On a three hour flight from Memphis to LA 
I was silently celebrating my first class upgrade  Laughing at my jeans and my boots  Beside those high dollar shoes and Armani suits
When the gentleman next to me said the drinks up here are free
So if you'd like the first one can be on me
He said I'm heading back from business in New York and Rome
Tell me son, Where do you call home

I said I'm from the front pew of a wooden white church 
The courthouse clock it still dont work
 Where a man's word means everything
 Where moms and dads were high school flings
Gave their children grandmothers maiden name
Yes it may not sound like much
But its where I'm from

So we drank that round and then another  There wasn't a topic in this world we did not cover 
He said I headed out west when I was barely 19
Just a kid chasing my dreams 
I said I'm flying out here to pick up my big brother 
He's been fighting the cancer they discovered 
But he called last night and said I think this is the end
So come take me home to my family and my friends 

 Where the quarterback dates the homecoming queen
The truck's a ford and the tractor's green 
And Amazing Grace is what we sing
Well there's a county fair every fall
And your friends are there no matter when you call
Yeah It may not sound like much but it's
 Where I'm from

And as we stood to claim the bags we checked 
He said I'll pray for your brother and did I mention that
 Italian suits haven't always been my style 
See I was quarterback of my high school team
We took state back in '63
And my wife, she's still my homecoming queen

 Cause I'm from the front pew of a wooden white church 
A courthouse clock that still don't work
 Where a man's word means everything
 Where moms and dads were high school flings
Gave their children grandmothers maiden name
Yes it may not sound like much
I said it may not sound like much but it's where I'm from
It's where I'm from
 Where I'm from
 Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
