Transposed to make life easier to capo on third fret, I'm quite certain the 'Cmaj7/
E' isn't actually called that but it sounds right so we'll call it that for now!


Cma7j/E: x32003

intro: Am | Cmaj7/E | Am | Cmaj7/E  | Am | Cmaj7/E  | F | Cmaj7/E

           Am
I didn't mean to end his life

I know it wasn't right
           Cmaj7/E
I cant even sleep at night

Cant get it off my mind
            Am
I need to get out of sight
                                          Cmaj7/E
Before I end up behind bars

                      Am
What started out as a simple altercation
              Cmaj7/E
Turned into a real sticky situation
               F
Me just thinking on the time that im facing
                                  Cmaj7/E
Makes me wanna cry

                                              Am
                                                  Cmaj7/E
Cause I didn't mean to hurt him
                                             Am
Coulda been somebodies son 
                                        Cmaj7/E
And I took his heart when
                                   Am
I pulled out that gun

Reff :

Am                   Cmaj7/E

                        Cmaj7/E
When she fits right down in my shoes 

What you expect me to
                Am
Do if you're playing me for a fool

I will lose my cool
                       Cmaj7/E
And reach for my fire arm
                          Am
I didn't mean to lay him down
                               Cmaj7/E
But its too late to turn back now
           F
