Capo 3

   G               C               D               G             C
I like fast cars and sharp drinks, chased a lot of crazy things, left behind 
   G                D
my share of broken pieces.
    G                 C      D                   G           C 
This morning I turned 36 and you just remember half of it. You wonder how you 
 G                D
out-lived Hank or Jesus.

Chorus:
           C               D                 G                     C
I put the rage in a river, roll in a thunder. But you kept me from going 
      C         G               D
under when that current got too heavy.
   C                      D                    G                    C
I always thought I'd be a heap of metal, and a cloud of smoke, foot stuck to 
           C                     G                   D
the pedal, sold for parts like a junkyard rusted-out Chevy. 
C             G                   D              G      C           D
Fear I've had none, what the hell made you wanna love a man who was gonna die 
G
young?


       G               C         D                   G                 C
In the mirror I saw my surprise, who knew gray hairs like to hide on a head, 
            G                    D
that didn't think he'd live past thirty.
 G           C                     D                    G 
If I make it thirty more, it's the brown that you'll be looking for as you 
C                G                      D
run your fingers through, say slow down honey.

Chorus:

          C                D                  G                    C
I put the rage in a river, roll in a thunder. But you kept me from going 
       C         G               D
under, when that current got too heavy.
   C                      D                    G                    C
I always thought I'd be a heap of metal, and a cloud of smoke, foot stuck to 
           C                     G                   D
the pedal, sold for parts like a junkyard rusted-out Chevy. 
C             G                   D              G      C           D
Fear I've had none, what the hell made you wanna love a man who was gonna die 
G
young?
        G             C                   D                     G
Call it intuition, or call it crazy. Just thought by now I'd be pushing up 
             C                 G              D
daisies. But I'd gladly stick around if we're together.
        G                 C                       D                  G
So baby when you bow your head tonight, could you tell the Lord I've changed 
                 C       D                      
my mind and with you I'd like to live forever.
