Song: Boondocks
Artist: Little Big Town
Tabbed By: acoustixforever

Capo 2nd fret


I feel no shame
I'm proud of where I came from
      C        G                 D
I was born and raised in the boondocks
One thing I know
No matter where I go
          C         G               D
I keep my heart and soul in the boondocks


And I can feel
     C                              D
That muddy water running through my veins
          Am        C                     D
And I can hear that lullaby of a midnight train
   C                  G
It sings to me and it sounds familiar

(Repeat Chorus)

And I can taste
     C                             D
That honeysuckle and it's still so sweet
When it grows wild
C                             D
On the banks down at old camp creek
             C                  G
Yeah, and it calls to me like a warm wind blowing

(Repeat Chorus)


G                          D
It's where I learned about living
G                          D
It's where I learned about love
G                          D 
It's where I learned about working hard
    C                   G 
And having a little was just enough
G                          D
It's where I learned about Jesus
G                   D
And knowing where I stand
G                    D       C
You can take it or leave it, this is me
G            D
This is who I am

(Solo)    D - D - C - G - D

(Pre-chorus - I enjoy strumming the chords lightly through this even though the
 song only has one or two strums per chord)

Give me a tin roof
  C                    D
A front porch and a gravel road
And that's home to me
It feels like home to me

(Repeat Chorus)

          C         G               D
I keep my heart and soul in the boondocks

** NC (1st time around) **

You get a line, I'll get a pole
We'll go fishing in the crawfish hole
Five-card poker on a Saturday night
Church on Sunday morning

** 2nd time has light single strums, 3rd time play these chords **

You get a line, I'll get a pole
C                       G
We'll go fishing in the crawfish hole
(Down in the boondocks)

Five-card poker on a Saturday night
C         G      D   
Church on Sunday morning
