Southern Accent  Tom Petty

[F]There’s a [Dm]sout[C]hern [F]accent, where [Dm-C]I   come [F]from
The [Dm]young’uns [C]call it [F]country
The [A#]yankees call it [C]dumb
I got my [Dm]own [C]way of [F]talkin’
But [A#]everything is [C]done, with a [Dm-]sout[C]hern [A#]accent
(still A#) F
Where I come from

Now that drunk tank in atlanta’s
Just a motel room to me
Think I might go work orlando
If them orange groves don’t freeze
I got my own way of workin’
But everything is run, with a southern accent
Where I come from

[A#]For just a minute there [Dm]I was dreaming
[A#]For just a minute it was [Dm]all so real
[A#]For just a minute she was [C]standing [F]there, with [A#]me  [F]

There’s a dream I keep having
Where my mama comes to me
And kneels down over by the window
And says a prayer for me
I got my own way of prayin’
But everyone’s begun
With a sou thern accent
Where I come from

I got my [Dm]own [C]way of [F]livin’
But [A#]everything gets [C]done
With a [Dm-]sout[C]hern [A#]accent
Where I come from  [F]
