[Intro]
F  Dm  A#  C  2x

[Verse]
F
Running round in this new truck,
Dm
bank let's me borrow from month to month,
A#
Running out of credit
                              C
and find a little cash on the radio.
F
Standing still they're blowing past,
Dm
numbers on cars going nascar fast,
A#
What I wouldn't give for a slowdown,
C
don't you know.


[Pre-Chorus]
            A#                    C
Cause where I come from, only the horses run,
         A#                        C~
When the day is done, we take it easy.


[Chorus]
F
Meanwhile back at Mama's,
    Dm
the porch light's on come in if you wanna,
A#
Supper's on the stove and beers in the fridge,
C
red sun sinking out low on the ridge.
F
Game's on the tube and Daddy smokes cigarettes,
Dm
whiskey keeps his whistle wet,
A#
Funny the things you thought you'd never miss,
     C                        \
in a world gone crazy as this.


[Interlude]
F  Dm  A#  C


[Verse]
       F
Well I found a girl and we don't fit in here.
Dm
Talk about how hard it is to breathe here,
     A#
Even with the windows down

can't catch a southern breeze here,
  C~
One of these days gonna

pack it up and leave here


[Chorus]
F
Meanwhile back at Mama's,
    Dm
the porch light's on come in if you wanna,
A#
Supper's on the stove and beers in the fridge,
C
red sun sinking out low on the ridge.
F
Game's on the tube and Daddy smokes cigarettes,
Dm
whiskey keeps his whistle wet,
A#
Funny the things you thought you'd never miss,
     C
in a world gone crazy as this.

F  Dm  A#  C  2x


[Bridge]
      F
Oh, I miss, yeah, a little dirt on the road.
  Dm
I miss corn growing in a row.
  A#
I miss being somebody everybody knows,
       C
where everybody knows everybody.
  F
I miss those small town roots.
Dm
Walking around in muddy boots.
    A#
The sound of rain on an old tin roof,
       C~
it's time we head on back.


[Chorus 2]
       F
'Cause meanwhile back at Mama's,
    Dm
the For Sale sign's going up and I'm gonna,
A#
Dump this truck and the little
           C
I got on a loan to own and a three-acre lot.
    F
Put supper on the stove and beer in the fridge,
Dm
going for broke and we're gonna be rich,
A#
Watch the sun setting on the ridge, baby,
  C~
tell me what you think about this

[Outro]
F                         Dm  A#  C
Me and you back at Mama's.
      F                          Dm  A#    C~
Yeah, me and you back at Mama's.
