This is a song by John Gorka off of his "Jack's Crows" album.

I'm From New Jersey
there is one chord in here that i think is a B something, i haven't been
playing for very long so i don't know what it is, i just know that it sounds
right.  when it comes up i'll indicate it w/ an asterisk (*).

 * = x20032

the progeression for the main verses is this:
D * D G A
and the  progression for the bridge is :
C Bm A G Bm A
and then back into the verses.
so it is something like this.
D * D G A


Im from New Jersey.

I don't expect too much.

If the world ended today, I would adjust.


I'm from New Jersey, no I don't talk that way
I watched too much TV when I was young

I'm from New Jersey. My mom's Italian.
We've read those mafia books, we don't belong.
and the bridge would be

    There are girls from New Jersey

                                  Bm                             A
    Who have that         great big hair

    They're found in shopping malls

             Bm                                  A
    I will        Take you there

(repeat intro)

Im from New Jersey. It's not like Texas.
There is no mystery, I can't pretend.

I'm from New Jersey, it's like Ohio,
But even more so. Imagine that.

(bridge #2)

I know which exit, and where I'm bound,
Tolls on the Parkway they will slow you down.

(back to main chords)

New Jersey people, they will surprise you,
Cause they're not expected to do too much.

They will try harder, they may go further,
They never think that they are good enough.

I'm from New Jersey, I don't expect too much.
If the world ended today I would adjust.

I would adjust

G A                      D
I   would  adjust

as for this song, i have to give credit to my friend neil who figured it
out. then he taught it to me. this was the first song i learned how to play.
