Alabama Clay  Garth Brooks

[D]First time he [A]saw the ground get busted he wa[Bm]s ten and it was ni[G]neteen  fifty two   [D]                   [A]  [AsusA]
His [D]daddy worked hard from sun up to sun[A] down        [Bm]
and the goi[G]ng got tuff hind th[D]em old grey mules.        [A]    [AsusA]
The fa[D]rm grew to be a mo[A]ney maker        [Bm]
and the hou[G]se he lived in grew up r[D]oom by room            [A]     [AsusA]
The bo[D]y worked hard but soon got ti[A]red of farming         [Bm]
So he sli[G]pped away one night benea[A]th the harvest moon.                [D]
                his neck was re[G]d as Alabama clay      [D]
                but the cities call [Bm]pulled him away     [A]
                he's hot a factory jo[G]b and runs a big machine      [D]
                he don't miss the far[A]m or the fields of green.   [D]
Now the citie[D]s just a prison [A]without fences.     [Bm]
His j[G]ob is just a rout[D]ine he can't stand    [A]
and at nig[D]ht he dreams of wide open [A]spaces         [Bm]
fresh di[G]rt beneath his toes a[D]nd on his hands.      [A]
Then one day a[D] picture came insi[A]de a letter         [Bm]
of a y[G]oung girl with a baby [D]in her arms.     [A]
And the word[D]s she wrote would change his life[A] forever.           [Bm]
So he wen[G]t to raise his family o[A]n the farm.        [D]
                his neck is [G]red as Alabama Clay   [D]
X2              now he's going hom[Bm]e this time to stay    [A]
                where the roots run deep[G] on the family tree       [D]
                and the tractor r[A]olls through the fields of green.   [D]
His neck is red..[G] Alabama clay.       [D]
