C G C G Verse 1
C F Dm F I ain't from Texas, but I made my way from Dallas
Dm G C - G and I know the lonesome sound is following
C F Dm FI ain't a gambler, but I can recognize a hand
Dm G C - Gand when to hold, when queens are staring back at me.

C - F - G Verse 2 (Use chords from first verse). Once I was a carpenter, man my hands were calloused I could swing a metal mallet sure and straight But I took to the highway, a poet young and hungry and I left the timbers where they lay
F Fm Forever I will move like the world that turns beneath me
C Am Gand when I lose my direction I'll look up to the sky
F and when the black cloak drags upon the ground
Fm CI'll be ready to surrender, and remember
Am Gwell we're all in this together
F FmIf I live the life I'm given, I wont be scared to die
Verses 3+4. (Same as first two.) And I don't come from Detroit, but her diesel motors pull me and I followed till I finally lost my way And now I spend my days in search of a woman we called purpose And if I ever pass back through here town I'll stay Chorus 2 (Same as first). Forever I will move like the world that turns beneath me and when I lose my direction I'll look up to the sky and when the black cloak drags upon the ground I'll be ready to surrender, and remember well we're all in this together If I live the life I'm given, I won't be scared to die (Interlude again then that cool little riff). And my life is but a coin, pulled from an empty pocket Dropped into a slot with dreams of sevens close behind And hope and fear go with it, and moon and the sun go spinning Like the numbers and fruits before my eyes Bridge
C F G CSometimes I hit, sometimes it robs me blind
Sometimes I hit, sometimes it robs me blind Chorus 3 (Same as first two). Forever I will move like the world that turns beneath me and when I lose my direction I'll look up to the sky and when the black cloak drags upon the ground I'll be ready to surrender, and remember well we're all in this together If I live the life I'm given, I won't be scared to die ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2.

(Verse pattern)
C GHard to believe I won't see you again
Am Em7We were just fighting when winter began
F G C GThe coldness of our words competing with the wind from the north.
C GStill they make me shiver but in a very different way
Am Em7The pages of the calendar kept turning away
F G C GI have some better words now but it's too late to say them to you.
My dream of all dreams and my hope of all hopes Is only to tell you and make sure you know How much I love you and how much I always did. And yes I know you loved me, I can see it in your eyes And it was in your struggle and it was in your mind And it was in the smile you gave me when I was a kid (Chorus)
C Am GFeels like no one understands
C Am GAnd now my only chance
F G C Em7 AmTo talk to you is through my prayers.
F G CI only wanted to tell you I cared
(Verse pattern) Every night after and every day since, I found myself crying when the memory hit. Sometimes it knocks me down, sometimes I just put it away. Down in my mind where I don't care to go The pain of a lesson is letting me know If you have love in your heart let it show while you can Yes now I understand But now my only chance To talk to you is through my prayers. I only wanted to tell you I cared. I only wanted to tell you I cared. (Outro Repeat intro rift) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 8.
