Brandon Jenkins

Capo II
Intro:  D D G D A G D
I grew up poor on an old dirt lot, 

half a mile from the nearest black top
my daddy got it cheap use to be a land fill, 
he helped to buy it on the G.I. Bill
life was slow on the reservation, 

there on the edge of the Sac and Fox Nation
G                                      D
watchin the cars go by as the sun went down, 
      A                         G                       D
and I dreamed about a life far away from this red dirt town

I remember the day I turned eighteen, 
I hitched a ride to the Dairy Queen
it was right across the street from the old bus stop, 
mama begged me not to leave but I could not stop
ticket in hand and ready for adventure, 
felt like a slave released from indenture
I'd come this far, too far to turn back now
and I got away as fast as I could from this red dirt town

Bm                 G
Gets in your blood, gets on your boots
it's hard to shake the dirt from your roots
Bm                        G                   A
you can tell by the way I look and the way I sound
 G                    D
I come from a red dirt town

I was headed for the promise land, 
the big city's where I'd make my stand
after three long days on a Grey Hound bus
But, the grass didn't seem as green, as it did on the movie screen
those streets of gold were boarded up and run down, 
and I missed my life back home in that red dirt town


Instrumental:  F#m G D F#m G A

Wasn't long till I was down and out, 
guess Mama knew what she was talkin about
when she said there's nothin worse than bein alone, 
seventeen hundred miles away from home
When I couldn't last another day, 
I made the hardest call I ever had to make
Mama picked up the phone, and that's when I just broke down
and she said son you can always come home to this red dirt town


Theres a walkdown at the chorus to go to the Bm, and the intros not to hard to 
figure out but I didn't tab it out here.
