Intro G C D G

G                   C        D      G
I grew up two hours north of Birmingham
G                       C            D       G
Me and my daddy used to fish next to Wilson Dam
G                      C          D       G
He told some stories, Camaros and J.W. Dant
     D                       C            D         G
When I got a little older, I wouldn't and now Daddy can't


Chorus
           C           D G
So I thank God for the TVA
      C           D G
Thank God for the TVA
      G                       C          D         G    G/F#  Em
Where me and my daddy used to bow to the river and pray
      C           D G
Thank God for the TVA

     G                   C        D          G
When I was 15, me and my girl sat out on the lock
 G                        C         D        G
Watchin' the raccoons and terrapins dance on rocks
 G                 C       D        G
She let me put my hand up under her shirt
   D                       C          D  G
I wanted her to want me so bad, it hurt


Chorus
           C           D G
So I thank God for the TVA
      C           D G
Thank God for the TVA
      G                       C             D           G    G/F#  Em
Where me and my baby used to lay around and wait on the day
      C           D G
Thank God for the TVA


Intro 3 Times, then D C D G

     G                     C           D       G
My granddaddy told me when he was just 7 or so 
    G                        C             D          G
His daddy lost work and they didn't have a row to hoe
    G                   C         D        G
Not too much to eat for 7 boys and 3 girls
   D                            C             D          G
All lived in a tent, a bunch of sharecroppers versus the world

       G                          C         D    G
So his momma sat down and wrote a letter to FDR
      G                               C           D         G
Then a couple days later, a couple of country men came in a car
       G                          C         D           G
Rolled out in the field, told his daddy to put down the plow
      D                            C             D          G
And he helped build the damn, gave power to most the South


Chorus
           C           D G
So I thank God for the TVA
      C           D G
Thank God for the TVA
      G                    C            D           G    G/F#  Em
Where Roosevelt let us all work for an honest day's pay
      C           D G
Thank God for the TVA
