[Dadd4]It's New Year's [D]Day[Dadd4]
[D]Just like the day before[Dadd4]
[D]Same old skies of [Bm]grey
[G]Same empty bottles on the [A]floor
Another year gone [Bm]by[G]
And I'm thinking once a[D]gain[Dadd4]
[D]How can I take this losing [A]hand
And somehow [G]win
Just give me one good [D]year[Dadd4] [D]
To get my feet back on the [Dadd4]ground[D]
I've been chasing grace
But [Bm]grace ain't so easily [A]found
[G]One bad hand can [D]devil a man
[G]Chase him and carry him [A]down
[G]I gotta get out of [A]here
Just give me one good [D]year[Dadd4] [D] [D] [Dadd4]
I'm burning oil
Engine's running rough
I drive from job to job
But it's never enough
I can't find the will
To just up and get away
Some kind of chains holding me down
To make me stay.
Just give me one good year.....
[D]It's a bitter [G]wind[A]
In your face every [Bm]day
It's the little [F#m]sins
That wear your soull [A]away
When you start giving[G] in
Where do the [A]promises all [Bm]go
Will your [F#m]darkest hour
Write a blank cheque on your [A]soul
Just give me one good year
To get my feet back on the ground
I've been chasing grace
But grace ain't so easily found
One bad hand can devil a man
A good one can turn him around
I gotta get out of here
Just give me one good [Bm]year
[G]I gotta get out of [A]here
Just give me one good [D]year[Dadd4] [D]
