Ain't What It Used to Be - Billy Currington
Album: Billy Currington
Writers: Martin/Nesler

Capo: 2nd fret

Intro: G  Am  C  G (2x)

  G                    Am
That backward town, in my rearview
  C                    G
Was gonna be my whole world
  G                      Am
Til my factory job, got shipped to Mexico
  C                           G
And a city boy stole my sweet girl

  G                      Am
I used to know everybody by name
  C                  G
Everybody's moved away
  G                          Am
Can't say that I'm really wantin' to go
         C                     G
But I've run out of reasons to stay

            G   D   Am       C
This ain't nothin' like what I, 
Am    D             G
    had in mind for me
      G    D   Am  C
Then again my future,
Am           D            G
   Ain't what it used to be

          G                          Am
Well I thought like my dad, and his daddy before
     C                        G
That I would die where I was born
         G                   Am
Live a smalltown dream in a big backyard
C                     G
  Raisin' babies and corn

      G             Am
Now here I am, one eye on the road
   C                           G
Tryin' to read the map on the dash
   G                    Am
Nowhere close to making up my mind
        C                        G
With a fork in the road comin' fast

(chorus 2x)

        G (one strum)   Am (one strum)
That backward town, in my rear view
 (pick) C  D            G
Was gonna be my whole world

Outro: G  Am  C  G (play to fade)
