Wish I Hadn't Stayed So Long  Hayes Carll

Intro: A Asus A Asus
Shooting [A]stars and whiskey bottles all [D]scattered across the [A]yard
I'd have [D]stayed back home in [A]Houston if I'd known it'd be this [E]hard
Ah but [A]as it is I'm busted broke [D]down across the [A]bay
And I [D]might not make De[A]cember if we keep carrying on this [E]way
Pretty [A]girls and deep depressions keep [D]falling from the [A]sky
I got [D]all the time in [A]heaven but no sense to wonder [E]why
And the [A]nights have all gone crazy and the [D]bars have all shut [A]down
One [D]day I swear I'll [A]blow it all, pack up, and leave this [E]town
And some[D]times I get so [A]tired of [D]telling right from [A]wrong
[A]Hey, I'm glad I [E]came, just wish I [D]hadn't stayed s[A]o long
[A] [Asus] [A] [Asus]  
Here I [A]am in Music City, long [D]nights and neon [A]signs
And I [D]can't seem to re[A]member what I came so far to [E]find
Police [A]cars and paper money motel [D]rooms and ciga[A]rettes
Yeah, they [D]tell you, you ain't [A]nothin' just in case you might for[E]get
I can [A]hear the country music in the [D]window up a[A]bove
Do they [D]do it for the [A]money, do they do it for the [E]love?
Bourbon [A]eyes and stolen pistols seems [D]all that comes my [A]way
I'm gonna [D]burn down all my [A]bridges, grab a car, and drive [E]away
And some[D]times I can't [A]believe I did [D]all that for a [A]song
A E D A (solo)
Hey, I'm glad I came, just wish I hadn't stayed so long
Solo: A E D E D
We could [A]make Louisiana [D]in two hours' [A]time
We could [D]pull off of the [A]highway by the big casino [E]sign
We could [A]take up all our wishes and [D]bet 'em all on [A]black
Hit the [D]lights of Missis[A]sippi with the south wind at our [E]back
And it's [D]always been the [A]same down [D]every road I've [A]gone
[A]Hey, I'm glad I [E]came, just wish I [D]hadn't stayed s[A]o long
[A] [Asus] [A] [Asus] [A] [Asus] [A]
