Aint What It Used To Be Chords – Billy Currington

 Ain't What It Used To Be

Capo: 2nd fret

Intro:  G Am C G  (2x)

   G Am 
That backward town, in my rearview
   C G 
Was gonna be my whole world
   G Am 
Til my factory job, got shipped to Mexico
   C G 
And a city boy stole my sweet girl


   G Am 
I used to know everybody by name
   C G 
Everybody's moved away
   G Am 
Can't say that I'm really wantin' to go
          C G 
But I've run out of reasons to stay

(chorus)
             G D Am C 
This ain't nothin' like what I, 
 Am D G 
    had in mind for me
       G D Am C 
Then again my future,
 Am D G 
   Ain't what it used to be


           G Am 
Well I thought like my dad, and his daddy before
      C G 
That I would die where I was born
          G Am 
Live a smalltown dream in a big backyard
 C G 
  Raisin' babies and corn


       G Am 
Now here I am, one eye on the road
    C G 
Tryin' to read the map on the dash
    G Am 
Nowhere close to making up my mind
         C G 
With a fork in the road comin' fast

(chorus 2x)

         G  (one strum)    Am  (one strum)
That backward town, in my rear view
 (pick)  C D G 
Was gonna be my whole world

Outro:  G Am C G  (play to fade)
