D            C x32033        G 320033    D
  When I was 15 I dreamed of leaving my home 
  D               C
I had to see the world 
     G                    D
And live like a rolling stone 
D        C               G        D
 I heard California was paved in gold 
     Em        
So I hopped on that train 
G
  It didn't come easy 
   Em
But I keep thinkin' bout 
    Bb              C           D
The green grass and missing my home 

Chorus:
D        C          G         D
 Take me back to my southern ways 
D                   C        G           C
  Where I can be myself and live another day 
D          C        G         D
  Take me back to my southern ways 
           Bb                      C                      D        
Where the tall pines blow and the southern winds kiss my face 

Intro Riff 2x
D                   C G D
  Oh southern grace 

D            C     G       D
  Me and my boys started a band 
 D             C       G       D
Practiced everyday out on the Hell House land 
D                   C        G       D
Played every honky tonk and this ol' bar
   Em
To sing about Sweet 'Bama 
G
  We were just simple men 
     Em
The music is forever
         Bb               C
and the songs will never ever end 

Chorus:
D        C          G         D
 Take me back to my southern ways 
D                   C        G           C
  Where I can be myself and live another day 
D          C          G        D
  Take me back to my southern ways 
           Bb                      C
Where the tall pines blow and the southern winds kiss my face 

Piano Solo: DCGD

D            C         G          D
 I sit here thinkin' about those days 
    D                  C             G      D
 I wouldn't change a thing about my life today 
D          C         G         D
 Ain't it funny how time sure flies 
       Bb                    C
'Cause all I ever wanted and all I ever needed 
     D
WAS YOU 

Chorus:
D        C          G         D
 Take me back to my southern ways 
D                   C        G           C
  Where I can be myself and live another day 
D          C          G        D
  Take me back to my southern ways 
               Bb                              C
Where the tall pines blow and the Saint John's flows, 
           Bb/D
 and only God - he                       Intro theme
                  C/E                    D     C    G    D  
knows, and those southern winds kiss my face 

D        C          G         D
Take me back to my southern ways
