Artist: Gretchen Wilson
Song: Pocahontas Proud
Submitted by: debeck

Intro: D

Verse 1: 
D
I was raised in Pocahontas Illinois
Everybody thought of me as on of the boys
          A            G          D
Cause Iíd run with the crowd that tough

Verse 2:
D
At 15 I was tendiní big Oís bar
And Iíd sing till 2am for a half-full tip jar
           A            G               D
Spent my youth singin truth and payin dues

Chorus:

A                          G              D
Iím the biggest thing that ever came from my home town
A                  G            D
And Iíll be damned if Iím gonna let Ďem down
A                             G                                             
If itís the last thing that I do 
            D   A  G  D   A
Before they lay me in the ground
                                   D
You know Iím gonna make Pocahontas proud

V:
D
And I knocked on every door on music row
They looked down to me and said,                                                
                            A           G
ďGirl go back home you aint got what we need 
        D
In this town"

(Key Change)
E
They couldnít whoop the fightiní side of me
                            N.C.           B
Where I come from we donít give up easily over night
            A          E
Took all my life to be found

Chorus:
B                          A              E
Iím the biggest thing that ever came from my home town
B                  A            E
And Iíll be damned if Iím gonna let Ďem down
B                             A              
If itís the last thing that I do 
            E   B  A  E   B                                            
Before they lay me in the ground
                                   E    E-B
You know Iím gonna make Pocahontas proud

Break: E-A E-B

E
At 27 I had baby Grace
I was born again when I saw her sweet face
      B                 A
And I knew, she was the greatest
               E
Thing Iíd ever do

Repeat Chorus 2x:

Break: E

E                          A
I was raised in Pocahontas Illinois
