Speed Trap Town  Jason Isbell

Verse 1
She said "it's [D]none of my business but it [G]breaks my [D]heart"
Dropped a [D/B]dozen cheap roses in my [G]shopping [D]cart
Made it [D]out to the truck without [G]breaking [D]down
[D/B]Everybody knows you're in a [G]speed t[D]rap town
It's a [D]Thursday night but there's a[G] high school[D] game
Sneak a[D/B] bottle up the bleachers and for[G]get my[D] name
These [D]5'8" bastards run a [G]shallow[D] cross
It's a[D/B] boy's last dream and a [G]man's first[D] loss
Chorus 1
And it [Em]never did occ[G]ur to me to [D]leave, 'til [D/A]tonight
There's[Em] no one left to [G]ask if I'm [D]all right
[Em]Sleep until I'm [G]straight enough to [D]drive, then [D/A]decide
If there's [Em]anything that [G]can't be left be[D]hind
Verse 2
The [D]doctor said daddy wouldn't [G]make it a [D]year
But the[D/B] holidays are over and h[G]e's still[D] here
How [D]long can they keep you in the [G]ICU[D]
[D/B]Veins through the skin like a [G]faded ta[D]ttoo
Was a [D]tough state trooper from a [G]decade [D]back
Till that [D/B]girl who wasn't mama caused his [G]heart atta[D]ck
He didn't [D]care about us when he was [G]walkin' [D]around
Just [D/B]pulling women over in a [G]speed trap[D] town
Chorus 2
But it [Em]never did oc[G]cur to me to [D]leave, 'til to[D/A]night
When I [Em]realized he'll [G]never be all[D] right
[Em]Sign my name and [G]say my last good[D]bye, then de[D/A]cide
That there's [Em]nothing here that [G]can't be left be[D]hind
(Guitar Solo)
Verse 3
[D]Roads got blurry when the [G]sun came [D]up
[D/B]Slept a couple hours in the [G]pickup [D]truck
[D]Drank a cup of coffee by an [G]Indian m[D]ound
[D/B]Thousand miles away from that [G]speed trap[D] town
[D/B]Thousand miles away from that [G]speed trap[D] town
