Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Home  Alan Jackson

In a sm[C]all town in Georgia, over f[G]orty years ago
[F]Her maiden name was Musick Îtil she m[C]et that Jackson b[G]oy
[F]They married young like folks did then, not a pe[C]nny to their n[F]ame
But they bel[C]ieved the one you vowed to love
Should al[G]ways stay the s[C]ame

(Verse 2)
On the land his daddy gave them a found[G]ation underway
[F]For a love to last forever or u[C]ntil their dying d[G]ay
[F]They built a bond thatâs strong enough to st[C]and the test of t[F]ime
And a pl[C]ace for us to turn to when our li[G]ves
Where in a b[C]ind

(Chorus)
And they m[G]ade their house from a tool shed
Granddaddy ro[F/C]lled down on two l[C]ogs
And they b[G]uilt walls all around it and they [F/C]made
That house a h[G]ome
And they ta[F]ught us about good living
[C]They taught us right from wr[F]ong
Lord theyâll ne[C]ver be another place in this w[G]orld
That Iâll call h[C]ome

(Verse 3)

My mama raised five children, four girls then their was me
She found her strength with faith in God and love of family
She never had a social life, home was all she knew
Except the time she took a job to pay a bill or two

(Verse 4)

My daddy skinned his knuckles on the cars that he repaired
He never earned much money, but he gave us all he had
He never made the front page but he did the best he could
And folks drove their cars from all around
To let him look underneath the hood

(Repeat Chorus)
F C (one strum) G (one strum)
No theyâll never be another place in this world
That Iâll call h[F]ome     [C]        [G]        [C]       [F]    [C]
