Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

When She Wakes Up-crd  Tim McGraw

With a [G]trembling pen in hand I [Em]try the best I can
To [C]write down all the reasons I cant [D]stay [D7]
I [G]hope she'll understand I can't [Em] leave her like a man
Cause a [C]man would never leave her this [D7]way

Verse 2 (same chord progression as verse 1)
A note of things I should have said lays beside her sleepin head
As I turn and make my way off in the night
By the time the mornin's breakin, my heart will still be achin'
Every time I think of what I've left behind (pause)

Cause I don't [Em]wanna see me [Bm]leavin in her [C]eyes
And I can't [D]stand to watch her [C]watch me make her [G]cry [D]
And I don't [Em]know a right way [Bm]I can do her [C]wrong
So I don't wanna [Am7]be here in the mornin
[D]when she wakes [D7]up and finds me [G] gone  G   Em  C D-D7

Verse 3and 4 (same chord prog. as 1 and 2)
It hurts to know how much she'll hurt, I've told myself things could be
And I've convinced myself she's better off this way
By the time she finds I'm gone I'll be a long long way from home
When she reads the note of things I couldn't say

Chorus then G Em
Lord I don't wanna [Am7]be here in the mornin
[D]when she wakes [D7]up and finds me [G]gone
Outro: G Em C D G

this is my second attempt at transcription, i'm still learning, so please
help with any corrections.
at the end of the second line of the first verse and others like that
line, you can also go from D to Dsus2 instead of D7, both sound ok, just
pick up your middle finger. whatever works for you.
