         Am                        C  
With the wrath of the law and the lonesome above you
    G                         Am
And all those who love you behind
    Am                           C
The storm in your rear view, and darkness before you
G                          Am
Where will you fly to this time?

       Am                     C
Only Jesus will go down the road that you’re burning
G                         Am
You should be turning to him.
     Am                       C
But how can you wait and be washed in the water
          G                 Am
When the river is dirty as sin?

Am     C     G     Am

      Am                        C
Well how can she take you and make you so lonely?
G                        Am
Said she was only your friend.
         Am                          C
But any fool and his pride who has tried to refuse her
     G              Am
Can see your using again


    Am                       C
It snows like a ghost of cocaine on the highway
      G                          Am
The shifty plays tricks on your mind
     Am                         C
The wind is like razors and in only 2 days
        G                    Am
You’ve done 200,000 white lines


               C       Am
You took the wrong way home
               C       Am
You took the wrong way home


Am     C     G      Am
Am     C     G      Am


 Am                      C
Blasted the bedrock and laid all the black top
         G                           Am
Like a snake round the shoulders of God.
       Am                          C
But Christ on his hilltop and the cop at the truck stop
      G                        Am
They’re both only doing their jobs.

      Am                        C
But you gone and double-crossed too many, now you lost
     G                           Am
The last friend that you had to lose
     Am                       C
Now he’s in the ambulance, you’re in the cruiser
        G                              Am
With a fatal case of the sucker-punch blues


              C         Am
You took the wrong way home
              C         Am
You took the wrong way home
              C         Am
You took the wrong way home
              C         Am
You took the wrong way home


           Am                    C
With the wrath of the law and lonesome above you
     G                        Am
And all those who love you behind.
