It was([ch]C[/ch])where my mama sat on that old([ch]G[/ch])swing 

with her crochet([ch]Am[/ch]), It was([ch]F[/ch])where grandaddy 

taught([ch]C[/ch])me how to cuss and how to pray([ch]G[/ch]),

It was([ch]Am[/ch])where we made our own([ch]Em[/ch])ice cream

those([ch]F[/ch])sultry summer nights([ch]C[/ch]),

where the([ch]Dm[/ch])bulldog had her pup([ch]Em[/ch])pies,

and us([ch]F[/ch])brothers had our fights([ch]G[/ch]),

There were many nights I'd sit right there and look
out at the stars, to the sound of a distant wippoorwhill, 
or the hum of a passin' car, it was where I first got up 
the nerve to steal me my first kiss, and it was where
I learned to play guitar and pray I had the gift,


If the world([ch]C[/ch])had a front([ch]F[/ch])porch like([ch]G[/ch])we did back then([ch]Am[/ch]),

([ch]F[/ch])We'd still have our prob([ch]C[/ch])lems, ([ch]G[/ch])but we'd all be friends, 

([ch]Am[/ch])Treatin' your neighbor like he's([ch]F[/ch])your next of kin([ch]C[/ch])

([ch]F[/ch])wouldn't be gone([ch]C[/ch]), with the wind([ch]Am[/ch]),

if the world([ch]F[/ch])had a front([ch]C[/ch])porch 

like([ch]G[/ch])did back([ch]C[/ch])then.   ([ch]F[/ch]) ([ch]C[/ch]) ([ch]F[/ch])

Purple hulls and pintos, I've shelled more than my share,
lighting bugs and crickets, Danced in the evening air, 
and like a beacon that ole' yellow moon it always lead
me home, some how mama always knew,
just when to leave it on,

repeat chorus:

Treatin your neighbor like he's your next of kin wouldn't be gone
with the wind, if the world had a front porch, like we 
did back then.
