South of Town  Adam Carroll

By Adam Carroll
Capo 2
[D]I went to the [G]barroom last night, I [D]promised not to [G]drink
be[Bm]fore I went out the [G]door that night I should have [D]promised not to [G]think
About the [Bm]flipside of my [G]actions when [Bm]I came home a[G]lone
but I'm [F#m]leavin' too so if [G]you come back you can ex[Em]pect to find me [A]gone
And if you [Bm]wonder where I am tell you [G]where I'll be
[Bm]Don't use a map or a dir[G]ectory cuz' I [Em]don't like making plans or [G]problems
I [D]just like [C]knockin' ar[G]ound cuz' doing [Em]nothing feels like [G]something
when your [A]somewhere [G]south of town[D]
Trees bring shade to a porch swing morning, the air smells somwhat clean
My only luxuries are my memories and they make room for my dreams
And pastures I've seen lots or pastures and dirt roads I've seen one
It may not take me to a destination but my destiny is just begun
Repeat Chorus
(I just like making my rounds)
Key change to
[Bm]Maybe tomorrow you can [G]find another [D]man
[F#m]tomorrow won't take [G]care of today, to[Em]morrow is the second [A]hand
And [Bm]postcards say I'm [D]sorry for [G]lack of a better of a [A]word
but [G]goodbye says I'll [D]love you, [G]goodbye never [A]hurt
You can go to Puerto Rico spend your weekdays in the sun
and you can kill time looking at historical markers along the Highway 21
But if you drive as far Crockett, TX or if you get on a plane
You can think of me in terms of your memories but you'll never hear me complain
