The Impossible Joe Nichols
[A]My dad chased [A(add9)]monsters from the [D]dark and checked underneath my [A]bed,
And he could [A/Ab]lift me with one [F#m]arm way up [D]over [E]top his [A]head.
He could [A(add9)]loosen rusty [D]bolts with a quick turn of his [A]wrench,
He pulled [A/Ab]splinters from his [F#m]hand and [D]never [E]even [D]flinched.
In 13 years I'd [F#m]never seen him [F#m(add9)]cry,
But the [Bm]day that grandpa [A/Db]died, I [D]realized.[E]
Unsinkable [A]ships sink,
Unbreakable [E]walls break,
Sometimes the [F#m]things you think would [F#m7]never happen
[D]Happen just like [E]that.
Unbendable [A]steel bends,
If the [E]fury of the wind [F+]is un[D]stoppable.
I've [Bm]learned to never [A/Db]underesti[D]mate
[E] The im[A]possible.
[A]Then there [A(add9)]was my junior [D]year, Billy had a brand new [A]car.
It was [A/Ab]late the road was [F#m]wet, I guess the [D]curve was [E]just too [A]sharp.
I walked a[A(add9)]way without a [D]scratch, they brought the helicopter [A]in,
Billy [A/Ab]couldn't feel his [F#m]legs, they said he'd [D]never [E]walk a[D]gain.
But Billy said he would and his [F#m]mom and daddy [F#m(add9)]prayed,
And the [Bm]day we gradu[A/Db]ated, he stood [D]up to say:[E]
[A]INST[A(add9)]RUMENTAL[F#m] [D] [E]
So don't [D]tell me that its over,
Don't give [F#m]up on you and [F#m(add9)]me.
'Cause there's [Bm]no such thing as [A/Db]hopeless,
If [D]you believe..[E].
