In My Own Backyard
Recorded by Joe Diffie
Written by Kerry Phillips, Andy Spooner, Joe Diffie

C F C
I thought that life was runnin' off leavin' me behind
F C
So like a fool I jumped the fence just to see what I could find
F G7 C F
But love kept disappearing like children chasing fire flies in the dark
C G7 C
And to think that I once had it all in my own backyard

F C
You'd never know it now but I used to have it all
F Em F Dm G7
A swing set and a plastic pool a shaggy dog that lived to fetch a ball
F Fm
An angel with a glass of tea laughing at the kids and me
C A#7 A7
All soakin' wet from washing that old car
C G7 C
And to think that I once had it all in my own backyard

F C
That bare spot's grown over now where third base used to be

And the weeds have choked out all the flowers
F C
But they can't kill the memories
F G7 C F
Lord I'd love to run back home but there's no one there for me
C G7 C
And that grass I used to hate to mow sure is looking green

Repeat #2

F C A#7 G#
Ooh you'd never know it now but I used to have it all
C G7 C
Once I had it all in my own backyard
