Tim Mcgraw – Love You Goodbye chords

Capo 2
D Asus4 G D

D Asus4He was thinkin' back when he was a kid
G DHis folks were divorced
D Asus4 His old man high on somethin'
D G Came knockin' at the door
Em His mama wouldn't talk to him
Em9She said, "Boy, don't you let him in"
Em Em9She was cussin' and pacin'
G D Asus4 G DAnd wastin' her life at that linoleum floor
D Asus4 He took him back to his old apartment
G DTurned off the TV
D Asus4His beautiful broken hero on the couch
G DPassed out asleep
Em And he put him to bed
Em9With tears in his eyes
Em (strum once) D Asus4 G D He said, "Dad, I love you, goodbye"
(just repeats throughout the song) He headed out into the night Seventeen years old Fired up that rusty old pickup Turned his collar to the cold And he headed back to Mama's place Ready for his big escape And he tiptoed up the stairs And left a note in the cover's fold It said, "Mom, I wish I could wave a wand And make you smile again Bring back the man who stole your heart 'Fore the demons got to him" "If I stay here any longer Somethin' sacred's gonna die" He said, "Mom, I love you, goodbye" Took a lot of wrong turns On the road findin' his life By the grace of God he ended up With a boy and a wife And the phone call came from his sister 'Twas that old familiar pain His mother was at the doorstep Of Heaven's pure white light At the end of the service His father came up to him Clear eyed and sober now He said, "Boy, Jesus took my sins" "And I pray someday Maybe you'll forgive me too" With tears in his eyes He said, "Son, I love you, goodbye" His plane touched down in Texas He pulled out his phone Dialed in the number Got the machine of his old man's home He said, "Dad we got an extra room And your grandson has your eyes" Couldn't say anything else 'Cause he started to cry And he choked out
Em Em9 G (strum once)"Dad, I love you, goodbye
Em Em9 GDad, I love you, goodbye"
outro: D Asus4 G D
