Intro: Am, G, F 

First verse:
G                   Am
She wondered once about her luck
            G               F
Put out her match with a tear
             F         C          G     C
She said I'm bored to death and born to,
                 F(add9)
Look, you want way the hell away from here?
          G                          Am
He said you don't look that tough to me
   G                F(add9)
Leaned and lit a cigarette
               F         C       G        C
How 'bout you wait and see just what you regret
Am        G        F
Until we get what we get
Am        G        F    
Until we get what we get


Chorus:
    G                  Am    
They say it makes you stonger
F               C      G  C     
 But first you gotta survive
              F            G         C
What didn't kill you will make you wish you died
              F           G          Am      G    F
What didn't kill you will make you wish you died


Second verse:
 G                         Am           
She struggled to read his knuckle tattoos
 Am         G            F(add9)
Beneath the ring and the scar
         F         C           G          C
But the left said love and the right read true
                     G        F(add9)
She said please say you got a car
       G         Am
It's parked out back
       G             Am
It's pointed out of state
       Am         G           F   (add9)            
It's a recent acquisition we should probably ditch the plates

    F                 C             G         C
And it won't get you far enough to ever lose track
     Am               G             F (add9)      
But yeah it's plenty car enough for never coming back


Chorus:
    G                  Am    
They say it makes you stonger
F               C      G  C     
 But first you gotta survive
              F            G         C
What didn't kill you will make you wish you died
              F           G          Am      G    F
What didn't kill you will make you wish you died

Am, G, Fadd9

Middle 8:
Dm                    G
Yellow duffel in the seat back yonder
C                F
Bunch of pretty junk I bought her

G                  Am
It's yours if you want
 G                  Am
I believe in the flame
       G            F
But to me it's the same

     F            C         G          C
She said no thanks man my baggage is packed
     F           C              G           F
The name on my ankle with this knife in my back

   F     C             G          C
I know a place on the way out of town
Am        G     F
It's as good as burned down
Am       G      F 
It's as good as burned down
Am
It's as good as...


Final chorus:
    G                  Am    
They say it makes you stonger
F               C      G   C    
 But first you gotta survive
              F G C    
What didn't kill you
              F G C
What didn't kill you 
              F            C         F       Am   G   F
What didn't kill you will make you wish you died


Outro:
                 Am
You call that a scar
   G          C
A bruise, A tear
       F    G
Pillowmarks
     F
Souvenirs
 G         Am
Sou-venirs
