Tune 1 whole step down
Capo 5

Intro (x1)
C	F	C 	C	F	C

Am	F	C	F	G	C

Verse 1:
She was fresh out of college
The first one in her family to go
Am		F	C
and California seemed like heaven,
F		G		C
Pulaski, Tennessee was her home

Repeat Intro

Verse 2:
C		F		C
She worked on losing her southern accent
C		               F	C
and turned her back on her Baptist ways
Am		F		C
She bought some clothes that barely
C			F	
covered her fair skinned body,
G			C
Went to Nashville and caught a plane
F			C
Well the clouds rushed beneath her 
Am			G
as the LA smog filled the air
F			C	Am
And she smiled when the airlock opened
F		G		C		
The Pacific breeze blew through her hair

Repeat Intro

Verse 3:
C		F		C
She thought about the boys from Alabama
C		F		C
Who came into town every Friday night
Am		F			C
and drank beer out of big glass quart bottles
F		G		C
and left their trail of blood and tears behind
F				C
She thought the men in California would be different
Am			G
She'd grown up watching them on her TV
F			C	Am
But the men she came to know in California
F		G		C
Left her longing for Pulaski, Tennessee

Repeat Intro

Am				G
Good ideas always start with a full glass
F		C			G
and just breathing here can make a girl's nose bleed
F		C			Am
Dreams here live and die just like a stray dog on a 
F		G		C
dirt road somewhere in Tennessee

Verse 4:
C	F		C
The storefronts all filled up with eyeballs
C	F		C
As the policemen clear out the street
Am		                 F		C
For a line of cars with their headlights burning
F		       G		       C
Driving slow through Pulaski, Tennessee 

Repeat Intro
