Plowboy Chords

   This song is actually a true story of Ray and a doubting redneck.
The intro chords: Am7-G-D The Am7 is on the 1 (obviously)and the G on 3
                             and the D comes in slightly early on the
                             "and" before the next 1. (Upstroke)
                              Repeat twice before the verse entrance.

 the verses are sung in a talking style like Johnny Cash "boy named Sue".
        Am7                     G             D
  verse:  There's a lotta small towns in this world,
         Am7              G             D
          Just like the one that I came from.
        Am7                   G              D
          Where any dream you have is just a dream.
         Am7                          G           D
          It ain't nothin' that could truly be done.
         Am7                   G            D
          Well I'm gon' tell y'all a little story
         Am7              G           D
          'Bout the day I set out to leave.
        Am7                G                     D
          As I was loadin' up and sayin' my goodbyes
        Am7            G          D
          some redneck einstein said to me
         Am7               G                 D
          "Well I see ya' packed up your suitcase,
         Am7               G                  D
           And I seen ya' throw it in the truck.
         Am7                   G            D
           Headin' off to the big town are ya?
         Am7           G                 D
           Hmmph! Well son I wish ya' luck.
        Am7             G                    D
          Now I don't mean to bust your bubble...
        Am7             G                   D
          But boy, the way your thinkins' wrong.
        Am7              G                  D
          Go on out and chase that foolish dream of yours.  Heh!
         Am7          G               D
           You'll be back before too long.
