Intro: (A5)  (A5)  (A5)  (A5)

The (A) people came here from parts unknown
(D7) Sleepin' in their cars 'cause they didn't have homes
They (A) thought this place was the promised land
If (D7) you could roughneck, we could use a good man
(E7) Come on boy let me show you around
You could (D7) make a lot of money here (C)
Livin' in a (A) boomtown

Well (A) some build bars and big hotels
(D7) Downshift drive and the people live well
(A) High on the hog and wild on the range
(D7) Pocket full of cash instead of chump change
(E7) This place kicks when the sun goes down
(D7) Ain't life great when you're (C) livin' in a (A) boomtown

  See (D7) oil was the blood that flowed through the soul
  To (A) keep a man workin' when it's forty below
  (B7) Relent to the devil in the (D7) cold cold ground
  (C) Trying to make a dollar here (E7)

(A) Six short years the oil fields went
(D7) Rigs came down and the money got spent
And the (A) wisemen saved for a rainy day
The (D7) fools packed up and moved away
The (E7) hotels closed and the bars shut down
And it (D7) got real quite here, (C) livin' in a (A) boomtown

  See (D7) oil was the blood that flowed through the soul
  To (A) keep a man workin' when it's forty below
  (B7) Relent to the devil in the (D7) cold cold ground
  (C) Trying to make a dollar here (E) 
  Livin' in a (A) boomtown

Solo: (A5)  (A5)  (A5)  (A5) x 2

Now the (A5) cafe's filled with people tellin' lies
(D5) Trying to figure out how the town went dry
(A5) You can buy a house a dime on the dollar
(D5) Need a good home just give me a holler.....
(E7) I can move you in with no money down
Still (D7) tryin' to make a dollar here (C) livin' in a (A) boomtown

Livin' in a (A) boomtown
Livin' in a (A) boomtown
