Gone Before You Met Me  Alan Jackson

[E] [F#m] [E] [F#m]  
[Verse 1] 
[E]I had a [A]dream last [E]night
[E]I was floating d[F#m]own that black [E]water
[E]Kick back on the [A]Mississipp[E]i
[E]On a raft with o[F#m]l' Tom Sawye[E]r
[E]He got restless [A]down around Memp[E]his
[E]That's [F#m]where he left me
[E]Said I'm one [A]rambling [E]man
[E]I was gone [F#m]before you met [E]me
[E] [A] [E] [E] [F#m] [E]  
[E]And there I was [A]back in my homet[E]own
[E]That's just [F#m]how dreams [E]go
[E]Thumb in the air wanted [A]out of th[E]ere
[E]Heading m[F#m]y own ro[E]ad
[E]Well I hitched a ride with this [A]beatnik g[E]uy
[E]Said looks [F#m]like you read me
[E]My name is[A] Jack Kerou[E]ac
[E]I was gone bef[F#m]ore you met [E]me
You got your h[A]omeboys, your [E]hang-around-boys
[B]You fix that roof b[E]ut your roots to the ground-boys
[A]Pink house, the w[E]hite fence
[B]Pretty little woman, t[B]wo point five
[A]Kids, dang right, i[E]t's a good life
[B]With boys like me your[E] bound to run the wild side
[A]Like the restless wind[B] you'll never c[F#]atch me
[A]I was gone before you [E]met me
E A E E F#m E x2
[Verse 2] 
[E]And just before [A]I awok[E]e
[E]I had a [F#m]bad nightm[E]are
[E]I was on [A]some lost [E]highway and you w[F#m]ere nowhere [E]near
[E]Someone took your [A]hand I wasn't tha[E]t man
[E]Girl, it s[F#m]ure did hit me
[E]I was cussing[A] fate but it was [E]too late
[E]You were g[F#m]one before you m[E]et me
[B]Yeah, I smelled that coffee
[B]I heard you singing in the kitchen[A] [G#m] [F#m] [E]
[B]Walking in got a kiss, y[B]ou said the sink still dripping[A] [G#m] [F#m] [E]
[E]Thank God I'm still driven[F#m] [E]
You got y[A]our homeboys, [E]your hang-around-boys
[B]You fix that sink b[E]ut your roots to the ground-boys
[A]Blue house, t[E]he white fence
[B]Sweet little woman, [B]rocking that good
[A]Miss dang right, i[E]t's a fine life
[B]His restless heart [E]found a heart I can call mine
[A]I was smart enough to [E]let love catch [F#m]me
[A]So Tom and Jack just r[B]ambled on without[F#m] me
[A]'Cause I was gone before you [E]met me[A] [E]
[E]Gone gone, g[F#m]one before you met m[E]e
[E]Gone be[F#m]fore you me[E]t me
