Well I was rollin' wheels and shiftin gears 'round that Jersey Turnpike
E                                  A             B
Barney stopped me with his gun ten minutes after midnight
     E                               A         B

I  said where I come from It's cornbread and chicken
      E                   A           B
Where I come from a lotta front porch sittin'
      E           A                B
Where I come from tryin' to make a livin'
    D                      A                        E

   E                               A                B
To try their brand of barbecue the sign said finger-lickin'

Chorus:
            E                A             B

Where I come from tryin' to make a livin'
    D                      A                        E

     E                              A               B

*I think it sounds good if you play an A7 chord instead of an A chord in the chorus 
after you play a D chord.  Im not sure, but that might actually be the way they play it in 
song.
