Going Back West

	  		#No intro, just fire away with solo vocals 

Verse 

NC                              G 
I was born and raised in the ghetto 

Talk with me and you'll know 
    C                                   G 
I wasn't satisfied, with living on the side 
                                         C 
I started looking around, for a possibility 
C              G    D                 G 
Listen to my story, of what became of me 


Verse (Same chord progression as 1st verse) 
G C G C C G D G 

I met a businessman 
Who said he had some friends back east 
So why don't you come along, well we can help you at least                       
We'll make you into a big star, by playing your guitar 
But the joke was on me, they left me flat to see 


Chorus 

            D 
Going back West 
        C                   G 
Yes I know I'll make out alright 
            D 
Going back West 
          C                   G 
Where my music's playing all night 
            C                D 
Going back west (going back west) 
                    G 
I think I'll do alright 


Chorus (Same chord progression as 1st Chorus) 
D C G D C G C D G 

Going back west 
Yes I know I'll make out alright 
Going back west 
Where my music's playing all night 
Going back west (going back west) 
I think I'll do alright 


Verse (Same chord progression as 1st verse) 
G C G C C G D G 

'bout a year has come and gone 
And left me standing here 
Thinking how it could have been, for still I ain't nowhere 
They surely took me for a ride, trampled on my pride 
But I hold my head up high, got no more tears to cry 


Chorus (Same chord progression as 1st Chorus) 
D C G D C G C D G 

Going back west 
Yes I know I'll make out alright 
Going back west 
Where my music's playing all night 
Going back west (going back west) 
I think I'll do alright                         x3      While fading out...
