D* (x5403x)
      G   C/G

 G                 C/G   G
I wanna merry miss Tenesse
      C/G    G     D        Em 
She'd never love a man like me
        C/G     G            D           G
Just an honest fact, I don't pay enough tax
     C          D
To entertain a woman like that

I've been waiting on tables
      C/G       G
I've waiting on dreams
         C/G         G             D         Em
Bought a beer with change from the washing machines
        C/G         G
I got a dog and he loves me
      D        G
Got a few good friends
    C                       D*
Someday my dreams are gonna pay my rent

      Em                  C G
Gonna keep my faith and hope in
      Em              C G
Keep moving without knowing
    C/G       G              C/G      G
She broke my plans like the (Southern land?)
   G                   D
Something in her eyes I saw
       C            D*
were shining like America


 G                 C/G   G
I wanna merry miss Tenesse
      C/G    G     D        Em 
She'd never love a man like me
           C/G          G
I bought a second hand suit
             D           G
But it only came with one shoe
          C                    D*
She's the kind girl that want a man like me to wear 2

     G                           C/G        G
They put a Billboard, on main street first
  C/G           G          D       Em
Blocking the sunset with a Bible verse
          C/G      G       D            G
They say Heaven's nice, I make plans to go
 C                D*
walking barefoot down streets of gold

          Em           C   G
But am I only wishing blindly
        Em                  C   G
Someone down here treat me kindly
 C/G   G     C/G        G
Even still I think she will
          G                       D
There was something in her eyes I saw
           C            D
They were shining like America


        Em             D
Oh and where have you gone
         G             C
I don't know, I don't know
I can't change your heart
         D        G
I can't change my own

         Em            D
Felt a chill in the night,
         G    C
Felt an open door
You just wanted me to want you
  Now you don't want me anymore, anymore...

 G                 C/G   G
I wanna merry miss Tenesse
     C/G       G     D       Em
But she won't love a man like me
     C/G  G                    D        G
Oh that's ok, baby I'll just change my place
      C                  D
I've still got choice of 49 more States

       Em            C   G
Baby someday if you find me
       Em               C    G
If you're not too far behind me
       C/G        G                C/G     G
I'll change your plans like the (Southern land?)
 G                 D
You'll see what I saw
          C            D
I'll be shining like America
