Heart Of America by Margo Price Guitar Chords

[Intro]
G

[Verse]
G C G
My sweet mother gets up so early in the morning
D
She turns on the stove and she makes a pot of coffee
G G7 C
My daddy fills his tractor up with diesel to plant the corn
G D G
And that’s how it was on the day that I was born

[Verse]
G C G
Well the days they went by and the bins filled up with grain
D
My mother’s brother died on a motorcycle in the rain
G G7 C
The town got too big for its britches and the government it came
G D G
And now it will never be the same

[Chorus]
D
No one moves away with no money

They just do what they can
Em G
To live in the heart of America
D
Getting by on their own two hands

You can pray to anybody’s Jesus and be a hardworking man
C
But at the end of the day, if the rain it don’t rain
D G
We just do what we can

[Solo]
G G C G
G G D G

[Verse]
G C G
Some time back in eighty-sixwhen big banks took the throne
D
They asked about every local farmer try to dry his own corn
G
But the men in the suits had a bigger plan
G7 C
Than to let it be our own
G D G
When the crops came in that spring, they were blown

G C G
And Neil and Willie tried so hard and battles they have gone
D
But that was still long after the bigger war had been won
G G7 C
No one was there to save the wheat and the cattle at my home
G D G
They took every field my family owned

[Chorus]
D
No one moves away with no money

They just do what they can
Em G
To live in the heart of America
D
Getting by on their own two hands

You can pray to anybody’s Jesus and be a hardworking man
C
But at the end of the day, if the rain it don’t rain, if the bank it don’t break
D G
We just do what we can
D G
You just do what you can

[Outro]
