Trace Adkins – I Came Here To Live chords

TRACE ADKINS I Came Here to Live
I know Trace sometimes performs this song a step lower (G,C,G,D) at live
concerts but this is done in the recorded key as on the album American Man Geatest Hits 
so if it doest sound right to you, you're probably thinking about the other version he does.
If thats the one you like, just drop down a whole step (G,C,G,D instead of A,D,A,E)and 
should be right.
As for the recorded version this hits it right on.

AI grew up in a town where tough was a cigarette
And a souped up car on a county road Nothin' much to do back then So we'd make bets On how much drink a guy could hold
DAnd I held my own
ALearn to hold my own (play intro 1 time)
ADaddy works some dead-end job at the concrete plant
Mama taught the Sunday bible class For eighteen years I remember thinkin' There was more to life than that
DSo I ran the streets to beat the Devil
AGoin' just as fast as I could fly
D'Cause I came here to live
E N.C. N.C. N.C. AI didn't come here to die
D AMama used to wait for me with the porch light on
E AWorried about her little boy 'til I got home
DDaddy he'd say listen son
ABut back then there wasn't much
C DThat I didn't already know
(same chords from here on out) I reckon I was doing close to 80 When I felt the tire slip out from under me And I never set out lookin' for Jesus So I guess Jesus come lookin' for me And He found me upside down in a ditch Smokin' gas in my eyes And He said son you came here to live You didn't come here to die Sunday morning I got up and I went to church That summer I got a job and I went to work Met a girl in town put some money down On a little house with a yard Our little boy was due in September But he came early in July For eighteen days all I remember Was settin' there at his side Sayin' son open up your eyes Just open up your eyes 'Cause you came here to live You didn't come here to die Son you came here to live please leave any comments or questions
