[Intro]
| G . . D* | C | G . . D* | C |

[Verse 1]
|G                     D*  |C        |
 . Haven't been wasted in a long time
|G                  D*   |C
 . . But tonight it feels just fine
 C/B   |Am
 Ridin' home with windows up
 |Em                        |D             |D
 Alone with a plastic cup of real good wine . . .

[Chorus 1]
           |G                    D*      |C
 When I get out of this hole I'm goin' to Tupelo
          |G                               |D
 There's a girl down there that'll treat me fair
            |G                      D*       |C              C/B
 Get about a week of spring and the summer is blistering . . .
      |Am                D                     |Em        Em7
 There ain't no one from here that'll follow me there . . .

[Verse 2]
|G                          D*     |C         |
 . She said there's nothin' left to talk about
|G                 D*       |C               C/B
 . And at my age I should've figured out . . .
      |Am
 Which drawer to put the good knives in
    |Em                           |D              | D |
 The war between weekends tore our playhouse down

[Verse 3]
|G                     D*     |C          |
 . Kept her close, and way too close to me
|G                    D*   |C
 . She never lived up to my memory
 C/B    |Am
 Drivin' fast with the windows down
  |Em                           |D       |D
 A past I don't belong to now, a mystery  . . .

[Chorus 2]
           |G                    D*      |C
 When I get out of this hole I'm goin' to Tupelo
          |G                               |D
 There's a girl down there that'll treat me fair
            |G                      D*       |C              C/B
 Get about a week of spring and the summer is blistering . . .
          |Am                D                     |Em        Em7
 So, there ain't no one from here that'll follow me there . . .
          |C                 D                     |G    |
 No, there ain't no one from here that'll follow me there

[Break]

[Chorus 3]
           |G <>                 D*      |C
 When I get out of this hole I'm goin' to Tupelo
          |G                               |D
 There's a girl down there that'll treat me fair
            |G                      D*       |C              C/B
 Get about a week of spring and the summer is blistering . . .
      |Am                D                     |Em        Em7
 There ain't no one from here that'll follow me there . . .
            |C                 D                     |G . . D* |
 Well, there ain't no one from here that'll follow me there

Charted by Dexex ... with thanks to kgemeinhart.

This chart owes a lot to the chart produced by kgemeinhart, who correctly
identified the D-chord in the 3rd line of the chorus. That chord, a C-chord
shape played up two frets, is the backbone of this song, and is used more
than kgemeinhart realized. That, along with lyric and chord tweaks, and
measure marks, is why I made a new chart.

Kgemeinhart identified the chord as "Dadd9add11." I've seen it more often
as "Dadd4add9" which I've shortened to D* to get you to look at the chord
diagram. If you research the chord, there is no consensus about what to call
it, and no symbol for "add". ("+" means "augmented.")

Just remember, it's a C-chord played up two frets to make it a D-chord.

That Dadd9add11 is a common chord for JI. Used in "Songs that She Sang in the Shower," for instance.

It's also likely, although I haven't looked into it on Youtube, and he didn't play Tupelo when I saw him recently, that he plays this in drop-D tuning. Then the D* chord would be 054030 and the Em7 would be 220000. Your Em7 (one finger) should be 020000 up above, by the way. G in drop-D would be 5x0003.
