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

Repeat #2

                                                      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
