People Know You By Your First Name – Dean Brody

Capo 2nd fret

[E]//// [A]// [B]// [E]////
[A]// [B]// [E]///

It's a [A] town just [B] outside of [E] nowhere
With a [A] general store and [B] one lamp [E] pole
We got [A] wheat fields [B] saw mills and [E] coal mines
[B] Down home country folks

Raised on [A] 4H and [B] dance hall [E] auctions
Spaghetti [A] dinners and [B] parkin’ lot [E] fights,
Aw we [A] might be a [B] little bit [E] backwoods
But [B] ‘round here that’s alright

Chorus:
The people know you by your [E] first name
What kinda [A] truck you drive
How your [B] team did back in high school
So [E] you can't lie
[B] Better watch out who [E] you take home
`Cause `round here it’s a [A] fact of life
The people know you by your [B] first name
And [A] what you [B] did last [E] night

Come on [A] down to our [B] fund raiser [E] dinner
It'll be a [A] high school re-[B]-union and I [E] swear
Another [A] family [B] fallen on [E] hard times
So there won't [B] be an empty chair

Listen [A] close and you'll [B] hear local [E] legend
Of Boone and [A] Crockett and that [B] twelve point [E] rack
Oh you [A] thought you were alone skinny [B] dippin’ in the springs [E] last night
But [B] word here travels fast

The people know you by your [E] first name
What kinda [A] truck you drive
How your [B] team did back in high school
So [E] you can't lie
[B] Better watch out who [E] you take home
`Cause `round here it’s a [A] fact of life
The people know you by your [B] first name
And [A] what you [B] did last [E] night

Here we go ////
[A]// [B]// [E]////
[A]// [B]// [E]////
[A]// [B]// [E]////
[B]//// //

The people know you by your [E] first name
What kinda [A] truck you drive
How your [B] team did back in high school
So [E] you can't lie
[B] Better watch out who [E] you take home
`Cause `round here it’s a [A] fact of life
The people know you by your [B] first name
And [A] what you [B] did last [E] night

Yeah, people know you by your [B] first name
And [A] what you did last [E] night

Hey Hey
[A]// [B]// [E]////

Here is an easier way to do it if you find the B chord shape a bit tough.
