I jotted these chords down while watching a video of him playing. The chords are exact, 
the timing however, may be a tad off. Just play around with it until you find what works 
for you. Enjoy


Intro: G-D-G-D-G-Cm-G-D-G-Cm-G
GIt was my senior year
C GI just turned eighteen
Cm G D GI was a friday night hero, with division one dreams
GI had an offer on the table
C GA four year ride
Cm G D G'Til that fourth and two and twenty four dive
CHORUS:
D C GI left on a stretcher, wound up on a crutch
DWalked on that next summer
C GWound up getting cut
Cm D C GI flipped off that coach, left that school in the dust
Am Cm CFor letting my dreams go bust
C D (one strum) GBut I thank God I ain't what I almost was
GYea, I moved on back home
C GAnd came awful close
Cm G D Gto being some son-in-law to some CEO
G C GCoulda been a corner office, country club, suit and tie man
Cm D GAnswerin' to no one, but her and him
CHORUS:
D C GI ran out on his money, ran out on her love
D C GAt four in the morning I loaded my truck
Cm D C GI left my home town in a big cloud of dust
Am Cm CI just had to follow my gut
C D (one strum)And I thank God I ain't what I almost was
G C GIn a guitar town I bought this old Epiphone
Cm D GStarted stringin' chords and words into songs
G C GI've been putting in time on Sixteenth Avenue
Cm D GPouring out my heart for tips on a stool
D C GI ain't making a killing, but then there's those nights
D C GWhen the song comes together and hits 'em just right
Cm D C GThe crowds on their feet cause they can't get enough
Am Cm COf this music I make and I love
C CmAnd I thank God I ain't, yea I thank God I ain't,
C D GYea man I thank God I ain't, what I almost was
