Sometimes A Man Takes A Drink   Trace Adkins

Trace Adkins

Intro: (A)  (A)  (A)  (D) (G)  (A)

Last (A) night he fell down but he got right back (A7) up
(D) Had one too many I (A) guess
To(D)morrow he won't re(A)member 
To(F#m)night he just (D) wants to for(E)get
The (A) pressure he's under the hell he's been (A7) in
The (D) knife twisted up in his (A) gut
When (D) this is all over he's (A) gonna get sober
Right (F#m) now he's just (D) down on his (A) luck

  (D) Sometimes a man takes a drink
  So he can (A) just throw his head back and laugh
  At the (D) things he can't change
  Like the (G) bills he can't (D) pay and (A) all of those ghosts from the (E) past
  It's the (A) crutch he leans on when things have gone wrong
  Life (A7) didn't turn out like he (D) planned
  Sometimes a man takes a (A) drink
  (F#m) Sometimes a (D) drink takes the (A) man

Not that long ago he could take it or leave it
Now he wonders when it all changed
When did he stop being happy go lucky 
And become a prisoner in chains
Trapped behind bars no longer in charge
Where did the good times all go
He knows it's got him cause he's on the bottom
Real close to out of control

Repeat Chorus

(A7) Some(D)times a man takes a (F#m) drink
(D) Sometimes a (E) drink takes the (A) man
