Against The Grain Garth Brooks
[D]folks call me a maverick, guess i ain't too diplomatic,
[D]i just ne[C]ver been the ki[G]nd to go al[D]ong.
[D]avoiding confrontation for the sake of conformation
[D]and i'll ad[C]mit i tend to si[G]ng a different so[A]ng.
[A]but someti[Bm]mes you just can't b[A]e afraid to we[G]ar a different hat.
If colu[E7]mbus had complied this ol' world might still be f[A]lat.
[D]nothing ventured, nothing g[F]ained.
sometim[G]es you've got to [C]go ag[G]ainst the gr[D]ain.
well, i have been accused of making my own rules.
there must be rebel blood just a-runnin' through my veins.
but i ain't no hypocrite, what you see is what you get.
and that's the only way i know to play the game.
old noah took much ridicule building his great arc.
but after 40 days and 40 nights, he was looking pretty smart.
sometimes its best to brave the wind and rain.
by havin' the strength to go against the grain.
w[D]ell there's m[E]ore folks than a few who share my point of few.
but they're wo[D]rried if they're go[A]nna sink or sw[E]im.
t[E]hey'd like to buck the system, but the deck is stacked against them.
and they're a lit[D]tle scared to g[A]o out on a li[B]mb.
but if you're g[C#m]onna make a d[B]ifference, if you're g[A]onna leave your mark.
you can't fo[F#7]llow like a bunch of sheep, you've gotta listen to your h[B]eart.
[E]go bustin' in like ol' john [G]wayne.
somet[A]imes you've got to g[D]o aga[A]inst the [E]grain.
[E]nothing ventured nothing [G]gained,
somet[A]imes you've got to g[D]o agai[A]nst the g[E]rain.
