It's the skin and bones that keep me on the road
The shoulderblades of a beast that haunts my soul
G          D          C
Wandering lonely and scared
G           D         C
I live the tragedy I shared


It's quick to drag you in but hard to shake
It gives but doesn't match how much it takes
G          D          C
Growing stronger and loud
G           D           C
I lived it but now I'm wanting out



Em                   C
I built the fence, I hung the sign
G                       D
Wine red letters said 'Keep in mind 
C                      G
Where I been so don't come in'
Em                    C
But how long can you live in shame
G                                   D
And drop a life long curse on your own last name
C                    G
The trouble is, I'm used to it

Intro x2


It's the questions that keep me turning back
To see those rumors turned to fact
G          D          C
Wandering lonely and scared
G           D         C
I live the tragedy I shared



Em                    C
I built the fence, I hung the sign
G                        D
Blood red letters said 'Keep in mind 
C                    G
Where we've been so don't come in'
Em                   C
But how long can we live in shame
G                                 D
And drop a life long curse on your own last names
C                 G
The trouble is, we're used to it
C                 G
The trouble is, we're used to it
C                 G
The trouble is, we're used to it

Intro x2

It's the tin and the board that keep me going home
But it's who I am that won't let me alone
G         D          C
Growing stronger and loud
G         D          C
Growing stronger and loud
G         D          C
Growing stronger and loud
