Capo on the 2nd fret.
[G] [A] [D] Om[G]aha you've be[A]en weighing h[D]eavy on my m[G]ind
I guess i never r[A]eally left at a[D]ll
I'm t[G]urning all those r[A]oads i've walked ar[D]ound the other [G]way
And coming back to y[A]ou,Oma[D]ha
Verse 1:
Om[G]aha,Nebr[A]aska wasn't go[D]od enough for [G]me
I always thought i w[A]as the roamin' ki[D]nd
With a p[G]ocket full of dr[A]eams and my o[D]ne shirt on my b[G]ack
I left there looking for some things to f[A]ind
Verse 2:
Rode my th[G]umb to San Franc[A]isco,i wo[D]rked down by the b[G]ay
Got some schoolin' pai[A]d for by the l[D]aw
The ha[G]rdest thing i lea[A]rned was there a[D]in't no easy w[G]ay
To get ahead behind those county wa[A]lls
Verse 3:
So it's so [G]long Calif[A]ornia,i reckon' i[D]'ll be moving [G]on
I'm leaving ev[A]en if i had to cr[D]awl
I got s[G]ome loose en[A]ds around th[D]at i left und[G]one
Waiting there for[A] me in Oma[D]ha
