                Small Town
By John Cougar Mellencamp


C G F   G x4


C            G         F          G
  Well I was born in a smalltown
C       G         F          G
  and I live in a smalltown
C         G        Am
  Pro’bly die in a smalltown
         Dm           G
Oh those small communities


C        G              F          G
  All my friends are so small town
C            G           F              G
  My parents live in the same small town
C    G         Am
  My job is so small town
           Dm              G
  Provides little opportunity


C G F   G x2

C          G    F             G
  Educated in a small town
C                    G          F            G
  Taught the fear of Jesus in a small town
C            G     Am
  Used to daydream in that small town
   Dm                            G
  Another boring romantic that's me


         C       G        F          G
But I've seen it all in a small town
C              G         F              G
  Had myself a ball in a small town
C            G                         Am
  Married an L.A. doll and brought her to this small town
            Dm                   G
  Now she's small town just like me
 

BRIDGE:
     F         C                 F              C
No I cannot forget from where it is that I come from
     F              C          G
I cannot forget the people who love me
            F    C         F             C
Yeah, I can be myself here in this small town
    F             C              G
And people let me be just what I wanna be


C G F   G x2

(Finger picking lightly for 2 bars)
C


(Very lightly thru last 2 verses)
C              G        F             G
  Got nothing against a big town
C                G            F                            G
  Still hayseed enough to say look who's in the big town
C        G           Am
  But my bed is in a small town
                 Dm              G
  Oh, and that's good enough for me


C            G         F             G
  Well I was born in a small town
C           G            F             G
  And I can breathe in a small town
C       G           Am
  Gonna die in this small town
           Dm                         G
And that's prob'ly where they'll bury me
