Daddy Won't Sell The Farm - Montgomery/Gentry
Album: Tattoos & Scars
Writers: Steve Fox/Robin Branda 


You can play this in Drop D tuning if you want to make it a little more
authentic to the recording. If you do that just play G 5x0003 and D 000232


Intro:  D    C - G/B - D  (x2)

     D
His cows get loose and run right through 
     C                  G
The fast food parkin' lots
     D                      
And Daddy gets calls from the mini-malls 
              C                 G
When they're downwind from his hogs
           C
When his tractor backs up traffic 
       G
The reception ain't too warm
    D
The city's growin around him
    G
But Daddy won't sell the farm


Chorus:
                  D
You can't roll a rock up a hill that steep
     C9                         G
You can't pull roots when they run that deep
                     D                          C
He's gonna live and die in the eye of an urban storm
G                      D
Daddy won't sell the farm


D    C - G/B - D


    D
He worked and slaved in '68 
     C                         G
And bought these fields and trees
    D
He raised his corn in a big red barn 
       C            G
And a healthly family
    C
He learned to love the woodlands
           G
He can't stand to do em harm
         D
There's concrete all around him 
     G
But Daddy won't sell the farm


CHORUS


C                            G
One day he's gonna leave it all to me
           D
And I'll start my own branch of the family tree
C                        G                          A
They'll get the message written on the roof of the barn
                      D
Daddy won't sell the farm


Instrumental: (repeat intro progression twice)


CHORUS

D                                                  C
We're gonna live and die in the eye of the urban storm
G                     D
Daddy won't sell the farm

(repeat intro progression to fade)
