I personally think this is played out of a standard E. All A's and E's are major.
Leave the top (high pitched) E string open on all D's. 

Try doing a pull off of the bottom E string - (3rd fret like a G) before the end
of each major verse or chorus that ends with E. This will give you that step-DOWN 
deep tone like "born and raised in the boon (pull off) docks".

Also, before the D's, try a step-UP pull off of the second string (3rd fret) going 
into the D. Like this: "I keep my (pull off (second string)) heart and soul in the 
boon (pull off (bottom E string)) docks". 

Adding these two pull-offs will give you more of a country sound and will help with
the spaces between chords.


E
I feel no shame
E
I'm proud of where I came from
      D        A                 E
I was born and raised in the boondocks
E
One thing I know
E
No matter where I go
          D         A               E
I keep my heart and soul in the boondocks

(Verse)

          B
And I can feel
     D                              E
That muddy water running through my veins
          B        D                     E
And I can hear that lullaby of a midnight train
   D                  A
It sings to me and it sounds familiar

(Repeat Chorus)

          B
And I can taste
     D                             E
That honeysuckle and it's still so sweet
        B
When it grows wild
D                             E
On the banks down at old camp creek
             D                  A
Yeah, and it calls to me like a warm wind blowing

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge)

D                         A-E
It's where I learned about living
D                         A-E
It's where I learned about love
D                         A-E 
It's where I learned about working hard
    D                      D A  E (Theres a lead guitar playin a riff here that is in E)
And having a little was just e-nough
D                        A-E
It's where I learned about Jesus
D                  A-E
And knowing where I stand
D                       A-E  D
You can take it or leave it, this is me
A            E
This is who I am


(Solo)    E - E - D - A - E


          B 
Give me a tin roof
  D                    E
A front porch and a gravel road
           D 
And that's home to me
              A 
It feels like home to me

(Repeat Chorus)

          D         A               E
I keep my heart and soul in the boondocks


** NC (1st time around) **

You get a line, I'll get a pole
We'll go fishing in the crawfish hole
Five-card poker on a Saturday night
Church on Sunday morning

** 2nd time has light single strums, 3rd time play these chords **

E
You get a line, I'll get a pole
D                         A   
We'll go fishing in the crawfish hole
(Down in the boondocks)

E
Five-card poker on a Saturday night
D         A      E   
Church on Sunday morning

Great chords. The only thing I might add is that I think a Bm works best in place of the B.
