Back of the Bottom Drawer   Chely Wright

 Intro - (Cadd9) - (Asus4)-(A) - (G/F#) - (G) - (Dsus4)-(D)



 (verse 1)

 In the [(Asus2)]back of the bottom dra[(Dm/E)]wer,

 Of the d[(Asus2)]resser by our b[(Dm/E)]ed,

 Is a[(Asus2)] box of odds and en[(Dm/E)]ds,

 That I have alw[(G)]ays kept,

 But the [(Em7)]man who sleeps beside me,

 Doesn't k[(D)]now it's even there,

 Little pi[(Bm)]eces of my past,

 That I s[(Asus4)]houldn't have to shar[(A)]e,




 (A) [(D)]napkin that is st[(Bm)]ained with time,

 Has a p[(G)]oem on it that didn[(A)]'t quite rhyme,

 [(Bm)] But it made me cr[(A)]--y, [(G)] [-] [(A)]

 In a d[(D)]ear Jane letter from a dif[(Bm)]ferent guy,

 He br[(G)]oke up with me and he tol[(A)]d me,

 I'm not [(Bm)]always ri-[(A)]-ght,[(G)]

 And a [(Cadd9)]stolen key from an old hotel room d[(Asus4)]oor,[-] [(A)]

 [(G/F#)]In the bac[(G)]k, of[(A)] the bottom drawer,[(D)]



 (verse 2)

 [(A)]I don't keep these thi[(Dm/E)]ngs,

 Cause I'm l[(A)]onging to go ba[(Dm/E)]ck,

 I k[(A)]eep them because I wa[(Dm/E)]nt to stay right where[(G)] I'm at,

 I'm re[(Em7)]minded of my rights and wrongs,

 I don't [(D)]want to mess this up,

 But I wo[(Bm)]uldn't know where I belong,

 Wit[(Asus4)]hout this box of stuf[(A)]f,




 (A) [(D)]birthday card from my f[(Bm)]irst boyfriend,

 He signed it I l[(G)]ove you so I [(A)]gave in,

 [(Bm)]Yeah we went too fa[(A)]r, in his daddy'[(G)]s car, [(A)]

 And those Mardi [(D)]Gras beads from ni[(Bm)]nety-eight,

 We da[(G)]nced all night, stayed ou[(A)]t so late,

 [(Bm)]We thought we were star[(A)]s, closing down [(G)]the bars.[(A)]

 That c[(Cadd9)]hampagne was cheap but still I've got that c[(Asus4)]ork. [-] [(A)]

 [(G/F#)]In the bac[(G)]k, of[(A)] the bottom drawer,[(D)]




 [(Am7)]I'm not trying to hide these things from the man[(G)] I love today,

 But I'm a [(Bb)]better woman for him, thanks to my yes[(A)]terdays,




 So I t[(D)]ry to give more tha[(Bm)]n I take,

 And I b[(G)]ite my tongue fight the urg[(A)]e to say,

 It's [(Bm)]my way, or no[(A)] way at all. [(G)]

 And[(Cadd9)] now I cherish love a whole lot m[(Asus4)]ore.[-] [(A)]

 [(G/F#)]Cause of what's, in the bac[(G)]k, o[(A)]f the bottom drawer.[(D)]
