Intro/Bridge: A(hammer the B string)
D7(h B string) E(h D string)
[A]The money would be pretty good if a q[E]uart of milk was still a dollar
[Bm]Or even if a quart of milk was still a qu[A]art
And the [D]hours well, I don't mind
How they[A] creep on by like an old love of mine
Its th[Bm]e years that simply di[E]sappear that are doin' me [A]in
[D]Guess I mar[E]ried too young, yeah 1[A]9 was just too yo[D]ung
[Bm]But sometimes you meet someone and your g[A]uts just burn
I[D]ts not that I dont love him a[E]nymore
Its just th[A]at when I hear him coming th[D]rough that front door
My[Bm] heart doesnt r[E]ace like it did once be[A]fore
Mm[D]mmmm... But I got a [Dm]horse out in the [A]country
ahhhh [Bm]yea.. I get to s[E]ee him[D] every second Su[A]nday
[D]He comes when I c[Bm]all him, Y[Dm]eah he knows his n[A]ame
[Bm]Someday day I'll sa[E]ddle up and the t[Bm]wo of us will r[E]ide a[A]way
INTRO/BRIDGE(run it off the "A" at the end of the chorus)
[A]This weather I could almost stand
If the [E]sun would shine a little brighter
[Bm]Or even if the sun would shine at a[A]ll
[D]But lately it just s[E]eems to me that this l[A]ife has lost its [D]mystery
and these[Bm] cold fall mornings seem to [E]bite just a little bit [A]harder
[Bm]And all my friends have set[Dbm]tled down
Become their m[Bm]others and fathers witho[A]ut a sound
Except for Ca[E]thy
She bought a o[D]ne way
su[E]bway ticket
and le[A]ft us all behind
T[A]his town wouldnt be so bad
If a[E] girl could trust her instincts
[Bm]Or even if a g[E]irl could trust a [A]boy
