Graham) Subject: WHERE CORN DON'T GROW WHERE CORN DON'T GROW Recorded by Travis Tritt Words and music by Murrah and Springer [D] As we sat on the front porch of that [G] Old gray house where I was born and [D] raised [Bm] Starin' at the dusty field [G] Where my daddy worked hard every [D] day I [Bm] think it kinda hurt him when I said [G] Daddy there's a lot that I don't [D] know But [Bm] don't you ever dream about a [G] life Where corn don't [D] grow. He just sat there cryin', Starin' at his favorite coffee cup I saw a storm of mixed emotions In his eyes when he looked up He said son at you age I know it seems Like this old world is turning slow And you think you'll find the answer to it all Where corn don't grow. Refrain [D] Hard times are [Bm] real There's dusty [G] fields No matter where you [D] go And you may change your [Bm] mind 'Cause the weeds are [G] high Where corn don't [D] grow. I remember feelin' guilty When daddy walked back in the house I was only seventeen back then But I thought that I knew more than I know now I can't say he didn't warn me City life's a hard row to hoe Ain't it funny how a dream can turn around Where corn don't grow. Refrain You may change your mind Oh, the weeds are high Where corn don't grow.
