Intro: C

Verse:
C
And I sing songs about the past
How I was raised And how I was thrown out on my ass

F
'Cause I didn't care
                    C
'Bout going to school

C
And I saw the look in her eyes
                                                       F
My mother nearly cried when I told her that I wanted to go
                      C
Just to prove them wrong

Am
I've been smoking Cigarettes

           F
Since I was only fourteen
        C - hold -
Just to find an escape
          F - hold -                  C
From this town that was so mean to me

C
And I sing songs about my friends
And how we grew up
                                  F
In all the loose ends, we used to laugh
                       C
'Cause I didn't give a damn

C
And I saw the look in my brothers eyes
When I told him I was leaving
                     F
He couldn't help but despise me
                         C
He's wanted out his whole life

Am
I've been smokin' the green

           F
Since I was merley sixtee
        C - hold -
Just to find an escape
          F - hold -                  C
From this town that was so mean to me

C
And I sing songs about the past

Am
I plea for relief
This town won't recede

C
The things that I want

F
The things that I need

Am
I'll beg and I"ll beg
I'm down on my knees

C
Momma, oh Momma

F
Let me please leave

Am
I plea for relief
This town won't recede

C
The things that I want

F
The things that I need

F                       C
All I ever wanted was Love

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.
