A Good Man  Emerson Drive

[D]I don't ne[G]ed a whole lot of[A] money,
But I wou[G]ldn't turn the lotter[D]y down
I just n[G]eed a little green in my pocket  [A]
So I can b[G]uy my buddies a r[D]ound
All I w[G]ant is a place to lay my [A]head
With the w[G]oman I love lyin[D]' in my bed

[Bm]Kind of understated
[G]My dreams aren't that co[A]mplicated

[D]I want to be the o[A]ne, when [Em]all is said and[G] done
Who li[D]ved a good life, loved a [A]good wife
[Em]Always helped som[G]eone in trouble
On the d[D]ay they lay me down    [A]
I want ev[Em]eryone to gather[G] round, and say
[D]He was a father, br[A]other, neighbo[Em]r and a fri[G]end
He was a good man

[D]  [G]  [A]  [G]                               

[D]Used to dr[G]eam of bein' a r[A]ock star
And se[G]ein' the world in st[D]yle
Used to dr[G]eam of havin' a f[A]ast car
And dr[G]ivin' that miracle m[D]ile
But I've heard t[G]ell those streets aren't pa[A]ved in gold
They're fu[G]ll of potholes and e[D]mpty souls
Who n[Bm]ever learn, l[G]ove is something yo[A]u gotta earn
[D]I want to be the o[A]ne, when [Em]all is said and[G] done
Who li[D]ved a good life, loved a [A]good wife
[Em]Always helped som[G]eone in trouble
On the d[D]ay they lay me down    [A]
I want ev[Em]eryone to gather[G] round, and say
[D]He was a father, br[A]other, neighbo[Em]r and a fri[G]end
He was a good man


[A]When I'm gone I want to [Bm]leave a legacy
Of l[G]ove and laughs and ho[A]nesty behind me
Beh[A]ind me
[D]I want to be the o[A]ne, when [Em]all is said and[G] done
Who li[D]ved a good life, loved a [A]good wife
[Em]Always helped som[G]eone in trouble
On the d[D]ay they lay me down    [A]
I want ev[Em]eryone to gather[G] round, and say
[D]He was a father, br[A]other, neighbo[Em]r and a fri[G]end
He was a good man


Repeat D G A G (x3) over ad-lib, end on D
