We Dared the Lightning  The Bellamy Brothers

written by Vanessa Hill
NOTE: Some lyrical help much appreciated (especially the bridge)
INTRO: D G Cadd9 (2x)
[D]Mama said slow down, but I was goin' to fast to listen
[D]Said what goes 'round comes around, but only time could get my attention
But as I l[G]ook back now over advice well g[D]iven
I can't help w[G]onderin' how it is that I[A]'m still livin'
I had some w[G]ild friends, we did some cr[D]azy things
We kept some [A]long late hours, we d[G]ared the l[D]ightnin'
We took it [G]to the edge, runnin' f[D]ull speed ahead
We laid our l[A]ives on the line, we dar[G]ed the li[D]ghtnin'
[D] [G] [Cadd9]  
It really blows my mind, I don't know how that I survived
Still I go back from time to time, visit others by their graveside
Wish mama had lived to see now I have kids of my own
She'd be laughin' at me but mama'd never cast a stone
[A]It was like playin' Russian roulette, always [G]braggin' and bluffin'[D]
[A]Racin' 'round in our gin bullets, [G]we never stopped at no[A]thin'
We laid our l[A]ives on the line, we dared[G] the ligh[D]tnin'
[D]We dared the lightnin', w[D]e dared the lightnin'[D] [G] [Cadd9] [D]
[D]We dared the lightnin'[G] [Cadd9] [D]
(repeat and fade)
