[D] As we sat on the front porch of that
[G] Old gray house where I was born and [D] raised
[Bm] Starin' at the dusty field
[G] Where my daddy worked hard every [D] day
I [Bm] think it kinda hurt him when I said
[G] Daddy there's a lot that I don't [D] know
But [Bm] don't you ever dream about a [G] life
Where corn don't [D] grow.

He just sat there silent',
Starin' at his favorite coffee cup
I saw a storm of mixed emotions
In his eyes when he looked up
He said son at you age I know it seems
Like this old world is turning slow
And you think you'll find the answer to it all
Where corn don't grow.

[D] Hard times are [Bm] real
There's dusty [G] fields
No matter where you [D] go
And you may change your [Bm] mind
'Cause the weeds are [G] high
Where corn don't [D] grow.

I remember feelin' guilty
When daddy walked back in the house
I was only seventeen back then
But I thought that I knew more than I know now
I can't say he didn't warn me
City life's a hard row to hoe
Ain't it funny how a dream can turn around
Where corn don't grow.


You may change your mind
Oh, the weeds are high
Where corn don't grow.

Also, the progression during the break/solo is the same as the refrain. (Try playing this with a partial capo leaving the low E open to simulate Drop D tunig.) ;)

I guess with my vocals it's without a capo. I'll try it though. This is my first upload. It's hard to take the subtle playing from my fingers and add it here. Thanks for the comments though. I'm going to try them both
