Montgomery Gentry - I Never Thought I'd Live This Long
G/B = x20033
G6/A = x02033
 Intro - Cadd9 - G - D - Cadd9 - G - D

(verse 1)
I've t[Cadd9]reated this ol b[G]ody l[D]ike a stolen car,
[Cadd9]Just some old disp[G]osable mac[D]hine,
[Cadd9] Pedal to the m[G]etal and a tr[D]ail of broken hearts,
Yea I'd [Cadd9]fill it up with alm[G]ost anyth[D]ing,
My mo[F]tto was live f[G]ast and go out str[D]ong,
But I [Cadd9]never thought that I'd li[G]ve this lon[D]g,
(verse 2)
[Cadd9]Once I had a w[G]oman and she tr[D]eated me real good,
The [Cadd9]kinda love I n[G]ever will rep[D]lace,
[Cadd9] One day I thought [G]I ain't seen the wo[D]rld the way I should,
So[Cadd9] one night I got [G]up and steped a[D]way,
I k[F]new there'd be some l[G]onely's commin [D]on,
But I [Cadd9]never thought that I'd li[G]ve this lo[D]ng,
T[D]here have been many [Cadd9]times I really should have d[G/B]ied,
But s[D]omehow I su[Cadd9]rvived on my mist[Cadd9-G/B-Cadd9-G/B-Cadd9-D]akes,
They [D]say it makes me s[Cadd9]tronger, but why does it take lo[G/B]nger,
Gettin [Bb]up these days[Bb-C-D],
 (lead - D - Cadd9 - G/B-G6/A - D - Cadd9 - G/B-G6/A - D)

(verse 3)
[Cadd9] Yea I'm o[G]ld enough to h[D]ave a few regrets,
I'm[Cadd9] still young e[G]nough to have my dr[D]eams,
[Cadd9]Maybe that's the re[G]ason that my l[D]ife ain't over yet,
All the p[Cadd9]laces and f[G]aces I ain't s[D]een,
I pr[F]obably won't have ti[G]me to see them a[D]ll,
But t[Dm]hen again I never thought I'd [Cadd9]live this long[D],
Outro - D - Cadd9 - G/B-G6/A - D
