    WHERE THE GREEN GRASS GROWS     Tim McGraw


Intro chords   G D G D G D G D   G D Em C   G D C

G           D           Em                  C
Six lanes, tail lights, red ants marching into the night
G              D                      C
They disappear to the left and right again
G               D           Em          C
Another supper from a sack  A 99 cent heart attack
G                                  D
I've got a pounding heart and an aching back
          C
And the camel's buried in a big tall stack

CHORUS:
G                          D
I'm gonna live where the green grass grows
G                 D
Watch my corn pop up in rows
G                D                 C
Every night be tucked in close to you
G                D
Raise our kids where the good Lord's blessed
G                         D
Point our rocking chairs towards the West
G                D                        C
Plan our dreams where the peaceful river flows
            D           G   D Em C G D C
Where the green grass grows


G              D          Em                C
Where I'm from a map dot  A stop sign on a black top
G                    D                 C   
Caught the first bus I could hop from there
G                           D
But all of the glitter is getting dark
      Em                     C
The concrete pouring in the city park
G                      D
I don't know who my neighbors are
             C
And there's bars on the windows bars on my heart

Chorus, lead, chorus
                 D           G
Wo,  where the green grass grows
