Forty Miles From Popular Bluff Recorded by Porter Wagoner Written by Frank Dycus and Larry Kingston
G C I never had a pair of shoes that weren't old hand me downs G D7 And daddy's morning coffee came from old left over grounds G C My momma wore no jewelry or any store bought stuff G D7 G Home was on a hillside forty miles from poplar bluff
D7 Forty miles back in Missouri C G There's a different way of life D7 Where a man thinks of his neighbor C D7 And not his neighbor's wife G C Life is far from fancy sometimes mighty rough G But contentment makes it worth it D7 G Forty miles from poplar bluff
C Our only family treasure was a beat up radio G D7 And it took us to the places where we knew we'd never go G C We’d listen to the Grand Ole Opry Bill Monroe and Roy Acuff G D7 G There was lots of country music forty miles from poplar bluff
C Now sometimes in the winter when the snow was on the ground G D7 The roads would all be closed and we couldn't get to town G C But if daddy had his terbacker and grandma had her snuff G D7 G Then the winters wouldn’t seem so long forty miles from poplar bluff
Repeat #2 D7 G Forty miles from poplar bluff
