Hate Lives In A Small Town

	  		

Intro - D 

D                                   D 
If you're headin' down the highway, down about route ten 
                                  D7 
Get off on the last exit and take it around the bend 
              G               
You'll find a small town 
                     D 
But don't go hangin' around 
     A7                        A7 (strike once) 
'Cos hate lives in a small town 
G                          D 
 'Least that's what I have found 

D                             D 
The moms are in the kitchens, and they're baking pies 
                                          D7 
They smell so good, they're made to cover up the smell of lies 
             G 
They're in a small town 
                        D 
But pies don't cure all ills 
    A7                        A7 (strike once) 
And hate lives in a small town 
G                           D 
 That's why those moms take pills 

        G 
Well, I went to the big city 
                         D 
And everyone was wearing black 
        G 
If they saw that in my home town 
A7                        D 
  They wouldn't stand for that 
      G 
I saw kids all covered in tattoos 
                        D 
With Mohawks and purple hair 
A7                       A7 (strike once) 
But what really struck me 
G                     D 
 Was no one seemed to care 

D                                 D 
The Knights they beat the Badgers when they played down in a square 
                                         D7 
But they saved the biggest beating for a kid with longish hair 
             G 
They're in a small town 
                    D 
That kid was me one year 
     A7                        A7 (strike once) 
'Cos hate lives in a small town 
G                    D 
 More so if you seem queer 

D                          D 
The pastors in the pulpit, preachin' righteous lies 
                                         D7 
And the congregation, they don't know he slept with all their wives 
                   G 
They're in a small town 
                        D 
And it's clear clear to see 
     A7                        A7 (strike once) 
That hate lives in a small town 
G              D       
 As does adultery 

        G 
Well, I went to the big city 
                     D 
With my clothes in a pack 
       G  
When I got off at the station 
A7                     D 
  There was no turning back 
      G 
I met freaks and creeps and weirdos  
                     D 
Loose women and some geeks 
                  A7                     A7 (strike once) 
And they were the nicest gosh darn people 
G                 D 
 I'd ever hope to meet 

         D 
When you roll into a small town, they're nice as they can be 
                                              D7 
But at night they put on sheets and hang your sad ass from a tree 
             G 
They're in a small town 
                    D 
Don't dare be different 
     A7                        A7 (strike once) 
'Cos hate lives in a small town 
G                        D 
 Unless you're just like them 

D 
So if you're livin' in a small town and you feel you're in a vice 
                                  D7 
Buy yourself a ticket, kid, hell, just take my advice 
              G 
And leave the small town 
                    D 
Be quick as you can be 
A7                        A7 (strike once) 
Get out of that small town 
G                        D 
 And you'll be free like me 


End on one strike of D
