[Intro]

D G D G D G D A G D 


[Verse]

G                D                   
Born the middle son of a farmer
A                 D
And a small town Southern man
G                 D
Like his daddy's daddy before him
A                 
Brought up workin' on the land
G                   D                            
Fell in love with a small town woman
A                        D
And they married up and settled down
G                    D
Natural way of life if you're lucky
A                    G        D
For a small town Southern man

G                       D
First there came four pretty daughters
  A                     D
For this small town Southern man
G                         D
Then a few years later came another
A              
A boy, he wasn't planned
G                    D
Seven people livin' all together
A                           D
In a house built with his own hands
G                       D
Little words with love and understandin'
A                 G        D
From a small town Southern man


[Chorus]

G                       D
And he bowed his head to Jesus
G                        D
And he stood for Uncle Sam
    G                    D   
And he only loved one woman
        A       
He) was always proud of what he had
          G                       D     
He said his greatest contribution
  G                  D
Is the ones you leave behind
  G                  D   
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
   A         G          D
Of a small town Southern man

G D A G D


[Verse]

 G                  D
Callous hands told the story
   A                     D
For this small town Southern man
  G                        D                
He gave it all to keep it all together
  A                     
And keep his family on his land
G                           D
Like his daddy, years wore out his body
  A                           D
Made it hard just to walk and stand
G                
You can break the back
  D                
But you can't break the spirit
A        G             D
Of a small town Southern man


[Chorus]

G                       D
And he bowed his head to Jesus
G                        D
And he stood for Uncle Sam
    G                    D   
And he only loved one woman
        A       
He) was always proud of what he had
          G                       D     
He said his greatest contribution
  G                  D
Is the ones you leave behind
  G                  D   
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
   A         G          D
Of a small town Southern man

G D G D G D A G D 


[Verse]

  G                D
Finally death came callin'
A                       D
For this small town Southern man
  G                          D
He said it's alright 'cause I see angels
A
And they got me by the hand
G                   D
Don't you cry, and don't you worry
A                  D       
I'm blessed, and I know I am
   G                 D
'Cause God has a place in Heaven
    A          G          D
For a small town Southern man


[Chorus]

G                       D
And he bowed his head to Jesus
G                        D
And he stood for Uncle Sam
    G                    D   
And he only loved one woman
        A       
He) was always proud of what he had
          G                       D     
He said his greatest contribution
  G                  D
Is the ones you leave behind
  G                  D   
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
   A         G          D
Of a small town Southern man

 G                  D   
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
   A         G          D
Of a small town Southern man
