A]small town [G]Southern man [D]

[G]First there came [D]four pretty daughters for this [A7]small town Southern man.[D]
[G]Then a few years [D]later came another, hes a [A]boy, he wasn't planned
[G]Seven people [D]livin' all together in a [A7]house built with his own hands [D]
[G]Little words with [D]love and understandin' from a [A]small town [G]Southern man [D]

CHORUS
And he [G]bowed his head to [D]Jesus and he [G]stood for Uncle Sam [D]
And he [G]only loved one [D]woman. He was always [A]proud of what he had
He said his [G]greatest contri[D]bution is the [G]ones you leave behind
[G]Raised on the [D]ways and gentle kindness of a [A]small town [G]Southern man [D]

[G]Callous hands told the story for this [A7]small town Southern man [D]
[G]He gave it all to [D]keep it all together and keep his [A]family on his land
[G]Like his daddy, years [D]wore out his body made it [A7]hard just to walk and stand [D]
[G]You can break the back, but you [D]can't break the spirit of a [A]small town Southern man [D]

CHORUS

[G]Finally death [D]came callin' for this [A7]small town Southern man [D]
[G]He said it's al[D]right 'cause I see angels and they [A]got me by the hand
[G]Don't you cry and [D]don't you worry. I'm [A7]blessed, and I know I am [D]
[G]'Cause God has a [D]place in Heaven for a [A]small town Southern man [D]

CHORUS

[G]Raised on the [D]ways and gentle kindness of a [A]small town [G]Southern man.[D]
