Uptown Down-Home Good Ol' Boy  Garth Brooks

Intro:        D-----------G------------A             D

[D]He'll never wear a business suit, Cowboy hats and bull hide boots
Just suit [G]him fine, see that buckle shine         [A]
He won it in a ro[A]deo, on  a horse named desperado______
and he won the[Em] ride but he broke his back       [A]
hi[Em]t so hard he heard it crack-No more [A]rodeo                       [D]
(Verse 2, same chord progression)
But you can't keep a good man down, a line of western wear uptown
heard of his fame, and they bought his name.
Now he looks down from a suite
At the silver limo parked across the street
And he's not just a face in a martini crowd
He drinks long neck-Bud and gets a little loud
and lands back on his feet.
Hes and uptown, do[D]wn home good ol' [G]boy              [A]
In a bu[A]siness world so fast, on a horse of a different color
but he'll hang on til th[G/B]e last              [A/C#]
Well he's still the [D]local hero, he's the home town pride and joy     [G]
He's an uptown, d[D]own-home good [G]ol' boy             [A]                      [D]

(Verse 3)
A Woman loved him through it all
Through his rowdy days and his hardest fall
When he almost died, she stayed by his side
She's still right there today
He wouldn't have it any other way
And he never did get to proud
To hang out with the same old crowd
we're proud to say

(last chorus)
Hes and uptown, down home good ol' boy
in a business world so fast, but its a different saddle
than he once rode in the past
Well he's still the local hero, he's the home town pride and joy
He's an uptown, down-home good ol' boy
Yeah,[D] he's an uptown , down home good ole boy
