[Intro]
Em D G C x2

[Verse 1]
           Em              
There's an old train track,
 D                    G
 goes back by the old mill
         Em             D       
With the more slip away everyday
                G
 of the whiskey still
          Em                 
They sell shine by the bottle
 D                C
 for a fire every Saturday
       Em               D   
Behind Old Red's Tavern but 
                          G
you didn't hear that from me

[Chorus]
             C     G  
'Cause we all, act like 
we don't know,
        D
 where daddy got his money
 for a fishin' pole
  C                G    
A Zebco don't come cheap
                D
 in this day in time
            C    G            
And we all, turn the other way, 
         D
'cause we've got bills 
that we can't pay
       C           G  
It's a small town, and 
                D
we know how it goes
                  C    D
It's just another secret

That everybody knows
Em D G C

[Verse 2]
Em             D         
Old man Rainey spends his 
                   G
days at the local store
   Em                D  
He pays for a little but
                       G
 sometimes leaves with more
         Em                 D    
But he's always got a story 'bout 
                      C
his boys shipped overseas
       Em                  
And he hasn't been the same
 D                    G
 since, so we let him be

[Chorus]
          C     G                  
And we all, act like we don't know,
      D
 that he ain't got nowhere to go
       C             
'Cause he's too proud
    G         D
 to beg for a handout
          C      G            
And we all, turn the other way,
         D
 'cause there ain't that
 much left to say
       C           G 
It's a small town, and
                 D
 we know how it goes
                  C    D
It's just another secret
That everybody knows

[Bridge]
          Em               
Well this simple life ain't 
    D          C
as easy as it sounds
             Em           
'Cause we've all got things
       D             C
 that we don't talk about

[Verse 3]
Em               D           
Jenny had a baby last Spring, 
               G
now she's all alone
       Em               D  
'Cause old man Rainey's boy, 
                  G
he ain't coming home
            Em                  
And now she drinks from a bottle
 D                  C
 she got behind Old Red's
           Em                 
'Cause she can't get the sight
 D                         G
 of him leaving out of her head

[Chorus]
          C     G                  
And we all, act like we don't know,
      D
 when she comes into Sunday school
       C            G          D
With a smilin' baby boy in her arms
          C      G                 
And we all, turn the other way, say 
  D
"bless their hearts" and we just pray
       C           G  
It's a small town, and 
                D
we know how it goes
                  C    D
It's just another secret

That everybody knows
Em D C
                  C    D
It's just another secret
That everybody knows

[Outro]
Em D G C x2
