Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Bus To Birmingham  John Montgomery

Capo on 1st fret.
I think this is pretty close, if not, any contributions are appreciated.
  [E]She didn't see me see her cryin
  [F#]As she sat there by the window
  On [A]a southbound greyhound leavin' town, [E] [Bb]
  Th[E]e hardest thing I've ever done,
  Was to walk away and let [F]that woman go
  Cause she came clo[A]se to turnin' me around, [Bb]
  Now[E] I know she missed her Mama,
  Cau[F#]se thats the kind of life she comes from,
  Ain[A]'t no kind of life I'm ever gonna have,[E] [Bb]
  She[E] said she'd call me from the station,
  [F#]But I'll be gone before she get there,
  And I'l[A]l  see her every time I'm lookin' back, [Bb]
                           [A]           [E] [A] [Bb]            Chorus: Heav[E]en knows I ain't no angel, And I don't always do the
right thing,
                                      [A] [F#] [A] [Bb]                 [A]        And right now I [F#]know that she don't understand but
I'll sleep better knowin,
                                 [A]     [F#] [A]         [Bb]           [E]      The only thing I ever loved is on that bus to
Tonight I'll slip back in the shadows,
And I'll sip a glass of whiskey
And I'll try to keep from whisperin' her name,
Buth there's some highways I ain't driven
And there's some towns that I ain't lived in,
And there's some times that I can't get out of the rain
And Lord I can't bare to break
Another promise that I made her
So I made out like I wanted her to go
And I'm better off believin'
Thats she's better off without me,
'Cause I don't want her to see me do her wrong
Repeat Chorus
Ending: Heave[A]n knows I don't alway[E]s do the right thin[Bb]g [E]
              And [A]right now I know s[E]he don't understand  [A] [Bb]
               But I[A]'ll sleep better knowin [E]
                The [F#]only thing I ever loved,
                 Is on that bus [A]to B[Bb]irming[A]ham [Bb] [E]
