Capo 1:
Tabbed by: tvaughan at

This is how the lead part is played I'll try to get that tabbed soon, 
Here are the chords with Capo 1. palamin0 at 
did a great Capo 3, but this one works with the lead stuff.

Intro: E-F#m-A-B
    E             B
The only ground I ever owned
    F#m            A
Was sticking to my shoes,
    E                B
Now I look out my front porch, 
        C#m       A
At this panoramic view,
      E                  B
I can sit and watch the fields fill up,
     F#m            A
With rays of golden sun,
            E               B
I watch the moon lay on the fences,
     C#m                A
Like thats where it was hung.

My blessings are in front of me,
A                  E
It's not about the land,
I'll never beat the view,
From my front porch looking in.

          E                    F#m
There's a carrott top that can barley walk,
       A            B
With a sippy cup of milk,
         E                     F#m                
A little blue eyed blonde with shoes on wrong,
          A              B
Cause she likes to dress herself,
             C#m       A     B              Cm
And the most beautiful girl holdin' both of them,
        D    A D    A   B
And the view I love the most,
Is my front porch looking in.

     E                  B
I've traveled here and everywhere,
 F#m         A
Following my job,
     E                  B
I've seen the paintingd from the air,
        C#m             A
Brushed by the hands of God,
    E                 B 
The mountains and the canyons reach,
     F#m            A
From sea to shining sea,
            E                B
But I can't wait to get back home,
       C#m             A
To the one he made for me.

Cause everywhere I'll ever go,
A                  E 
And everwhere I've been,
Nothing takes my breath away,
like my front porch looking in.

(Chourus & Lead)

G                A            
I see what beautiful is about,
G                A
When I'm looking in, 
Not when I'm looking out

(Chourus & Fade out)

Have fun, I'll work up the lead part or 
if you know it you are welcome to cut
and paste with anything I put up here.

Ops, i meant to put that the Cm
sounds best as 557765, Am bared to the 5th fret, or forth if you count from the capo.
Have fun

You sure the Fm you put isn't supposed to be
and F#m? That is what is usually used in Key
of E....
-lmofle | 7/24/2003
Yeah good tab but for the Fm. As mofle said it is F#m.
Other then that perfect to palaminos tab :)
-yinielin | 7/24/2003
Thanks for the correction. I guess that is what I was playin i just typed it wrong.
can I change it on the tab or do I
have to type it all over?
-Trenton | 7/24/2003
Go ahead call me a STUPID $#@
I just saw the button at the top
I'll fix it. Thanks again.

-Trenton | 7/24/2003
Can I get a rating or what??!?!?!?
just playing, Palamin0 gets the credit
I just transposed it. Thanks for a great
tab palomin0
-Trenton | 7/24/2003
The Cm is C#m
-yinielin | 7/25/2003
I don't think there is such a thing
as C#,,maybe D flat, but no C#..
I may be wrong not to great at music
theory but I dont think there is a C#.
But then again Dflat, and C# would
be the same thing, a half between
C & D. Cool, If thats what it is I'll change it.
-Trenton | 7/25/2003
Yes its a matter of the way you learned. You are
right C#m and Dbm are the exact same chord. I just
learned with #s more then flats so thats what term
I use.
-yinielin | 7/26/2003
Cool, sounds good to me. I was
also taught to sing on top of
a note, not on the bottom
of it so i guess thats in a way
more on the sharp side than the flat.
-Trenton | 7/26/2003
this is a great song, just a note for those who may be interested.
as trenton says, this is played with capo on 1st fret for lead,
but if theres 2 of you, the rhythm guitar is played with
capo on the 3rd fret (see palamino's submition) and you
can even simulat the fiddle by hammering with the D formation.
Let us know what you think.
Good on you guys
