[Verse]

G
Livin' in the city
      D/F#          Em                 G
Ain't never been my idea of gettin' it on
        G                    D/F#
But the job demands that you make new plans
  C                       G      C  G
Before your big chance is gone
          G
You get a house in the hills

              D/F#
You're payin' everyone's bills
         C                             G
And they tell you that you're gonna go far
           G
But in the back of my mind,
          D/F#
I hear it time after time,
    C
"Is that who you really are?"

[Chorus]
C   D   G                 D/F#
Country boy, you got your feet in L.A.
         G7              C
But your mind's on Tennessee
        D              C         G
Lookin' back, I can remember the time
       C                 G
When I sang my songs for free
C   D   G                 D/F#
Country boy, you got your feet in L.A.
       G7                      C
Take a look at everything you own
    G       D        G           D     C
But now and then, my heart keeps goin' home

[Verse]
 G
Talkin' on the telephone
D/F#               Em                G
Settin' up another day of people to meet
 G                     D/F#
You've gotta do what's right
 C                      G     C G
You've gotta spend the night Stayin' in touch with the street
              G
When you're surrounded by friends
             D/F#
They say the fun never ends
        C                        G
But I guess I'll never figure it out
               G
'Cause in the back of my mind
            D/F#
I hear it time after time
     C
"Is this what it's all about?"

[Chorus] (fade out)
C   D   G                 D/F#
Country boy, you got your feet in L.A.
         G7              C
But your mind's on Tennessee
        D              C         G
Lookin' back, I can remember the time
       C                 G
When I sang my songs for free
C   D   G                 D/F#
Country boy, you got your feet in L.A.
       G7                      C
Take a look at everything you own
    G       D        G           D     C
But now and then, my heart keeps goin' home
