Where I Come From   Alan Jackson

[E]Well I was rollin? wheels and shiftin? gears round that Jersey Turnpike
[E]When Barney stopped me with his gun ten minutes after midnight
[E]Said sir you broke the limit in that rusty ol? truck
I don?t [G]know about that accent son, just [E]where do you come from?

Chorus:
Lick starts
I said [E]where I come from it?s [A]cornbread and chicken
[E]Where I come from lot of front porch [A]sittin?
W[E]here I come from tryin? to ma[A]ke a livin?
Workin?[B7] hard to get to heaven [A]where I come [E]from


Verse II:
[E]Well I was south of Detroit city, pulled in this country kitchen
[E]To try their brand of barbeque the sign said finger lickin?
[E]Well I paid the tab and the lady asked me how?d I like my biscuit
I?ll be [G]honest with you ma?am it [E]ain?t like mama fixed it


Chorus:
Lick starts
Ĕ A
Cause where I come from it?s cornbread and chicken
W[E]here I come from lot of front porch [A]pickin?
W[E]here I come from tryin? to make a [A]livin?
W[B7]orkin? hard to get to heaven [A]where I come [E]from


Verse III:
[E]I was chasin? sun on 101 somewhere around Ventura
[E]I lost a universal joint and I had to use my finger
[E]This tall lady stopped and asked if I had plans for dinner
Said [G]no thanks ma?am, back home we like the [E]girls that sing soprano

Chorus:
Lick starts
Ĕ A
Cause where I come from it?s cornbread and chicken
Whe[E]re I come from lot of front porch [A]sittin?

Workin? [B7]hard to get to heaven [A]where I come [E]from


Verse IV:
[E]Well I was headed home on 65 somewhere around Kentucky
[E]The CB rang for a bobtail rig that?s rollin? on like thunder
[E]Well I answered him and he asked me aren?t you from out in Tulsa
No[G], but you might?a seen me there I just [E]dropped a load of salsa


Chorus:
Lick starts
Ĕ A
Where I come from it?s cornbread and chicken
