[Intro]

C Em F G C Em F G


[Verse]

       C      Em        
It was '96 in South Carolina
           F                         G
That's the place and not the goddamn year
C                           Em
Sittin' on the porch out at Bobby's place
     F                     G
Just tuggin' on a Lukewarm beer


[Pre-Chorus]

   F                             Dm
And there I was peepin' like an old sidewinder
        F                    Dm
Just an inch or so above the mud
   Am                      F
The first to find out that it's rainin'
       C                       G
Is the last to find out it's a flood


[Verse]

          C                   Em
And it was paradise valley Nevada
    F                           G
Not far from where the west was won
         C                      Em
I am the only black face in the whole damn place
       F                      G
Just a raisin' in the blazing sun


[Pre-Chorus]

   F                     Dm
And there I am like that old sidewinder
     F                           Dm
Just wishin' that her eggs ain't hatched
    Am                       F
And the chain I wear has 'em wishin' for the day
     C                   G
When it came with a ball attached


[Chorus]

              C   Em                   F
So I'm gonna move,   right outta this town
G      C        Em                  F
  This old skin, stops weighing me down
G
 This old skin


[Bridge]

       F                        Dm
He was sittin' in the very same spot that Otis
C                          Am
Sat to watch the dock of the bay
      Bb                       Dm 
In the very same spot, that the ships rolled in
           G
Now there's nothin' but the mud and the clay


[Chorus]

           C    Em                  F
I'm gonna move,   right outta this town
G      C        Em                 F
 This old skin     is weighing me down
G
 This old skin


[Instrumental]

C Em F G


[Verse]

C                      Em
Outside Orlando in the sunshine state
   F                          G
Has just upped itself another degree
         C                       Em
I am the very last orange of the whole year's crop
  F                                 G
Hangin' dearly to the branch of the tree


[Pre Chorus]

     F                               Dm
And the wind and the spring couldn't do anything
      F                      Dm
So I'm burnin' in the sun of the south
Am                         F
That old sidewinder in the dust below
        C                          G
I'm just waiting till it opens its mouth


[Chorus]

             C    Em                   F
So I'm gonna move,   right outta this town
G           C       Em                     F
 When this old skin,  finally touches the ground
G
 This old skin


[Bridge]

       F                        Dm
He was sittin' in the very same spot that Otis
C                          Am
Sat to watch the dock of the bay
      Bb                       Dm 
In the very same spot, that the ships rolled in
           G
Now there's nothin' but the mud and the clay


[Chorus]

               C    Em                   F 
Now, I'm gonna move,   right outta this town
G           C       Em                      F     G
 When this old skin,   finally touches the ground
     C       Em       F        G
This old skin    This old skin
     C    Em  F  G         C
This old skin      This old skin
