Where I Come From is the 14th studio album by the American country rock band the New Riders of the Purple Sage. It was recorded in 2008, and released on the Woodstock Records label on June 2, 2009.

Following Wanted: Live at Turkey Trot, Where I Come From was the second album recorded by the New Riders after they re-formed in 2005, with band co-founder David Nelson on guitar, long-time member Buddy Cage on pedal steel guitar, Hot Tuna alumnus Michael Falzarano on guitar, Ronnie Penque on bass, and Johnny Markowski on drums. It was the band's first studio album in 17 years, since 1992's Midnight Moonlight.

The music for seven of the songs on the album was written by David Nelson, with lyrics by Robert Hunter, who wrote the lyrics for many Grateful Dead songs.[4][5] Four of the other five songs were also written by current band members. In 2010, a version of the song "Olivia Rose", written by Ronnie Penque, appeared on his album Only Road Home.

The cover of Where I Come From was illustrated by Stanley Mouse, an artist known for his many concert posters and album covers.

Some copies of the album were accompanied by a bonus disc called Where I Come From: Radio Mixes & Live Bonus.
