      MY FRONT PORCH LOOKING IN     Lonestar

INTRO CHORDS:  
F Eb Bb C   F Eb Bb C    F Eb Bb C    F Eb Bb Bb
             "ooooo yeah" "whooo"  "yeah"  "oh yeah"
     F             C               Bb   
The only ground I ever owned was sticking to my shoes
       F           C                    Bb
Now I look out my front porch at this panoramic view
       F                  C                  Bb  
I can sit and watch the fields fill up with rays of golden sun
               F               C          Bb
or watch the moon lay on the fences like that was where it was hung
      C                               Bb   
My blessing aren't in front of me and it's not about the land
C                         Bb 
I'll never beat the view from my porch looking in
CHORUS:      
            F                  Dm                  Bb           C   
There's a carrot top that can barely walk with a Simpey cup of milk
          F                Bm                        
A little blue eyed blonde with her shoes on wrong 
  Bb                          C
Cause she likes to dress her-self
                Dm      Bb   C               Dm   
and the most beautiful girl holding both of them 
          Eb  D  F   Bb    C  n.c.                      F Eb Bb C F Eb Bb Bb 
Yeah the view I love the most is my front porch looking in

        F                 C          Bb   
I've traveled here and everythere following my job
      F                  C             Bb  
I've seen the paintings from the air brushed by the hand of God
       F                 C               Bb  
The mountains and the cannons reach from sea to shining sea
        F            C                   Bb 
But I can't wait to get back home to the one He  made for me
  C                               Bb
Cause everywhere I ever go and everywhere I've been
          C                            Bb 
Nothing takes my breathe away like my front porch looking in

INTERLUDE:
   Eb              Bb  
I see what beauti-ful is all about
           G#            F                C
When I'm looking in not when I'm looking out     to chorus, ending

ENDING: 
          Bb           C   n.c.                       F 
Wooo the view I love  most Is my front porch looking in yeah yeah
Vamp on  F Eb Bb C  for the rest of the song  ad libbing the following
                    Listen to the recording for timing
Oh that's a carrot top that can barely walk
A little blue eyed blonde with shoes all wrong yeah
And the most beautiful girl (beautiful girl)
My frontporch looking in  (front porch looking in) Whoooo yeah
