Ain't What It Used to Be  Billy Currington

Capo: 2nd fret
Intro: G Am C G (2x)
Th[G]at backward town, in [Am]my rearview
Wa[C]s gonna be my whole w[G]orld
Ti[G]l my factory job, got s[Am]hipped to Mexico
An[C]d a city boy stole my sweet [G]girl
I [G]used to know everybody [Am]by name
Ev[C]erybody's moved awa[G]y
Ca[G]n't say that I'm really wan[Am]tin' to go
But I've [C]run out of reasons to [G]stay
This ain't n[G]othi[D]n' l[Am]ike what [C]I,
[Am] ha[D]d in mind for [G]me
Then a[G]gain [D]my f[Am]utur[C]e,
[Am] Ain't what[D] it used to b[G]e
Well I tho[G]ught like my dad, and his d[Am]addy before
That [C]I would die where I was b[G]orn
Live a sm[G]alltown dream in a b[Am]ig backyard
[C] Raisin' babies and c[G]orn
Now he[G]re I am, one e[Am]ye on the road
Try[C]in' to read the map on the d[G]ash
Now[G]here close to making [Am]up my mind
With a f[C]ork in the road comin' fa[G]st
(chorus 2x)
G (one strum) Am (one strum)
That backward town, in my rear view
(pick) C D G
Was gonna be my whole world
Outro: G Am C G (play to fade)
