[Intro]

D G D G D G D A G D 


[Verse]

G                D                   
Born the middle son of a farmer
A                 D
And a small town Southern man
G                 D
Like his daddy's daddy before him
A                 
Brought up workin' on the land
G                   D                            
Fell in love with a small town woman
A                        D
And they married up and settled down
G                    D
Natural way of life if you're lucky
A                    G        D
For a small town Southern man

G                       D
First there came four pretty daughters
  A                     D
For this small town Southern man
G                         D
Then a few years later came another
A              
A boy, he wasn't planned
G                    D
Seven people livin' all together
A                           D
In a house built with his own hands
G                       D
Little words with love and understandin'
A                 G        D
From a small town Southern man


[Chorus]

G                       D
And he bowed his head to Jesus
G                        D
And he stood for Uncle Sam
    G                    D   
And he only loved one woman
        A       
He) was always proud of what he had
          G                       D     
He said his greatest contribution
  G                  D
Is the ones you leave behind
  G                  D   
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
   A         G          D
Of a small town Southern man

[Verse]

 G                  D
Callous hands told the story
   A                     D
For this small town Southern man
  G                        D                
He gave it all to keep it all together
  A                     
And keep his family on his land
G                           D
Like his daddy, years wore out his body
  A                           D
Made it hard just to walk and stand
G                
You can break the back
  D                
But you can't break the spirit
A        G             D
Of a small town Southern man


[Chorus]

G                       D
And he bowed his head to Jesus
G                        D
And he stood for Uncle Sam
    G                    D   
And he only loved one woman
        A       
He) was always proud of what he had
          G                       D     
He said his greatest contribution
  G                  D
Is the ones you leave behind
  G                  D   
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
   A         G          D
Of a small town Southern man

[Verse]

  G                D
Finally death came callin'
A                       D
For this small town Southern man
  G                          D
He said it's alright 'cause I see angels
A
And they got me by the hand
G                   D
Don't you cry, and don't you worry
A                  D       
I'm blessed, and I know I am
   G                 D
'Cause God has a place in Heaven
    A          G          D
For a small town Southern man


[Chorus]

G                       D
And he bowed his head to Jesus
G                        D
And he stood for Uncle Sam
    G                    D   
And he only loved one woman
        A       
He) was always proud of what he had

Is the ones you leave behind

Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
   A         G          D
Of a small town Southern man

 G                  D   
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness

About the artist behind Small Town Southern Man:

Alan Eugene Jackson (born 17 October 1958 in Newnan, Georgia) is an American country singer-songwriter who has sold over 40 million records. He was influenced by the new traditional country of the 1980s, and he was one of the most popular country singers of the 1990s, blending both honky tonk and mainstream country sounds and penning many of his own hits. His success continued into the 2000s and his music became increasingly counterposed with that of more mainstream country acts that were moving toward a more pop music sound. He is the recipient and nominee of multiple awards. He was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in 2001.
