Alabama Clay

Garth Brooks

 DABmGDAAsusA
 First time he saw the ground get busted he was ten and it was nineteen  fifty two                         
 DABm
His daddy worked hard from sun up to sun down         
 GDAAsusA
and the going got tuff hind them old grey mules.             
 DABm
The farm grew to be a money maker         
 GDAAsusA
and the house he lived in grew up room by room                  
 DABm
The boy worked hard but soon got tired of farming          
 GAD
So he slipped away one night beneath the harvest moon.                 
 GD
                his neck was red as Alabama clay       
 BmA
                but the cities call pulled him away      
 GD
                he's hot a factory job and runs a big machine       
 AD
                he don't miss the farm or the fields of green.    
 DABm
Now the cities just a prison without fences.      
 GDA
His job is just a routine he can't stand     
 DABm
and at night he dreams of wide open spaces          
 GDA
fresh dirt beneath his toes and on his hands.       
 DABm
Then one day a picture came inside a letter          
 GDA
of a young girl with a baby in her arms.      
 DABm
And the words she wrote would change his life forever.            
 GAD
So he went to raise his family on the farm.         
 GD
                his neck is red as Alabama Clay    
 BmA
X2              now he's going home this time to stay     
 GD
                where the roots run deep on the family tree        
 AD
                and the tractor rolls through the fields of green.    
 GD
His neck is red......as Alabama clay.
