By Bill Rice
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

I grew up in a white house, more long than it was wide
Daddy worked the graveyard and my momma, 9-5
     A                                       E
Took care of my little sister, we barely got by
         B                               A              B             E 
That was cool with me back then, man you know that it's hot up here tonight

Dad bought me my first guitar when I was 12 years old
Gave me the Mel Bay chord book and a tape of rock and roll
I'd sit there in my bedroom late at night and bang away
So many times I'd fall asleep and let my mind take me away

        B                             A                  E
I was a rockstar with a big car, more money than I could spend
        B                             A               E
All the girls on the front row yellin play that song again
        C#m                           A
I had a girlfriend and a wife, little baby, a big life
F#m                             B                    E
You know man sometimes I had it tough, then I'd wake up

It's sure been a long time, I miss that old white house
Come thirty years, I'm headed north, my Daddy headed south
And me I'm down in Texas, playin songs for all my friends
Late at night in my motel room I fall asleep and I go home again



Granddad never got to see me pick and play this thing
After a million prayers, one good friend, I can feel em thru these strings
I know he's up in heaven just smilin down on me
Well I remember as a kid sittin on his knee when he told me I'd be
