Leaving an Angel  Corey Smith

[G]Girl I hate to hang out out to [D]dry[D/F#]
[G]With a bleeding heart and broken [D]home[D/F#]
[G]But I dropped this line to say good[D]bye
You should have saw it [A]comin, guess I was born for [G]running
[G]And I can't pay the debts I [D]owe
[G]There's many a man lookin for [D]me
[G]I keep a pistol under my pil[D]low
Feel I'm goin [A]crazy, I've been good for nothing [G]lately
Oh and [D]when I'm [G]gone, I hope you [D]mention my [A]name
I hope you care a[G]bout the man[D]
After you [G]Place the Blame[D]
Let our [D]years turn to [G]gold
And never [D]wither a[A]way and be for[G]gotten,[D] I don't wanna be fo[G]rgotten [D]
Tell our boys that I'm real proud
I watched 'em grow up tough as nails
And there'll be no cryin allowed
They'll know what to do, I'm sure they'll take good care of you
Kiss my baby girl goodbye
I'm sure she'll miss me most of all
I can't bare the thought of the tears she'll cry
She's so sweet and tender, Lord I pray she will remember
[G]I'm takin the [A]pick up truck but I left a little bit of [D]money
[G]No it Ain't to much but[A] It'll get you through the month a[D]head
[G]I left my Browning rifle and the[A] old guitar my daddy gave [D]me
[G]Put 'em up and pass 'em down,[Em] yeah they're all I have to [A]give
[A]And maybe one day you can give 'em to my grandkids [G]
I know its been hard lovin me
You've taken the scars and worn 'em well
And you'd starve yourself to feed this family
I'm sick and shameful, I'm leavin an angel
