This Wreck Of A Life  Sam Roberts

You know that b[G]ad l[F#m]uck will e[Em]at you u[D]p
[G]Whe[A]n’s it gonna end?
[G]  I twisted everyt[F#m]hing I could   [Em]
Out of words  [D]
In real life my c[G]olo[A]urs never blend  [G]   [A]
When I was a [D]boy I s[G]aid to mys[A]elf
That I’d never [D]lean on a[G]nyone e[F#m]lse
Oh, but [D]I was wrong
Yeah [G]I was wrong
And my [A]mother took me by the hands and then


[D]Oh, [G]oh how I p[A]rayed
That the [D]good Lord would [G]come and t[F#m]ake me aw[A]ay
From this [D]mess of a [G]life that I’m i[A]n
And I fell to my [D]knees [G]oh and I c[A]ried
As the [D]lightning rose u[G]p from the e[F#m]arth to the s[A]ky
In this [D]wreck of a l[G]ife that I’m [A]in
In this [D]mess of a li[G]fe that I’m i[A]n
[G]Come on you got a l[F#m]ot to give
A [Em]lot to live for
And [D]hope it all gets [G]bet[A]ter
You [G]twisted everything you [F#m]can out of [Em]anything
I [D]know it’s gonna get [G]bet[A]ter     [G]   [A]
And I’m so sick and [D]tired of l[G]ying ar[A]ound
We’re all waiting for s[D]omeone to l[G]ight up this t[F#m]own
Oh, it [D]won’t be long
It [G]won’t be long
And I [A]know I should have left town but I [D]stayed
[G]Oh how I p[A]rayed
That the g[D]ood Lord would [G]come and t[F#m]ake me aw[A]ay
From this [D]mess of a [G]life that I’m i[A]n
And I fell to my [D]knees o[G]h and I [A]cried
As the [D]lightning rose u[G]p from the e[F#m]arth to the s[A]ky
In this [D]wreck of a [G]life that I’m i[A]n
In this [D]mess of a l[G]ife that I’m i[A]n
[D]Oh and it feels like I’m writing a bo[G]ok and I can’t get ins[A]pired
Some[D]times
It seems that I’m breathing in sm[G]oke and my lungs are so t[A]ired
Oh [D]well
I’ll just sleep it all off and then [G]hope that it don’t get me
[A]fired
And I’m asking you [D]please
Oh [G]oh how I [A]prayed
That the [D]good Lord would [G]come and t[F#m]ake me a[A]way
From this [D]mess of a [G]life that I’m i[A]n
And I fell to my [D]knees o[G]h and I [A]cried
As the [D]lightning rose u[G]p from the [F#m]earth to the [A]sky
In this [D]wreck of a [G]life that I’m i[A]n
And [D]oh, [G]oh how I [A]prayed
That the [D]good Lord would [G]come and [F#m]take me aw[A]ay
From this [D]mess of a [G]life that I’m [A]in
And I fell to my k[D]nees o[G]h and I [A]cried
As the [D]lightning rose [G]up from the [F#m]earth to the [A]sky
In this [D]wreck of a [G]life that I’m [A]in
In this [D]mess of a [G]life that I’m [A]in
In this [D]wreck of a [G]life that I’m [A]in
In this [D]wreck of a [G]life that I’m [A]in
In this [D]mess of a [G]life that I’m [A]in
In this [D]mess of a [G]life that I’m [A]in  (and I fell to my knees)
In this [D]wreck of a [G]life that I’m [A]in
In this [D]wreck of a [G]life that I’m [A]in
In this [D]wreck of a [G]life that I’m [A]in
In this [D]wreck of a [G]life that I’m [A]in      [D]
