The Nerve-crd  George Strait

[E]I'm glad I had the nerve to talk to you [A2]that [E]day
[A]I could just as [E]easily have [B]let you get [G#m]away
[E]In that crowded [A2]air[E]port [C#m]far from [G#m]my home [A]town
[A]If I had lost my [E]courage then you [G#m7]wouldn't [B]be [A]around
[A]I'm glad I had the [E]nerve
[E]And I'm glad he had the nerve to get down on[A2] his [E]knees
[A]And say I bought this [E]ring for you [B]won't you wear it [G#m]please
[E]My daddy sure touched [A2]some[E]thing in my [C#m]momma's [G#m]heart [A]somehow.
[A]If he hadn't [E]I sure wouldn't [G#m7]be here [B]with you [A]now
[A]I'm glad he had the [E]nerve
[E]Or I never would have [A]lived like this
Or [E]learned like this
Or [A]laughed like this
Or [B]loved like this
I'm [E]glad he had the nerve to sail [A2]across [E]the sea
My [A]great-grandaddy's [E]great-grandpa in [B]eighteen thirty-[G#m]three
He [E]met an Indian [A2]mai[E]den in the [C#m]Smoky [G#m]Mountain [A]mist
[A]If they hadn't [E]crossed that line [G#m7]I would [B]not [A]exist
[A]I'm glad they had the [E]nerve
[E]And I'm glad He had the nerve while staring [A2]into [E]space
To [A]give this uni[E]verse a [B]time and a [G#m]place
[E]With one tiny [A2]ato[E]m or an [C#m]Adam [G#m]and an [A]Eve
[A]However you look [E]at it what[G#m7]ever [B]you [A]believe
[A]I'm glad He had the [E]nerve
[E]Or we never would have [A]lived like this
Or [E]learned like this
Or [A]laughed like this
Or [B]loved like this
Thank [A]God He had the [E]nerve
[E]And I'm glad I had the nerve to talk to you [A2]that [E]day
