Capo on 2nd Fret

Into: G

Verse 1
G
I got a cracked windshield and Mardi Gras beads
G
Some trucker hats and old hotel keys
         D                       G           C
We got a dash, full of trash and other bands CD's
      G                      D          G
Got a cracked windshield and Mardi Gras beads

G
Breaking points and broken guitar strings
G
We bet big and we lost everything
          D                   G                C
Damn near wasted all our 20's chasing down a dream
              G                   D             G
Now we're all breaking points and broken guitar strings

Chorus:
          C                  G
We ain't ever gonna make it, like I thought we would
   C                                       D
So why can't we just pack it up and say we did the best we could
  G                             G         D          C
I used to be a decent man, then life just took its toll
                                               G
Now I'm just a casualty of rock and roll

C  G     C  G      C  G     C  G

Verse 2
G
Closing time and opening bands
G
A different town, same old one night stands
        D                                  G          C
Another midnight muse in cowboy boots with X's on her hands
G                D       G
Closing time and opening bands

G
It's like playing a game you know you'll never win
G
You're down to your last hand and you're all in
       D                                               G                   C
Then a turn of luck and you double up, just to bet it all again
              G                 D                   G
You see we're playing a game we know we'll never win.

Chorus:
          C                  G
We ain't ever gonna make it, like I thought we would
   C                                       D
So why can't we just pack it up and say we did the best we could
                 G                        G         D     C
I shoulda been a doctor or a lawyer, or a policeman on patrol
                                              G
Instead I'm a casualty of rock and roll

C  G   C  G    C  G    C  G

Verse 3
G
Tell my mama and my daddy that I tried
G
Tell all my friends and family goodbye
            D                               G                    C
'Cuz if the road is where you live boy, the road is where you'll die
        G           D              G
Tell my mama and my daddy that I tried

Chorus:
         C                   G
We ain't ever gonna make it, like I thought we would
   C                                       D
So why can't we just pack it up and say we did the best we could
          G                         G           D         C
I gave my heart to the highway, she returned it full of holes
                                             G
We're just casualties of rock and roll

 Rock and Roll, Rock and Roll, Rock and Roll, Rock and Roll
C         G    C         G    C         G
 Rock and Roll, Rock and Roll, Rock and Roll
