            C               Em             Am           F
Well out of southern Illinois, come a down home country boy
       C                            G                     C                                   
He's gonna make it in the city playin guitar in the studio
          C                     Em        Am             F                                         
Well he hadn't been there an hour, when he met a Broadway flower
               C                              G                    C                                 
You know she took him for his money and she left him in a cheap motel  


Verse 2
                    
Well now it's easy for you to see, that that country boy is me
         
Tell me how'm I ever gonna break the news to the folks back home
        
Well I was gonna be a great success, things sure ended up a mess

And in the process, I got messed up too
