[C]The Mayor gave me the [F]key to the [C]city
The welcome [Am]wagon had [D7]already [G7]appeared
[C]But again I’ll be [F]packing and [C]leaving [Am]
For it’s [C]plain now that [F]you once lived [C]here
It may be that I’ll [F]never for[C]get you
Cause your [Am]love and [D7]love lives every[G7]where
[C]Could it be that I’ll [F]always be [C]saying [Am]
I’ve gotta [C]go now for [F]you once lived [C]here
I see your [G7]face in the cool of the [C]evening
I hear your [G7]voice in each breeze loud and [F]clear
[C]Oh there must be a [F]town without your [C]memories [Am]
But not [C]this one cause [F]you once lived [C]here
No not this one cause [F]you once lived [C]here[/chordpress]

Who is Johnny Paycheck?
– Johnny Paycheck (born Donald Eugene Lytle May 31, 1938 – February 19, 2003) was an American country music singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and Grand Ole Opry member notable for recording the David Allan Coe song “Take This Job and Shove It”. He achieved his greatest success in the 1970s as a force in country music’s “outlaw movement” popularized by artists Hank Williams Jr., Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Billy Joe Shaver, and Merle Haggard. In the 1980s, his music career slowed due to drug, alcohol and legal problems. He served a prison sentence in the early 1990s and his declining health effectively ended his career in early 2000. In 1980, Paycheck appeared on the PBS music program Austin City Limits (season 5).
