My Town - Montgomery Gentry
Album: My Town
Writers: Jeffrey Steele/Reed Nielsen

*Note-the stretches of D in the verse and intro you can 
play D or Dsus2 or go back and forth.

Intro: D 

Verse 1:
There's a for sale sign on a big 'ole rusty tractor
Can't miss it, it's the first thing that you see
Just up the road a pale blue water tower
Says "I love Jenny" painted in bright green
Hey that's my uncle Bill there by the courthouse
He'll be lowering the flag when the sun goes down

                    D       G  D/F# Em   
And this is my town,  na na na  na  na
 A            D               G  D/F# Em                   
Yeah, this is my town,  na na na  na  na
 A          D                 G
(Hey) Where I was born, where I was raised
     Em              A
Where I keep all my yesterdays
      D               G 
Where I ran off cause I got mad
        Em                A 
And it came to blows with my old man
      D               G
Where I came back to settle down
      Em                  A
It's where they'll put me in the ground
        D               G  D/F# Em   
This is my town,  na na na  na  na
 A            D               G  D/F# Em  A        D            
Yeah, this is my town,  na na na  na  na,  my town

Verse 2:
There ain't much going on here since they closed the mill
That whistle still blows everyday at noon
A bunch of us still go down to the diner
Wonder if that interstate's still comin' through
But come Sunday mornin' service at the Church of Christ
Well there ain't an empty seat to be found


Instrumental: D  G  Em  A (x2)

Verse 3:
Well I bought and painted up that rusty tractor
You can't miss it, it's sitting right there in our yard
The county came and took that water tower
And that's Jenny with a baby in the car
Well we're off to Sunday service at the Church of Christ
And if we want a seat we better leave right now

             G  A  G  A       G  ---(one strum on each of these)
And maybe later, me and ol' T-Roy will show you around

         D       G  D/F# Em   
Our town,  na na na  na  na
 A            D               G  D/F# Em                   
Yeah, this is my town,  na na na  na  na
 A          D                 G
Yeah, where I was born, where I was raised....
(repeat the rest of chorus)

A   =   x02220
D   =   xx0232
Dsus2=  xx0230
D/F#=   200232 (hold down bottom string with thumb)
Em  =   022000
G   =   320003

last verse is my and my two year old not ol' T-roy
-krummit | 12/22/2002
actually the last verse says " me and ole T-roy will show you
around....our town" the tab is correct. Shantel's right on the money.
-str8fan | 1/15/2003
The G A G A G part. I guess im the only one who dont hear that.
Sounds like it gets higher and higher and higher. Maybe im wrong but
can you atleast tell me why you think its G A G A G please?
-yinielin | 4/13/2003
Yeah I know what you mean yinelin, actually it is getting higher,
they could be using different bass notes so it's like a little walkup
progression, I didn't go that far into detail so I just put G A G A,
the root chords. It also could be the lead going up and the base
chords are staying the same (G A G A) even though it doesn't sound
like it cause that lead note is taking your ear higher.

-Shantel | 4/14/2003
I think the chords are right as: G A G A G.
It is the lead part that continues on up,
and it sounds maybe like a dobro or
something to me, but I'm for sure that the
chords are right.

Here are the notes for the "G A G A" part.
D E F# G B

what's up with people saying "me and my two-year old"

-sweethomealabam | 3/21/2005
From my understanding mr Eddie Montgomery doesn't have a 2y/o child so lol it wouldn't work anyway.
Eddie is from my hometown wo07 in Springfield Kentucky its nice seeing their big ass tour bus pull into Hardees while Troy, and Eddie get them a big ass monster burger. Either way John Michael (Eddie's Brother) owns a farm on a road called "Tick Creek" Its a nice little farm been deer hunting on it before with a friend of mine whos parents are good friends with Eddie and John Michaels Mother who lives damn near like 3 blocks from me in "East Texas" as we call it but its Texas Loop, She lives on Mackville Texas Loop which runs into Tick Creek. My dad many moons ago trained her Beagle Hounds for her. And I have yet to get an autograph lol.
