My first tab ever, hope it helps. This is one of my most favorite songs sung by Jamey Johnson Intro C G C G C G Daddy's bourbon breathe was strong as gasoline, F G and it seemed to fuel the rage he had inside. C G He'd come home just burning, mad, drunk, and mean, F G raising hell on a Saturday night. Am G F Mom would lock us up in her bedroom, Am G F he'd be lying in the hallway on our way to sunday school. (Chorus) F C They Both in their own ways became my saving grace. Am G F Daddy passed out with his demons, momma passed the offering plate. F C And she'd cry out to heaven protect this son of mine, Am G F G C while daddy kept the devil off my back by taking up his time. C G Mom said nobody's perfect as we walked in the church F G to ask the good lord to forgive him again. C G I still recall that sermon I hung on every word That's when F G I learned just exactly what father really meant. Am G F And the angels and the people gathered round. Am G F I was standing in that water when the preacher laid me down. Repeat Chorus and add at the end Daddy kept the devil off my back by taking up his time.
