We Carry On-crd  Tim McGraw

He[C] hasn't seen a drop of rain for months it [C9]seems
[F]Rollin' river is nothing but a trickling s[F9]tream
The [C]crops are dying in the harsh sun[C9]light
[F]The dust on his tongue is d[F9]ry
The[Am] fatted calf is down to skin and [F]bones
We carry[C] on[C9] [C]
A[C]lone in the city and she's only seven[C9]teen
The boy [F]left her black and blue in the street[F9] so mean
Just [C]twelve weeks along and she's got a life in[C9]side
[F]Says she's never ever felt so al[F9]one
[Am]She walks in the shelter, they say "w[F]elcome home"
And we carry[C] on
[Dm]When our l[C/E]ives co[F]me undone
We carry[C] on
[Dm]Cause there's pro[C/E]mise in the [F]morning sun
We carry[Am] on
As the dark surrenders[F] to the dawn[C/E]
We were[Bb] born to overco[F]me
We carry[C] on
Beyond the[F] picket fences and the oil wells
The[C] happy endings and the fairy tales
[G]Is the reality of shattered lives and b[Dm]roken dreams
C C9 C F F9 F (x2) Bb F
We carry on Carry on
It's the [C]family that grieves for a lost l[C9]oved one
It's the [F]soldier who won't leave til the job is[F9] done
It's the [C]addict trying to turn his life a[C9]round
It's [F]picking yourself off the ground when you've been knocked down
[C]   [C9]    [C]   [F]   [F9]    [F]  He s[C]tands in the field, cooled by the winds of [C9]change
She s[F]miles as her baby moves and it starts [F9]to rain
