I made this version by combining the Countrytabs.com and talby1234's from 
theavettbrothers.com versions. They deserve all the credit. Also Roger Miller!

Intro
C C/B Am G F G C   C C/B Am G F G C 


C                   C/B              Am     G
The people in this city call me country,
F                G                  C
Because of how I walk and talk and smile.
C                     C/B              Am     G
Well I don't mind them laughing in the city,
F                         G              C
But the country folks all say I'm citified.
C                     C/B             Am      G           
The fighting men they say that I'm a coward.
F                G              C
Because I never push no one around.
C               C/B           Am      G
Gentle people call me trouble-maker,
F                   G                  C
Cause I'll always fight and stand my ground.
F            Em
Funny I don't fit.
 Dm                 G             C
Where have all the average people gone?

C C/B Am G F G C 

C                 C/B               Am      G
Some pious people point and call me sinner,
F                     G              C
Because to them I've never seen the light.
C              C/B            Am      G
Other folks think of me as a preacher.
F                G               C
I'm just doing what I think is right.
C                  C/B               Am     G
The wealthy people think that I am a hobo,
F                   G              C
Lean and hungry, writing mournful songs.
C                  C/B                     Am     G
And the poor, poor people think I am a rich man,
F                   G                C
But really, I'm just trying to get along.
F                  Em
It's funny I don't fit.
    Dm                     G              C 
Tell me where have all the average people gone?

C C/B Am G F G C 

C                 C/B              Am     G
And the government has given me a number,
F                G                 C
To simplify my birth and life and death.
C                  C/B                  Am     G
And still my woman thinks I'm awful important,
F                            G              C
Like the moon the stars the sea the sky and breath.
F            Em
Funny I don't fit.
 Dm                 G             C
Where have all the average people gone?
F                   Em
Yes, it's funny I don't fit.
 Dm                G               C
Where have all the average people gone?
   F          Em
Honey I don't fit,
 Dm                G              C
Where have all the average people gone?
