Happy Ever After Corey Smith
[C]Lately I?ve been singing the blues for n[G]o apparent reason. [C]
I lay around [C]on the couch piss and moan dragging everyone down.
Maybe its always been in[C] my blood stream, maybe daddy was right when he
told me, boy [C]your just like you mom keep your head up your ass all the time
I feel like a foo[F]l, kicking my self black and blue for the ch[C]oices I?ve made.
Down and out, stuck in[G] the muck sinking fast getting, worse every day.
Good lord want[C] you throw me a life line, a ray of hope in the sunshine.
Want you help me to find my happy ever after[G] amen. [F] [C]
L[C]ately taking pills by the handful, doctor told me I?d need ?em.
Yeah[C] he wrote me note said I hope you have a hell of time.
[C]But they?re too good fill me up with a warm rush [G]the news paper don?t? upset
me as much,[F] they ain?t easy[C] to swallow but its better than sleeping all day
I?m high as a kite,[F] at least for time being killing the pai[C]n in my heart,
letting go of t[G]he guilt and the shame that are tearing my life apart.

fashion,[C] can?t you fill my prescription happy ever after amen

Oh I am tired[F], tired of the struggle and tired of the th[C]at lies I?ve told
But I am scar[G]ed, scared that my story for give me will never unfold.
