Lori McKenna - Giving Up On Your Hometown


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
G   Am   G   Am

[Verse 1]
        G                                      Am
Well, I don't know where the cool kids hang on Friday night
        G                            Am
Used to park our parent's car by the billboard sign
     C                                 G
They tore it down years ago to build a small high-rise
      C                                       Em         D
It's abandoned now and it's been that way for quite some time


[Verse 2]
   G                                        Am
It don't make sense, but the cheap motel is always open
      G                                              Am
Seems like we're sitting in a hand-basket, wondering where it's going
          C                                       G
There's a freshwater shark in a small fish tank behind the counter
C                                             Em          D
Door's always locked and you gotta pre-pay in cash by the hour


[Chorus]
    C                               Em     D
The sunsets still look the way they always do
C                          Em              D                C
Over the backyard trees my grandma used to sit under in the afternoon
                                  Em      D 
And you can't keep everything the way you want it
Am                                     C
Feels like even the ghosts are getting out
                      G     Am   G   Am
Giving up on your hometown


[Verse 3]
      G                            Am
Every single Sunday, 10am, we were in that pew
      G                                       Am
I was married there and baptized there and my kids were too
   C                                  G
My mother sang in the women's choir before she died
        C                                  Em                          D
And the day they sold that church even the statue of Mother Mary cried


[Chorus]
    C                               Em     D
The sunsets still look the way they always do
C                          Em              D                C
Over the backyard trees my grandma used to sit under in the afternoon
                                  Em      D 
And you can't keep everything the way you want it
Am                                     C
Feels like even the ghosts are getting out
                      G     Am
Giving up on your hometown
                      G     Am
Giving up on your hometown


[Bridge]
    C                                Am
And every kid that's left, just kept going
    G                            D
And every debt we didn't pay, we just keep owing
      G                                   Am
Never visit your daddy's grave, but we go by the house
        G                                          Am
He'd be working on a car in the driveway if he was with us now
         C                                       G
And that porch swing you built for your mama, is all but gone
        C                                  Em                G       D
I guess even when you stay right here, sometimes you can't go home


[Outro]
                      G      Am
Giving up on your hometown
                      G      Am
Giving up on your hometown
                      G      Am   G   Am
Giving up on your hometown
