"If you're feeling low then give it a go! Try Lambert's Sniffing Salts today" 

Suffa: 
N.C. 
You know when you're doing a song about a small town 
N.C.                                                          A 
You gotta start it with a cliche, you know what I'm sayin' like 


Verse 

       E 
Time moves a little slower here 
      B                       C#m 
The paint peels 'cause the summers here are so severe 
  A                     E 
And we're nowhere near no where you would know of 
  B                      C#m 
Locals here pride, they show up just to show off 
A                         E                        B 
Four men take a load off, just to watch the day go by 
                          C#m 
Philosophizing with their friends like they're Plato 
    A                        E                B 
They prophecize on the bench by the main road, right 
                           C#m 
They got advice; I'm like 'Ayo, if you say so guys' 
A                      E 
But what do they know, Fox News got 'em lit 
B                                 C#m 
They're shockers, fundamentalists, the new communists 
A                              E 
A girl with a shopping list, clutch her handbag close 
B                             C#m 
I'm like "damn man" then it's all backhands, jokes 
A                             E 
'Cause I'm a gentlemen, but then again most of are 
B                             C#m 
First name basis in the bank, the post-office, the bar 
A                             E                       B 
The grocery, parks, hey lady I ain't tryna grab your pension 
C#m 
The old men on the bench hum

"Well I say looking slick will do the trick so try Barry's Brylcreem cream today!" 


Montaigne & Suffa 

N.C. 
Well lets go, lets go 
A                             E 
We're living in the days when everybody sayin' 
B                     C#m 
"What a time to be alive" 
A                           E 
But I'm feeling out of place like I live in outer space 
B                      C#m 
'Cause it seems I'm stuck in time 
A                       E 
It's like we ride through life 
B                          C#m 
Right in the shadow of the cold war 
            A            E 
It gets so quiet at night 
     B                             A 
Like martial law took a hold of '55. 


Suffa 

      E 
Time moves a little slower here 
  B                                 C#m 
A day feels like a week, a weekend feels like it could go a year 
A                       E 
And we're nowhere near nothing, man it's so true 
B                                   C#m 
I don't tell 'em where I'm from, I tell 'em where I'm close to 
A                         E                     B 
And I can go through an Atlas and show you on a map but 
                 C#m                                    A 
You'd still look me sideways and treat me like I'm backwards 
                       E 
But that's just fine, it so happens I'm 
B                          C#m 
Happy living in a city that is trapped in time 
A                       E 
While you're lined up in traffic I'm 
B                          C#m 
Not panicked 'bout transit, I'm back in time 
A                       E 
For a TV dinner and an early night 
  B                                C#m 
'Cause we get dressed to travel, got an early flight 
A                               E 
Been doing laps of the earth while doing laps of the sun 
B                                 C#m 
Tryna put where I'm at on the map 'cause where I'm from 
A                                E 
Would never get a mention, but all that and then some 
B                          C#m 
Once again the old men on the bench hum

Like martial law took a hold of '55 


Montaigne 

                  E 
Where I go, where I go 
                    B    C#m 
This will always be home, no matter 
A                   E 
Where I go, where I go 
                    B    C#m 
This will always be home, no matter 
A                   E 
Where I go, where I go 
                    B   C#m 
This will always be home, no matter 
A                  E 
Where I go, where I go

This will always be home
