35 mph Town
Written by Toby Keith & Bobby Pinson
Recorded by Toby Keith

(No Capo)

Intro.:  |(D) |(D) |(G) |(G) |

(D) Mama locked the door last night for the first time in all of her years (G)
I said, "(A)Mammy, you gotta be kidding me"
She said, "Things ain't like they used to be round (D) here"
You just wouldn't believe it, kids (D7)growing up without Jesus
Good (G)thing your daddy ain't here to see this (E)now
They stay (D)higher than the water tower in this (A)35 mile an hour (D) Town

She said, "It (D)ain't the drugs, it ain't the booze"
I've had a backroad buzz or two, my-(G)-self
It seems like (A)heaven is slipping further away
The devil ain't got far to go when they raise (D) hell
We used to burn a hole through midnight, smoking a stolen Marlboro Light and
On a (G)good night might kill a 5th of (E)Crown
But now there's a (D)lower higher power in this (A)35 mile an hour (D) town

Oh, (G)we can't blame the babies for (A)growing up lazy
And (D)crazy it ainft (D/F#)them that let them (D) down
If they ain't (G)stealing, theyfre suing, why (A)work when we'll give it to 'em
It's (Bm)right there in the (A)bible that we don't put (G) out
Spare the (D)rod and you'll sour a (A)35 mile an hour (D) town

The "(D)Yes mam"'s gone and the "Please"'s too
It's out the door with the "thank you" in the (G)evening
You don't (A)see a front yard football game
The neighbor kids have done away with the (D)shirt and skins
No one hits the front porch lights to get the kids to come inside
'Cause the (G)streets ain't safe for a bike to ride (E)down
Since they (D)planted a prowler in this (A)35 mile an hour (Bm) town (A)(G)
No they're (D)going nowhere fast tonight
No (A)matter how fast they drive this (G)35 (A)mile an hour (D) town (G) -----

Only lyric is great. Pretty sure the line is: it's out the door with the "thank you" and the "amen".
