           DADDY WON'T SELL THE FARM    Montgomery Gentry

D                                              C                D
His cows get loose and run right through the fast food parking lot
D                                                      C
And daddy gets calls from the minimalls when they're down wind 
            D
from his stalls 
D                           C                 G                 D
When his tractor backs up traffic Well the reception ain't too warm
D                      C             G                   D
The city's growing a-round him but Daddy won't sell the farm

CHORUS:
                  D
You can't roll a rock up a hill that steep
      C
You can't pull roots when they run that deep
G                    D          C               G
He's gonna live and die in the eye of an urban storm
G                      D
Daddy won't sell the farm



D                                             C                           D
He worked and slaved back in sixty-eight He bought these buildings with trees
D                                           C         D
He raised corn and a big red barn  And a healthy fami-ly
      D                   C          G                    D 
He learned to love the woodlands He can't stand the dome arc
D               C             G                   D       
Concrete all around him but Daddy won't sell the farm

Go to chorus
C                            G
One day he's gonna leave it all to me
           D                           C
And I'll start my own branch of the family tree
D                          C                        A
They'll get the message written on the roof of the barn
G                      D
Daddy won't sell the farm

Lead

Chorus
 G                    D          C                G
We're gonna live and die in the eye of an urban storm
G                      D
Daddy won't sell the farm

"Oh you know a country boy can survive"
