    Give this a try. I used the following link to work out the words and chords.
    Let me know if you hear things differently.

    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
