I haven't really found a tab for this great song so I figured I'd share how I play it. You can listen to the song for the strum pattern. It sounds awesome acoustic. This is my first tab so please leave me some feedback and let me know if you liked it or if you found any mistakes! Have fun! -Kev Capo 2 Intro G D Am C x2 G D When I was fifteen, I left home young Am C Tore up the tracks and then some G D Me and my dad didn't see eye to eye Am C I never took to him, he never took the time Em D Bullet proof, more than tough C (hold) Smarter than he ever was CHORUS G D Well I burned those wheels down the highway Em C And I learned what I learned the hard way G D Do the best you can do, love many, trust few Em C Work hard for the money in your hands G That's the measure of a man D Am C Yeah the measure of a man G D Anger burns, love cools it down Am C Pretty young woman turned my head around G D The world through her eyes looked so different Am C She lives on faith, she looks for forgiveness Em D Fool proof, it ain't easy C D I need her, she needs me CHORUS G D She stole my heart on this highway Am C She taught me to love through the hard days G D Yeah she's cool when I'm not, she's as steady as a rock Am C She's as solid as the ring on my hand G That's the measure of a man D Am C (hit twice) Yeah the measure of a man BRIDGE Em D Last night she handed me a son of my own C D It killed me to do it, but I picked up the phone CHORUS G D Hey dad I burned ten years down this highway Am C And I learned what I learned the hard way G D Truth is I need you, we'll cry if we need to Am C And I'll swallow my pride if you can G That's the measure of a man D Am C (hit twice) Oh yeah, the measure of a man End on G. Enjoy!
