Where I'm From  Jason Michael Carroll

Where I'm From - Jason Michael Carroll
Capo 1
Intro: GCD
Verse 1
On a [C]three hour flight from Memphis to [G]LA
I w[C]as silently celebrating my first class[G] upgrade
[D]Laughing at my [C]jeans and my[G] boots
Beside those [C]high dollar shoes and Armani[D] suits
Verse 2
When th[C]e gentlemen next to me said the drinks up here are [G]free
So i[C]f you like, the first one can be on[G] me
[D]He said I'm heading back from b[C]usiness in New York and[G] Rome
Tell me[C] son, where do you call [D]home?
Chorus 1
I said I'm from the[G] front pew of a [C]wooden white church
[G]A courthouse clock that[C] still dont work
[G]Where a man's word[Em] means everythin[DC]g
[G]Where moms and dads were[C] high school flings
[G]And gave their children grandmothers[C] maiden names
[G]Yes it may not sound like[D] much
[D]But it's where I'm f[G]rom[CD]
Verse 3
[C]So we drank that round, and then [G]another
[C]There wasnt a topic in this world we did not [G]cover
[D]He said I headed out west [C]when I was barely[G] nineteen
[C]Just a kid chasing my [D]dreams
Verse 4
[C]And I said Im flying out here to pick up my big [G]brother
[C]Hes been fighting the cancer they [G]discovered
[D]But he called last n[C]ight and said I t[G]hink this is the end
So come take me[C] home to my family and m[D]y friends
Chorus 2
[G]Where the quarterback dates th[C]e homecoming queen
[G]The truck's a ford and t[C]he tractor's green
[G]And amazing grace is [Em]what we sin[DC]g
[G]Theres a county fair [C]every fall
[G]And your friends are there no matter[C] when you call
[G]It may not sound like [D]much
[D]But it's where I'm [G]from[CD]
Verse 5
[Em]And as we stood to claim the bags we checked
[D]He said I'll pray for your brother and did I mention that
[G]Italian suits havent [C]always been my style
[Em]See I was the quarterback of my high school team
[D]We took state back in sixty three
[C]And my wife, shes still my homecoming [D]queen
Chorus 3
[G]Cuz Im from the front pew of a [C]wooden white church
[G]A courthouse clock tha[C]t still dont work
[G]Where a man's word [Em]means everythin[DC]g
[G]Where moms and dads were high school f[C]lings
[G]And gave their children grandmother[C]s maiden names
[G]Yes it may not sound like [D]much
[C]I said it may not sound like [D]much
[D]But it's where I'm [G]from[CD]
[D]It's where I'm [G]from[CD]
[D]It's where I'm [G]from[CD]
