Small Town Southern Man

Alan Jackson

capo 3

 FCGC
 Born the middle son of a farmer And a small town Southern man
 FCG
 Like his daddy's daddy before him Brought up workin' on the land
 FCGC
 Fell in love with asmall town woman And theymarried up and settled down
 FCGFC
 Natural way of life if you're lucky For a small town Southern man
 FCGC
 First there came four lovely daughters For this small town Southern man
 FCG
 Then a few years later came another,A boy, he wasn't planned
 FCGC
 Seven people livin' all together In a house built with his own hands
 FCGFC
 Little words but love and understandin'From a small town Southern man

Chorus:
 FC
And he bowed his head to Jesus
 FC
And he stood for Uncle Sam
 FC
And he only loved one woman
 G
He was always proud of what he had
 FC
He said his greatest contribution
 FC
Is the ones you leave behind
 FCGFC
 Raised on the ways and gentle kindness Of a small town Southern man               C                            
 FCGC
 Callous hands told the story For this small town Southern man
 FCG
He gave it all to keep it all together And keep his family on his land
 FCGC
 Like his daddy, years wore out his body Made it hard just to walk and stand
 FCGFC
You can break the back But you can't break the spirit Of a small town Southern man

Repeat Chorus
 FCGC
 Finally death came callin' For this small town Southern man
 FCG
He said it's alright 'cause I see angels And they got me by the hand
 FCGC
 Don't you cry, and don't you worry I'm blessed, and I know I am
 FCGFC
 'Cause God has a place in Heaven For a small town Southern man

(Repeat Chorus
 FCGFC
 Raised on the ways and gentle kindness Of a small town Southern man
