SONG:   BIG DAY IN A SMALL TOWN
ARTIST: BRANDY CLARK
TAB BY: DON CZARSKI
EMAIL:  GUITARZAN7@HOTMAIL.COM


NOTE: Two guitars play this song. 
      Brandy Clark uses a capo on the 4th fret.
      The guy playing the main riff uses a capo
      on the 2nd fret. I have included versions
      below of the guitar without a capo and
      capoed at the 4th fret.


                BIG DAY IN A SMALL TOWN
                     BRANDY CLARK

VERSE:
 B
Mama got a call from the principal's office

Better get down here fast

'Cause Mindy passed out when her water broke

In the middle of geometry class
     E                                    
Her mama didn't know she was nine months late
                                        B
Been getting on her about gaining weight

And now she's a grandma


BREAK:
 B              F#
Somebody had a baby
                 E
Somebody had a breakdown
             F#
Aaah, it's a big day
       B
In a small town


VERSE:
        B
Well, Eddie Smith swore he wouldn't miss one more 

Of Junior's football games

Got his twelve pack of Bud and his Friday night buzz

Heading south in the north bound lane
 E
Juniors in the endzone half back pitch
                                       B
Willie's sitting upside down in a ditch

And the crowd goes wild


BREAK:
                    F#
Somebody wrecked a pick up
                   E
Somebody scored a touchdown
              F#     
Aaah, it's a big day 
       B
In a small town


CHORUS:
  B
There ain't no mall

No waffle house

But there's always something to talk about 
        E
Around here


Somebody shot a deer
                    B
Somebody's getting married 

Or buried

Or carried away

              F#
The sun comes up
                  E
And the sun goes down
              F#     
Aaah, it's a big day
       B
In a small town


VERSE:
 B
Women go around about a Methodist man

And a jail bait check out queen

His wife caught wind of unspeakable sin

Going down on aisle thirteen
     E
She left all the chicken in the frying pan
                                       B
And threw all the kids in a grand caravan

With a baseball bat


BREAK:
                  F#
Somebody went to Wal-mart
                  E
In nothing but a night gown
             F#      
Aaah, it's a big day
       B
In a small town


CHORUS:
  B
There ain't no mall

No waffle house

But there's always something to talk about 
        E
Around here


Somebody shot a deer
                    B
Somebody's getting married 

Or buried

Or carried away

              F#
The sun comes up 
                  E
And the sun goes down 
              F#
Aaah, it's a big day
            B
Hey, in a small town
