Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Where i come from  Alan Jackson

Alan did a great job on the CD 'When somebody Loves You'. I transcribed
this song and I found it easy to get the tempo. It is up beat and has a
'truckers beat.' I am not sure who wrote it but they did a great job of
wording. This is the way 'Where I Come From works' for me.


'WHERE I COME FROM'


ALAN JACKSON
Intro E A B7 E A B7 E A B7 D A E

[E]I WAS ROLLING WHEELS AND SHIFTING GEARS
[A]'ROUND THAT JERSEY TURN[B7]PIKE.
[E]WHEN BARNEY STOPPED ME WITH HIS GUN
[A]TEN MINUTES AFTER MIDNIGHT.        [B7]
[E]SAID SIR YOU BROKE THE LIMIT
[A]IN THAT RUSTY OL' TRUCK.  [B7]
D STOP
I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THAT ACCENT SON,
JUST WHERE DID YOU COME FROM?

Chours
[E]I SAID WHERE I COME FROM,
[A]ITS CORNBREAD AND  CHICKEN.          [B7]
[E]WHERE I COME FROM,
[A]A LOT OF FRONT PORCH SITTING. [B7]
[E]WHERE I COME FROM,
[A]TRYING TO MAKE A  LIVING,        [B7]
[D]AND WORKING HARD TO GET TO  [A]HEAVEN.
WHERE I COME FROM.     [E]
VERSE 2
I WAS SOUTH OF DETROIT CITY.
PULLED INTO THIS COUNTRY KITCHEN
TO TRY THEIR BRAND OF BARBQUE,
SIGN SAYES FINGER LICKING.
WELL I PAID THE TAB AND THE LADY ASKED ME,
HOW'D I LIKE MY BISCUIT?
STOP
I'LLBE HONEST WITH YOU MA'ME
IT AN'T LIKE MOMA'S FIXED IT.

MUSIC

VERSE 3
I WUZ CHASING SUN ON 101
SOMEWHERE 'ROUND VENTURA.
I HAD LOST A UNIVERSAL JOINT AND I HAD TO USE MY FINGER.
THIS TALL LADY STOPPED AND ASKED IF I HAD PLANS FOR DINNER.
STOP
I SAID NO THANKS MA'ME, BACK HOME WE LIKE GIRLS THAT SING SAPRANO.

VERSE 3
I WAS HEADING HOME ON 65
SOME WHERE AROUND KENTUCKY.
THE CB RANG FROM A BOBTAIL RIG
THAT'S A ROLLING ON LIKE THUNDER.
WELL I ANSWERED HIM AND HE ASKED ME
AREN'T YOU FROM OUT IN TULSA?
NO, BUT YOU MIGHT'A SEEN ME THERE,
STOP
I JUST DROPPED A LOAD OF SALSA.

CHOURS

CODA
I SAID WHERE I COME FROM
ITS CORNBREAD AND CHICKEN.
WHERE I COME FROM
LOT OF FRONT PORCH SITTING.
WHERE I COME FROM
TRYING TO MAKE A LIVING,
AND WORKING HARD TO GET TO HEAVEN,
WHERE I COME FROM
