Southern Ways Chords
(EADGBe)


Intro
(D\C\G\D)

D          C               G        D
When I was 15 I dreamed of leaving my home 
D                C
I had to see the world 
     G                 D
And live like a rolling stone 
D         C            G         D
I heard California was paved in gold 
E        
So I hopped on that train 
G
It didn't come easy 
E
But I keep thinkin' bout 
Bb                 C           D
The green grass and missing my home 

D       C          G         D
Take me back to my southern ways 
D              C          G      C
Where I can be myself and live another day 
D       C          G         D
Take me back to my southern ways 
Bb                             C                           D   C G D
Where the tall pines blow and the southern winds kiss my face 
D                 C G D
Oh southern grace 

Me and my boys started a band 
Practiced everyday out on the Hell House land 
Played every honky tonk and this ol' bar 
To sing about Sweet 'Bama 
We were just simple men 
The music is forever 
and the songs will never ever end 

Take me back to my southern ways 
Where I can be myself and live another day 
Take me back to my southern ways 
Where the tall pines blow and the southern winds kiss my face 

Oh take me back! 

I sit here thinkin' about those days 
I wouldn't change a thing about my life today 
Ain't it funny how time sure flies 
'Cause all I ever wanted and all I ever needed 
WAS YOU 

Take me back to my southern ways 
Where I can be myself and live another day 
Take me back to my southern ways 
Where the tall pines blow and the St. John's flows, and only God - he 

knows, and those southern winds kiss my face

About the artist behind Southern Ways Chords:

Lynyrd Skynyrd (pronounced /ˌlɛnɚdˈskɪnɝd/,Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd) is an American Southern rock band. The band became prominent in the Southern United States in 1973, and rose to worldwide recognition before several members, including lead vocalist and primary songwriter Ronnie Van Zant, were killed in a plane crash in 1977 near McComb, Mississippi. A tribute band was formed in 1987 for a reunion tour with Johnny Van Zant, Ronnie's younger brother, at the helm, and continues to record music today.

The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 13, 2006, with members Gary Rossington and Billy Powell, former members Ed King, Bob Burns, and Artimus Pyle, and deceased members Ronnie Van Zant, Allen Collins, Steve Gaines, and Leon Wilkeson.
