One other version was close, but it didn't have all of the correct chord progressions.
Saw lots of live versions with John playing this on capo 4 and it sounds close to the record as well.

Standard Tuning

CAPO 4

[Intro]
G - D - Cadd9 - D x4

[Verse 1]
G           D          Cadd9     D
 Well I was born in a small town
G       D       Cadd9       D
 And I live in a small town
G       D       Cadd9
 Probably die in a small town
            Am            D
 Oh, those small communities

[Verse 2]
G       D              Cadd9           D
 All my friends are so small town
G            D          Cadd9                D
 My parents live in the same small town
G       D         Cadd9
 My job is so small town
           Am              D
 Provides little opportunity

 G - D - Cadd9 - D x2

[Verse 3]
G         D    Cadd9           D
 Educated in a small town
G                    D          Cadd9          D
 Taught the fear of Jesus in a small town
G           D      Cadd9
 Used to daydream in that small town
  Am                            D
 Another boring romantic that's me

[Verse 4]
          G       D        Cadd9       D
 But I've seen it all in a small town
G             D         Cadd9          D
 Had myself a ball in a small town
G           D                      Cadd9
 Married an L.A. doll and brought her to this small town
           Am                   D
 Now she's small town just like me

[Bridge]
      Cadd9       G        Cadd9               G
 No I cannot forget where it is that I come from
      Cadd9            G          D
 I cannot forget the people who love me
      Cadd9     G           Cadd9           G
 Yeah, I can be myself here in this small town
      Cadd9         G               D
 And people let me be just what I want to be

 G - D - Cadd9 - D x2

 Em |Em G|Cadd9 |G
 Em |Em G|D
 Em |Em G|Cadd9 |G
 D   D

 Finger pick for 2 bars
 Cadd9

[Verse 5] (strum or acapella)
G            D         Cadd9      D
 Got nothing against a big town
G                D            Cadd9                      D
 Still hayseed enough to say look who's in the big town
G       D           Cadd9
 But my bed is in a small town
               Am               D
 Oh, and that's good enough for me

[Verse 6]
G           D         Cadd9          D
 Well I was born in a small town
G          D            Cadd9        D
 And I can breathe in a small town
G      D           Cadd9
 Gonna die in this small town
           Am                        D
 And that's probably where they'll bury me

[Outro]
 G - D - Cadd9 - D x4 

(End back on G)
