    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
