Intro

G-C-D

Verse 1
     C                                 G
On a three hour flight from Memphis to LA
   C                                     G
I was silently celebrating my first class upgrade
D              C           G
Laughing at my jeans and my boots
             C                           D
Beside those high dollar shoes and Armani suits

Verse 2
       C                                                  G
When the gentlemen next to me said the drinks up here are free
    C                                  G
So if you like, the first one can be on me
D                              C                      G
He said I'm heading back from business in New York and Rome
       C                       D
Tell me son, where do you call home?

Chorus 1
                   G               C
I said I'm from the front pew of a wooden white church
G                      C
A courthouse clock that still don't work
G                 Em              D
Where a man's word means everything
G                       C
Where moms and dads were high school flings
G                                   C
And gave their children grandmothers maiden names
G                        D
Yes it may not sound like much
D                   G   D
But it's where I'm from

Verse 3
C                                G
So we drank that round, and then another
C                                            G
There wasnt a topic in this world we did not cover
D                         C                G
He said I headed out west when I was barely nineteen
C                     D
Just a kid chasing my dreams

Verse 4
C                                               G
And I said Im flying out here to pick up my big brother
C                                 G
Hes been fighting the cancer they discovered
D                   C                G
But he called last night and said I think this is the end
               C                       D
So come take me home to my family and my friends

Chorus 2
G                             C
Where the quarterback dates the homecoming queen
G                       C
The truck's a ford and the tractor's green
G                    Em         DC
And amazing grace is what we sing
G                    C
Theres a county fair every fall
G                                   C
And your friends are there no matter when you call
G                     D
It may not sound like much
D                  G   D
But it's where I'm from

Verse 5
Em 
And as we stood to claim the bags we checked
D
He said I'll pray for your brother and did I mention that
G                    C
Italian suits havent always been my style
Em
See I was the quarterback of my high school team
D
We took state back in sixty three
C                                     D
And my wife, shes still my homecoming queen

Chorus 3
G                              C
Cuz Im from the front pew of a wooden white church
G                     C
A courthouse clock that still dont work
G                  Em             C
Where a man's word means everything
G                                     C
Where moms and dads were high school flings
G                                  C
And gave their children grandmothers maiden names
G                         D
Yes it may not sound like much
C                            D
I said it may not sound like much 
D                  G   C
But it's where I'm from
D              G   C
It's where I'm from
D              G   CD
It's where I'm from

in the chorus, at the last line...a "C" should be played in between the "G" and the "D" chords.
