 C
You say we're both little people and you like it that way
 Am
But in time I'm gunna put this body to shame -and grow old-
 F
Where a suit like my old man
 G
Pack up all my things and get my tail out of town


              C
We've got it good
                              Am
Whether you like this town or not
                 
I know it's small but with a big head
                   F
it's bound to get hot

In the summer

But the summer is a bummer
    G
If you can't leave
                            Am
This pathetic excuse for a town


 Am
That holds all your memories
 C
a lifetime of crushes and your broken dreams
 F
To be anywhere but here
 G
But baby anywhere is away from me


 C                    Am
If you got it all figured out
                       F
Then what is there to shout about
      G
This midwest town is gunna miss you
 C                  Am
Just go ahead and work it out
                       F
But first come on and let it out
 G
Scream it shout tell everbody that your gunna leave

 
 C
In about one year you'll have it all figured out
 Am
These big city dream are what you're about
 F
Walking like stangers among these states
 G
Only time will tell how long I can wait


              C
We've got it good
                              Am
Whether you like this town or not

I know it's small but with a big head
                   F
it's bound to get hot

In the summer

But the summer is a bummer
    G
If you can't leave
                            Am
This pathetic excuse for a town


 Am
That holds all your memories
 C
a lifetime of crushes and your broken dreams
 F
To be anywhere but here
 G
But baby anywhere is away from me


 C                  Am
If you got it all figured out
                       F
Then what is there to shout about
       G
This midwest town is gunna miss you
 C                  Am 
Just go ahead and work it out
                       F
But first come on and let it out
  G
Scream it shout tell everbody that your gunna leave


 Am               F
Me again oh so casually
                  C                  G
Did you take the hit for me or the home team

 
 C                   Am
If you got it all figured out
                       F
Then what is there to shout about
       G
This midwest town is gunna miss you

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
