Intro: CC chord

Verse:
CC chord
And I sing songs about the past
How I was raised And how I was thrown out on my ass

FF chord
'Cause I didn't care
                    CC chord
'Bout going to school

CC chord
And I saw the look in her eyes
                                                       FF chord
My mother nearly cried when I told her that I wanted to go
                      CC chord
Just to prove them wrong

AmAm chord
I've been smoking Cigarettes

           FF chord
Since I was only fourteen
        CC chord - hold -
Just to find an escape
          FF chord - hold -                  CC chord
From this town that was so mean to me

CC chord
And I sing songs about my friends
And how we grew up
                                  FF chord
In all the loose ends, we used to laugh
                       CC chord
'Cause I didn't give a damn

CC chord
And I saw the look in my brothers eyes
When I told him I was leaving
                     FF chord
He couldn't help but despise me
                         CC chord
He's wanted out his whole life

AmAm chord
I've been smokin' the green

           FF chord
Since I was merley sixtee
        CC chord - hold -
Just to find an escape
          FF chord - hold -                  CC chord
From this town that was so mean to me

CC chord
And I sing songs about the past

AmAm chord
I plea for relief
This town won't recede

CC chord
The things that I want

FF chord
The things that I need

AmAm chord
I'll beg and I"ll beg
I'm down on my knees

CC chord
Momma, oh Momma

FF chord
Let me please leave

AmAm chord
I plea for relief
This town won't recede

CC chord
The things that I want

FF chord
The things that I need

FF chord                       CC chord
All I ever wanted was Love
