                      "All I Can Do Is Write About It"

                written by Ronny Van Zant and Allen Collins

(G)

G D C (spoken "2-3-4")
G D Em C, G D C

          G              D
Well this life that I've lived
    Em           C
Has took me everywhere
G                    D             C
There ain't no place I ain't never gone

         G              D
But it's kinda like the sayin
         Em            C
That you heard so many times
           G          D             C
Well there just ain't no place like home

G D C
        G          D         Em          C
Did you ever see a she-gator protect her youngins
       G         D            C
Or the fish in a river swiwin free
        G            D             Em            C
Did you ever see the beauty of the hills of Carolina
       G                D        C
Or the sweetness of the grass in Tennesee

    G            D        C
And lord I can't make any changes
G               D              C
All I can do is write 'em in a song
G                D           Em     C
Cus I can see the concrete a slowly creepin
G                D              C
Lord take me and mine before that comes

G D C
G D C

G               D                 C
Like to see the mountain stream a flowing
Do you like to see a youngin with his dog
G                     D                Em             C
Did you ever stop and think about well the air you're breathing
G                      D     C
Well you better listen to my song

And lord I can't make any changes
All I can do is write 'em in a song
Cus I can see the concrete a slowly creepin
Lord take me and mine before it comes

(key change to A for piano solo)
A E D (played 4x)
(back to G)

G                D               C
I'm not tryin to put down no big city
But the things they write about us is just a bore
G                  D         Em      C
You can take a boy out of old Dixieland
G                     D            C
But you'll never take Dixie from a boy

G                D        C
And lord I can't make any changes
All I can do is write 'em in a song
G                 D          Em     C
Cus I can see the concrete a slowly creepin
G                D                C
Lord take me and mine before that comes  

         G             D          Am     C
Yes well I can see the concrete a slowly creeping
G                D                C
Lord take me and mine before that comes.
