Take me back to South Tallahassee
E5 +
Down cross the bridge to my sweet sassafrassee
E5 +
Can’t stand up on my feet in the city
E5 +
Got to get back to the real nitty gritty

A7
Yes sir no sir don’t come close to my home sweet home

Can’t catch no dose from a hot tail poontang

sweetheart sweat who could make silk purse from a J.

E5 +
Paul Get and his ear with her face in her beer

D A E5 +
Home sweet home

E5 + E5 +
Get out in the field put the mule in the stable

E5 +
Ma she’s a cookin’ put the eats on the table

E5 +
Hate’s in the city and my love’s in the meadow

E5 +
Hand’s on the plough but my feet’s in the ghetto

A7
Stand up sit down don’t do nothin’ it ain’t no good

when boss man’s stuffin’ it down their throats for

paper notes and their babies cry while cities lie at

E5 +
their feet when you’re rockin the streets

D A E5 +
Home sweet home
