Small Towns And Big Dreams - Paul Brandt
Album: Small Towns And Big Dreams
Written by: Paul Brandt


*Note- If you are a more advanced player there is a more difficult way to 
play the chorus in this song with the bass note progression, Iíve written it 
out below the basic version.

Intro: F  C  Bb  C  (x2)

F 	  	 C
I grew up in a small town
Bb                     C             F
A wheat fields for a downtown kinda place
F                     C
There was really not much around
Bb                      C
You blink and you miss it
F                  C
I never knew what life would bring
      Bb          C
But I always had big dreams
F                     C
I loved to play my guitar and sing
          Bb               C
And every night Iíd wish that
Dm                     C
Iíd get a shot on the Opry stage
Bb                       C
And have people come and see me play
Dm               C
Blasting on the radio waves
          Bb             C
Enough to make my momma cry

Chorus:
                      F
Cause thatís where I come from
Bb           C
Thatís who I am
                 F
Hard workin and God blessed
Bb                     C
Yes sir and thank you maíam
Dm                          C            Bb
The best things around that I have ever seen
           Gm              C    F
Came from small towns and big dreams

F                         C
That small town went and grew up
Bb            C
But I never changed much by Godís grace
F                   C
Friends and family kept in touch
       Bb            C
When I moved to Tennessee
Dm              C
Sing my songs, travel round
Bb                      C
I met a girl and weíre settling down
Dm               C
We wanna find a small town
Bb                       C
Where we can raise a family

CHORUS

Bb
I been around the world

Donít matter anywhere I go
C
Even here in Fort McMurray

I found my kinda folks
       Gm           F
Itís about you and who you are
     Bb
Itís all a state of mind
            Gm             F
And as Iím giving you my heart
            C
I hope you find

CHORUS

Great tab! I love this song, mainly cause I'm from a small town

its awesome. i'm from a small town, not in canada, but the theory is the same. Anyone know the blues-type riff played at the beginning of the song (while the dogs are barking etc.)?
