Intro: G D Em C/ G D C (stop on C)

Verse: Well this [G] life that I [D] live has [Em] took me every[C]where  [G]theyre aint no [G] place I aint never [C] gone.

Well its [G] kinda like the [D] saying that youve [Em] heard so  many [C] times. Well, theres [G] just aint [D] no place like [C]  home.

[G]  [D]  [C]                                 
Verse: If youve [G] ever seen a [D] She Gator [Em] protect her [C]  youngin. Or a [G] fish in the [D] river swimming [C] free.

Did you [G] ever see the [D] beauty of the [Em] hills of [C] Carolina? Or the  [G] sweetness of the [D] grass of [C] Tennessee?

Did ya [G] ever stop and [D] think about well the [Em] air  youre [C] breathing? Well [G] ya better [D] listen to my [C]  song.

Repeat Chorus

(Another Instrumental break, I dont have my guitar handy, but I think  it either stays in [G] or goes to possibly [A]. If you find out 100% sure, tell  me.)

Verse: Im not [G] trying to put down [D] no big [C] city. But the [G]  things they write about [D] us is just a [C] bore.

You can [G] take a boy out [D] of ol [Em] Dixie [C] land, Lord, but  youll [G] never take ol [D] Dixie from a [C] boy.

Repeat Chorus

Repeat last line of Chorus and end with: And [G] Lord take me and [D] mine  before that [Em] comes

(On last line, only hit chord once. This a great song, my e-mail is My favorite line is, "You can take a boy out of ol Dixie Land, but youll never take ol Dixie from a boy." That is so daggon true! Thanks see-ya!
