Small Town  John Mellencamp

[G]I was [D]born in a [C]small town
[G]and I [D]live in a [C]small town
[G]probably [D]die in a [C]small town
oh, a [Am]small communi[D]ty
[G]all my [D]friends are so [G]small town
[G]my parents [D]live in the [C]same small town
[G]my [D]job is so [C]small town
provides [Am]little opportuni[D]ty

educated in a small town
taught to fear Jesus in a small town
used to daydream in that small town
another born romantic , that's me
I've seen it all in a small town
had myself a ball in a small town
married an LA darling, brought her to this small town
a small town, just like me
[C]I cannot [G]forget from [C]where it is I [G]come from
[C]I cannot forget the [G]people who [D]love me
I can [C]be my[G]self, yeah, [C]in a small [G]town
and [C]people let me [G]be just what I [D]wanna be

Oh, my, my, [Am]yeah
[D] [Am] [D] [Am] [D] [G]
[G]got nothing a[D]gainst the [C]big town
[G]still hayseed [D]enough to say [C]"look who's in the big town"
[G]my [D]bed is in a [C]small town
that's [Am]good enough for [D]me
[G]I was [D]born in a [C]small town
[G]and I can [D]breathe in a [C]small town
[G]gonna [D]die in a [C]small town
and that's [Am]probably where they'll bury [D]me
[G] [D] [C]
