The Fine Line  Montgomery Gentry

THE FINE LINE[(3)]
Montgomery Gentry
Sumbitted by: Mischief810
This song can be played in both standard tuning and double drop D tuning. It's
easy to play and sing. It's also fun to play with different interpretations of
the song.
All three verses are played using a strum of the D Major chord. When Eddie begins
singing "so I think I'll just set here..." return to the D Major pattern. Listen
to the recording to get the strum pattern right.
Tuning: EADGBe
Intro:
[C] [G] [D] [F] [C] [D]  
Verse 1:
[D]I told my mom goodbye when I was eighteen.
She told me bye for good at age sixty-three.
She was an angel right here on earth;
There was sure a fine line between heaven and her.
Verse 2:
[D]I went and married the woman I loved.
Three years of me later she had enough.
Just one more angel I didn't deserve;
There was sure a fine line between heaven and her.
Chorus:
Feels like [C]everything [G]I love I [D]lose.
God [F]giveth and [G]He takes aw[D]ay.
[C]Prayin's the [G]right thing to [D]do,
But I [F]don't feel like [G]prayin' tod[A]ay...
So I [D]think I'll just set here,
And drink for a spell...
Cause there's sure a fine line between heaven and hell.
(Play intro chords twice, with emphasis!)
Verse 3:
[D]Now I'm headed nowhere ninety nine miles an hour.
In a '62 Dodge with three hundred horsepower.
If she holds together I might get the nerve...
(silence)
To cross that fine line between heaven and her.
Chorus:
Feels like [C]everything [G]I love I [D]lose.
God [F]giveth and [G]He takes aw[D]ay.
[C]Prayin's the [G]right thing to [D]do,
But I [F]don't feel like [G]prayin' tod[A]ay...
So m[D]aybe I'll just slow down and drink for a spell.
(silence)
'Cause there's sure a fine line between heaven and hell.
Outro:
Play intro chords once again, with emphasis!
This is how I play the song using only one acoustic guitar. It can also be played
using Double Drop D tuning: DADGBd, and play the D chord shown below. But you'll
have to revoice the G Major chord in the Chorus to make it sound right. Another
cool substitution is to arpeggiate an Asus2 at the end of the chorus.
[D]xx0230
[Asus2]x02200
