INTRO: E/A A E/A A D A E Esus E Esus E A D
I was eight years old and running with a dime in my hand
[E/A] [A] [E/A] [A] [D] [A] [E] 
Into the bus stop to pick up a paper for my old man
[Esus] [E] [Esus] [E] [A] [D] 
I'd sit on his lap in that big old Buick and steer as we drove through town
[E/A] [A] [E/A] [A] [D] [A] [E] 
He'd tousle my hair and say son take a good look around
[Esus] [E] [Esus] [E] [A] [D] 
This is your hometown, this is your hometown
[A] [E/A] [A] [D] [A] [E] 
This is your hometown, this is your hometown
[Esus] [E] [Esus] [E] [A] [D] [E/A] [A] 
In `65 tension was running high at my high school
There was a lot of fights between the black and white
There was nothing you could do
Two cars at a light on a Saturday night in the back seat there was a gun
Words were passed in a shotgun blast
Troubled times had come to my hometown
My hometown, my hometown, my hometown
Now Main Street's whitewashed windows and vacant stores
[F#m] [E/A] [A] [E/A] [A] 
Seems like there ain't nobody wants to come down here no more
[F#m] [E/A] [A] [E/A] [A] 
They're closing down the textile mill across the railroad tracks
[D] [E/A] [A] [E/A] [A] 
Foreman says these jobs are going boys and they ain't coming back to
[D] [A] [E] 
Your hometown, your hometown, your hometown, your hometown
Last night me and Kate we laid in bed talking about getting out
Packing up our bags maybe heading south
I'm thirty-five we got a boy of our own now
Last night I sat him up behind the wheel and said son take a good look around
This is your hometown
