Subject: TAB:  Don't It Make You Want to Go Home by Joe South (CRD file)

Another fine Joe South song circa 1969.

                   Don't It Make You Want to Go Home
                               (Joe South)

 G              Am             D             G
 /  /  /  /     /  /  /  /     /  /  /  /    /  /  /  /   [2X] (see note)


(chorus first):
          G                            Am
          Don't it make you want to go home now
          D                             G
          Don't it make you want to go home
                                  Am
          All God's children get weary when they roam
          D                             G
          Don't it make you want to go home
          D                             G
          Don't it make you want to go home

(verse 1):
                  G                          Am
          Oh the whippoorwill roosts on the telephone pole
                 D                 G
          as the Georgia sun goes down
                                             Am
          Well it's been a long time but I'm glad to say that I'm
                 D                    G
          goin' back down to my home town
                                       Am
          Goin' down to the Greyhound station
                 D                G
          Gonna buy me a one way fare
                                    Am
          Good lord willin' and the creeks don't rise
               D                     G
          By tomorrow I'll be right there

(chorus)

(verse 2):
          But there's a six-lane highway down by the creek
          Where I went skinny dippin' as a child
          And a drive-in show where the meadow used to grow
          And the strawberries used to grow wild
          There's a drag strip down by the riverside
          Where my grandma's cow used to graze
          Now the grass don't grow and the river don't flow
          Like it did in my childhood days

(chorus - lead off last line with "Tell me")

(chorus, up 1 step, and drop 5th line):
          A                            Bm
          Don't it make you want to go home now
          E                             A
          Don't it make you want to go home
                                   Bm
          All God's children get weary when they roam and
          E                     A
          God how I want to go home

(repeat 4-line chorus, fading)

-----------------------------------------------------------
note:  The intro has strings and finger-picked guitar which
follows this line:
