Upstairs, downtown
By: Toby Keith

Key of D
Intro: (slowly) D, A, G, A, D  (2 times)

D       A    D A    G A
Route 14, Box 308, she said goodbye at the cattle-guard gate,
G A D    A
Hopin' she would find her a place in the world
 D   A     D A G
With her mind made up and tears in her eyes, she almost made her daddy 
   A G A D
cry, he said, "Don't forget to call when you get there girl."
Bm      G       D  A
Driving' on that 2-lane road hopin' she might find
  Bm G D      A
A whole lot more waiting up ahead than what she left behind


Chorus:
        D A       G   A     D A    G      A
Moving' upstairs, downtown, life's too short to be hanging a-round
D A G A    Bm   A G
She's 18 and it's time she got out of (back to) the woods
 A D A G A
She's gettin' out while the gettin's good


D      A D A G A
All bills paid and a room with a view, she's unpacked a dish or two
G A   D  A
She just got her phone turned on today
   D A D A
There's a big ol' world waitin' just outside as she's thumbin through
    G A G      A    D
the classifides, lookin' for work at any old job's okay
Bm     G      D   A
Drivin' on that cross-town freeway, hopin' she might find
  Bm G D A
A whole lot more waitin' up ahead than what she left behind  

Chorus

 D     A   D    A
Man she lost her job at the grocery store and the wolf came knocking
G A    G   A      D    A
at the door, red notice said they turned off her telephone
 D A D   A G A
There's nothing left for her to do so she's packed up a thing or two,
G A      D  A
Loaded her car down now she's headed home
Bm      G       D  A
Drivin' on that 2-lane road, hopin' she might find
  Bm G D      A
A whole lot more waiting up ahead than what she left behind.

Chorus

Outro:  D, A, G, A, D
