Verse 1:
           E                                 A                 B
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
Said sir you broke the limit in that rusty ol' truck
       A                               B     n/C
I dont know about that accent son just where did you come from?

Chorus:
              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
And workin' hard to get to heaven where I come from.

Verse 2:
           E                              A               B
Well I was south of Detroit City I pulled in this country kitchen
   E                               A                B
To try their brand of barbecue the sign said finger-lickin'
       E                                  A                 B
Well I paid the tab and the lady asked me how'd you like my biscuit
        A                        B     n/C
I'll be honest with you ma'am It ain't like mama fixed it.


Chorus:
            E                A             B
Cause where I come from it's cornbread and chicken
      E                   A           B
Where I come from a lotta front porch pickin'
      E           A                B
Where I come from tryin' to make a livin'
    D                      A                        E
And workin' hard to get to heaven where I come from.

I was chasin' sun on 101 somewhere around Ventura
  E                            A             B
I lost a universal joint and I had to use my finger
     E                              A               B
This tall lady stopped and asked if I had plans for dinner
     A                                      B     n/C
Said no thanks ma'am, back home we like the girls that sing soprano.

Chorus:
            E                A             B
Cause 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
The CB rang for the bobtail rig that's rollin on like thunder
     E                                     A               B
Well I answered him and he asked me aren't you from out in Tulsa
A                                        B       n/C

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.
