Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Life Is Messy  Rodney Crowell

When you're the last one to [C]know [F]what everybody [C]knows
Shame falls [G]down
When you're the last one to [C]see [F]what everybody [C]sees
Shame falls [G]down [F]like rain falls [C]down

Life is [F]messy, it's starting to repr[C]ess me
Time and [C/B]time a[Am]gain I [Am/G#]think I'm gonna [D/F#]win
And it blows up in my [G]face

When your last hope is gone and you're feelin’ so unable
Shame falls down
When your heart won't open up and there's love left on the table
Fame falls down like rain falls down

Life is messy, it's starting to distress me
They sell it in the press, they smell it on your breath
But you keep on comin’ clean
Life is [F]messy

I don't wanna go back [C]home, [F]the streets are lined in [C]rubble
A [C/B]heart that's made of [Am]ston[/G]e  [F]can lead you into [G]trouble

Life is messy, it's trying to depress me
They can kick you in the nuts, they can hit you where it hurts
Don't get down on your knees

Life is Messy, I feel like Elvis Presley
At a very early age they put you in a cage
Ad they push you out on stage
Life Is Messy
