VERSE
Ddim    D
William Brown, 
    Ddim  D
A tobacco man
A    A9      A6  A7
Left North Carolina 
        Ddim     D
When he sold his land
 
VERSE
   Ddim   D
He took a train 
   Ddim D
to Oma -ha
A      A9         A6           A7        Ddim    D
Stayed there with some friends he had 
 
 
CHORUS
       Gsus2           G
And he didn't mind the dust
       G               Gadd#11
And he didn't mind the wind
       Gsus2           G
And he didn't mind the cold
       Dsus2       D     D(b5)    Dsus2 D   D(b5)
And he didn't miss home
 
 
VERSE
       Ddim      D
And he liked the people
       Ddim      D
And he liked the town
      A        A9     A6      A7
So he built himself a house beside 
    Ddim D     D(b5)
The ri - ver
 
 
VERSE
       Ddim         D
And he sent for his children
       Ddim         D
And he sent for his cars
       A      A9   A6      A7
And he bought a little business 
           Ddim  D
That would run itself
 
 
CHORUS
       Gsus2           G
And he didn't mind the dust
       G               Gadd#11
And he didn't mind the wind
       Gsus2           G
And he didn't mind the cold
       Dsus2       D         Dsus2 D     Dsus2 D     Dsus2 D
And he never missed home
