Vers 


Aadd2  C#m
       We got stuck here for the winter.
Aadd2  C#m        
       Blinded by golden dollar signs.
Aadd2  C#m
       We built some simple structures.
Aadd2  C#m
       Temporary, not permanent.
Aadd2  C#m
       But each year we dug much deeper.
Aadd2  C#m
       And each year things got more serious.
Aadd2  C#m
       Each year our hearts grew weaker.
Aadd2  C#m
       Blinded by golden dollar signs.

We never meant to stay here.

        Am                  C
But we're just dumb animals with our paws in the hole, grasping gold.

F                    G
Now we're stuck in a small town,
Am                       C
out on the shield, but it lost it's appeal long ago.
   F                        G
We wake up at dawn and kiss our wives on the forehead
   Am                       C
and we slowly make our way into the caves where we will forget,
F                   G
the faces of our children and our small regrets
   Am                             C
Like, I should have kept that lucky penny while I had the chance


F                 C
We never meant to stay here.

Enjoy.
