Guitar chords with lyrics
Intro: G+G Verse 1: G+G C majorC I live on a country road in the town where I was born. G+G D MajorD I wake up every morning to the birds singing their songs. G+G C majorC G+G I get out of bed and walk over to my window. D MajorD C majorC I watch the birds fly and think D MajorD G+G Will they ever be that happy again?
Verse 2: Go down stairs to find the wife that I won. Sit down at the table and stare at my aged hands of 81. Open up the paper to the obituaries. I look at the faces and see if I recognize any. Chorus: C majorC G+G This is my life as a suspicious man. C majorC G+G D MajorD When everything's been stripped away from these hands. G+G C majorC Everyone I loved has come and gone. G+G D MajorD G+G And to think, maybe I'll be the next one.
Verse 3: Get a call today from my only son. He tells me all about the city and says, "I'm sorry dad, but I just had to run." "I know i didn't turn out the way you wanted me to." "And I hope you still love me the way that I love you." Chorus: C majorC G+G This is my life as an angry man. C majorC G+G D MajorD People disobey everything I say anyway they can. G+G C majorC Everything I've done has gone to dirt. G+G D MajorD G+G And when I try my best I just get hurt. Verse 4: I go outside to buy me some time. I sit on the back porch with a beer in hand and my life in mind. Think about all the people I pushed under me. And I guess the only on eto blame is me. Chorus: C majorC G+G This is my life as a wasted man. C majorC G+G D MajorD Pushing everyone away so I can be the one to grab that helping hand. G+G C majorC In my life I've lost everyone I love G+G D MajorD G+G From the things I've said or the things I've done. Ending: G+G
