[Verse 1]
E                  B7     
Back in the 19th century on southern US land
E                  B7    
They built a simple kind of house, and many still do stand
E                  B7    
The people called them 'shotgun house', from the African word "to-gun"
E                  B7                                   G    D
Just three or four rooms back-to-back, and I'm-a get me one, son.

[Chorus]
G             B7                     E             E7
When I get my shotgun house, you can visit all the time
A7                          D                G    F#    D       DM
I will move from back porch to front room by walking a straight line
G             B7                     E             E7
Oh, when I buy my shotgun house that will be something fine
A7                          D                G    F#    D       DM
I will finally have a place I can call mine

[Verse 2]
E                  B7    
Now, yes, I am an English man - from Oxford, if you please
E                  B7     
But when it comes to settling down, I may look overseas
E                  B7      
For I have travelled far and wide, to places foul and fair
E                  B7                        G      D
But I have loved America since I was married there, yeah

[Chorus]
G             B7                     E             E7
When I get my shotgun house, you can visit all the time
A7                          D                G    F#    D       DM
I will move from back porch to front room by walking a straight line
G             B7                          E        E7
Oh now, just to own a shotgun house would be a splendid thing
A7                          D                G    F#    D       DM
I will sing the way my daddy used to sing

On the banks M-I, double S-I, double S-I, P-P-I
