Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Drunk Or Dead  New Amsterdams

[C]Little did I know it t[F]hen

The p[Am]ictures on the heads of [G]pins

‘Be [C]easier than living [F]is
[G]Easier to watch you die
[C]Lost what little luck was [F]left
It’s [Am]not enough to pay the [G]rent
[C]Not enough to force re[F]pentance
[G]Not enough to make you pray
[F]And don’t tell [G]me ‘bout the[C] sins of [F]man
[Am]I’ve felt the sti[G]ng of God’s right h[C]and
I find him after school in bed
And don’t know if he’s drunk or dead
A slow but steady breath means
Live to wreck another day

It’s terrible to cross my mind
That I should do him in this time
And I could find a better life
Become a burden on the state

You can’t run when it’s all you know
You’ll just have to wait to go

(Guitar just plays C for the bridge)

And you can’t hurt me ‘cause I’ve been true
Your horrid life caught up to you

But I got bruises that you can’t see
If there’s a god, take him from me.

End on C
