Intro:  / G - - - / x6

 

  G (4)               

Down here, where we're at, the weather changes, that's the way it goes

 C (2)                                                         G (2)
Sometimes it snows, when everything's wrong

  D                                     C (hold)                           G (2)
Sometimes it snows, but when it does, it doesn't last long

 

  G (4) 
Down here, where we're at, all we do is sit out on the porch

          C (2)                                      G (2)
And play our songs, and nothing's wrong

  D                                           C (hold)            G (2)
Sometime friends come around, they all sing along

 

Chorus 1:

  D (2)
Down here, where we're at

Em                 C
     Everyone is equally poor

D (2)
     Down here, we don't care

Em                               C (½ walkdown) D (hold ½)           G (4)
     We don't care what happens outside the screen door

 

  G (4)      
Down here, where we're at, sweat drips from the tip of your nose

         C (2)                                                   G (2)
You wear loose clothes, and you try to stay cool

      D                                C (hold)                     G (2)
We all still have a lot of fun, never saw much school

 

Chorus 2:

  D (2)
Down here, where we're at

Em                  C
     Everyone is equally poor

D (2)
     Down here, we don't care

Em                               C (½ walkdown) D (hold ½)                
     We don't care what happens outside the screen

 G (9)

door,  the screen door, the screen door

 

End on G
