Southern Kind Of Life  Kasey Chambers

Intro play twice:    [G] [G] [C]

[G] I grew up a long way from here [C]
[G] I slept with the lights on [C] for fifteen years
And [G] Sabbath kept me home on Fri[C]day Nights
And [G] Daddy sang me Rogers
Just to [C] make everything all right
[G] My town wasn’t even on the [C] map
[G] You could pass right through it in [C] twenty seconds flat
But the [G] south was like the whole world to [C] me
[G] Wasn't easy to stay but it was [C] harder to [D] leave

[CBORUS] 
Yeah I was a [C] south [D] bound [G] child
Yeah I had a [C] small [D] town [G] life
But I turned [C] out [D] all [G] right [C] in the North
[D] Living that Southern kind of [G] life
[C]    [G]    [C]    [G]                         
Old friends and Bibles filled the [C] house
[G] No room for money and no [C] money anyhow
[G] Deprived was something we al[C]ways heard
[G] But to me and my brother it was [C] just another word
[G] I used to think the north was the [C] end
[G] Cos people go there and they don’t [C] come back [D] again
[G] But my fathers father was a [C] man of the sea
[G] He lived the southern life two [C] blocks away from [D] me
CHORUS x 2

[C]    [G]    [C]    [G]    [C]    [G]
