Better Off Alone Casey Donahew Band
Casey Donahew Band - Better Off Alone
Intro: D Cadd9 G
(pick twice through, then strum twice)
[D]Empty on the hours
And [Cadd9]empty on the [G]days
I've [D]locked up all the doors
[Cadd9]Take me on my [G]way
Down a [D]broken road of questions
That [Cadd9]lead me to a [G]lie
To a [D]cold night in December
When we [Cadd9]both sat down to [D]cry
Now will you[D] carve my name upon a stone?
Will you [Cadd9]lay me down to [G]rest?
Do you [D]think I'll see my father's father
Do you [Cadd9]think I'll pass his [G]test?
Will you [D]whisper "Lord please keep me,
always [Cadd9]walk right by my [G]side"?
Will you [D]place the coins upon my eyes
To pay the [Cadd9]boatman for the r[D]ide?
Well I was s[D]tanding in the [A]drizzling [D]rain
Just long[D] enough to wash a[A]way my [D]pain
And rea[D]lize that she's [A]never coming [Bm]home
She said "I won't come [G]back"
I said "Don't come[A] back, I'm better off a[D]lone"
Break - D Cadd9 G
She called me from a pay phone
South of San Antone
And I could hear somebody talking
But she swore she was alone
You know it sounded so familiar
I pray to God that I am wrong
I always thought she'd leave me
I never dreamed he'd go along
Solo - D Cadd9 G (X2)
I'm better off alone
