What I Almost Was  Eric Church

[G]It was my senior year, I just[C] turne[G]d 18
I was[Em] a Friday night hero, with Divi[D]sion [G]1 dreams
[G]I had an offer on the table, a[C] four-[G]year ride
'Til th[Em]at fourth-and-two an[D]d 24[G] dive

[D]I left on a stretcher, woun[C]d up on a [G]crutch
[D]Walked on that next summer woun[C]d up gett[G]in' cut
[Em]I flipped off that [D]coach, left th[C]at school in[G] the dust
[Am]For making my[G/B] dreams go [C]a bust
[C]And I thank God I ain't[D]
What I almost was


[G]Well I moved on back home,[C] came awful[G] close
To being some[Em] son-in-law, to so[D]me C[G]EO
[G]Coulda been a corner office, country club,[C] suit-and-t[G]ie man
[Em]Answering to no one, bu[D]t her a[G]nd him

[D]I ran out on his money, ran[C] out o[G]n her love
[D]At four in the morning I [C]loaded m[G]y truck
[Em]I left my hom[D]etown in a [C]big cloud[G] of dust
[Am]I just had to[G/B] follow[C] my gut
[C]And I thank god I a[D]in't
What I almost[Am] was
[Am]    [G/B]     [C]   [D]                         
[G]Guitar town I bought this old Epiphone
[G]Started stringin' chords and words into songs
[G]Been puttin' in time on 16th Avenue
[Em]Pourin' out my heart, for[D] tips on a[G] stool
[D]I ain't making a killin' but t[C]hen there's thos[G]e nights
[D]When the song comes together and[C] hits home ju[G]st right
[Em]The crowd's on their[D] feet, cuz th[C]ey can't g[G]et enough
[Am]Of this music [G/B]I make and[C] I love
[C]And I thank God I ain't
I thank God I ain't[Em]
Yeah I t[C]hank God I ain't
[D]What I almost was
