first "tab" so it might be wrong but it sounds right to me.

Capo at 1 if your guitar is set to standard tuning

F
I woke up this morning and I 
C
swore to God I'd never,
G                         C
ever take another drink again.
F
I fought it like the devil
C
but you know that you're in trouble
G                               C
when your fourteen and drunk by 10AM
F
tried to hide it from my mom and dad
C                                                          G
all my friends said straighten up I just laughed and said you don't understand
C                          G          C
that's a hell of a lot to ask of a drinkin' man


F
at sixteen I was on my own 
C
flyin' high and staying stoned
G                                C
I knew everything there was to know
F
I did things that I can't talk about
C
I wore my mom and daddy out
G                                      C
Late nights they spend prayin' for my soul


F
Stayed sober once for nine days in a row
C
I quit cold-turkey
G                            C
Dame near almost made it to ten
C                            G            C
But that's a hell of a lot to ask of a drinkin' man


F                 C                   G
I look into the mirror, bottle in my hand
F                        C                     G
I'd like to pour it out, I just don't think I can
C                               G            C
'Cause that's a hell of a lot to ask of a drinkin' man



F
I don't know when or where it was
C
Or how we met and fell in love
G                                     C
Or why she'd even fall for a guy like me
F
I tried to pull myself together
C
Hopin' we could last forever
G                           C
For a while I started to believe


F
Her daddy said, "She's all I got
C
Son, don't ever break her heart
G                               C
Promise me before you take her hand"
C                            G          C
But that's just too much to ask of a drinkin' man


F                 C                   G
I look into the mirror, bottle in my hand
F                        C                     G
I'd like to pour it out, I just don't think I can
C                               G            C
'Cause that's a hell of a lot to ask of a drinkin' man



F                          
I woke up this mornin' and I 
C                      
swore to god I'd never, 
G                         C
ever take another drink again
