Jim Henry - One-Horse Town



[Intro]
C  D    G  C  D    G  C  D

[Verse 1]
       G               D
He was leaving home on Saturday
       Em                         C
So the whole town gathered at the picket gate
   G                          D        C    G      C  D
To wave him off 'cause he was New York City bound 
    G                D
His Mama cried as he pulled away
    Em              C
His Daddy smiled as if to say
            G                    D           C         G
"You're the last of three to get out of this one-horse town" 


[Interlude]
C  D    G  C  D


[Verse 2]
         G                      D
Then the wind picked up and the rain came down
    Em                       C
And everybody headed for the center of town
                G             D       C      G    C  D
Where there was cold beer and stories at the bar 
       G                D
But we forgot about the pouring rain
  Em                      C
Before too long there was music playing
    G                  D               C        G 
The Mama and the Daddy danced 'til the pain was gone


[Chorus]
                  C                 G 
They're living it up in a one-horse town
              D                          G 
A peck on the cheek when there's no one around
                  C                   Em
The squeak of the door at the general store
                 D
And an old man's smile
                 C                 G 
The kids want to leave this life behind
             D                       Em
Discover the world beyond the county line
                    C
But they got a good start
                  D                    G     C  D
Straight from the heart of a one-horse town


[Verse 3]
       G                      D
On the summer nights when the wind won't blow
    Em                 C
The Daddy tunes in the radio
   G               D         C         G     C  D
To cities close to where the kids have gone 
G                  D
Jennifer's warm in Santa Fe
Em                   C
Jesse's all clear in Portland, Maine
    G                 D          C       G
But Jimmy in New York City can't see the stars


[Chorus]
                  C                 G 
They're living it up in a one-horse town
              D                          G 
A peck on the cheek when there's no one around
                  C                   Em
The squeak of the door at the general store
                 D
And an old man's smile
                 C                 G 
The kids want to leave this life behind
             D                       Em
Discover the world beyond the county line
                    C
But they got a good start
                  D                    G     C  D
Straight from the heart of a one-horse town


[Verse 4]
    G                   D
One day the Daddy got a big surprise
    Em                              C
The Mama held him close, looked him right in the eye
              G                           D            C      G     C  D
Said, "It's a long, long time since we've been in this house alone
   G                    D
We spent our lives with kids to raise
    Em                        C
But now that they're gone and on their way
             G                  D            C         G  
It's you and me, we're still in love in this one-horse town"


[Chorus]
                  C                 G 
They're living it up in a one-horse town
              D                          G 
A peck on the cheek when there's no one around
                  C                   Em
The squeak of the door at the general store
                 D
And an old man's smile
                 C                 G 
The kids want to leave this life behind
             D                       Em
Discover the world beyond the county line
                    C
But they got a good start
                  D                    G
Straight from the heart of a one-horse town
                    C
But they got a good start
                  D                    C     G
Straight from the heart of a one-horse town
