Half Way Up  Clint Black



































[A]I've seen it goin' 'round when you get bad news

Thinkin' that you found a darker shade of blue
[G]Lookin' for the light and it's a [D]long way back
You know without a fight you're gonna [C]fade to [A]black
[A]Never was a man that ever felt this way

one who couldn't stand to live another day
[G]hard times seem to have the [D]corner on you
but you can rise from the [C]ashes [A]too

Chorus
When I'm [D]on my knees and [C]everything has [G]gotten me [A]beat
and even [D]I believe I'm [C]never gonna [G]find my [A]feet
Two [D]ways you can go you can ask anybody a[A]round
one mans [G]half way up is an[E]other mans half way [A]down

Verse 2
[A]Now you may decide it's a losin' game

even in your stride you're gonna call it lame
[G]Gettin' one leg up when it's [D]said and done
is the hardest part no matter [C]how you [A]run
[A]If you can walk away from a crash and burn

you'll appreciate every step you earn
[G]and if you feel the ground is [D]gainin' on you
you're already bound to take a [C]different [A]view

Repeat Chorus

Bridge
[D]One mans ceiling is an[A]other mans floor
[D]One mans wall could be an[A]other mans door
[C]One mans smile is an[D]other mans frown
and there are [F]miles of half way [E]up and half way [A]down
