If I Were Brave  Shawn Colvin

G7sus/D = XX0011
C = X32010
INTRO: F, C/E, F, C/E, F, D7/F#, G
[F]All the happy [C/E]couples on their [G7sus/D]way to New Or-l[C]eans
Re-mi[F]nding me of when[G] we got a-[C/E]long[F]
They're [F]only renting tim[C/E]e and space to[G7sus/D] fill up with their[C] dreams
And [F]dreams are what they'll have[G] when they have gone[C/E] [F]
How could it [F]be that I was[C/E] born without a clu[G7sus/D]e to carry o[C]n
And [F]still it is the sam[G]e now I am older[C/E] [F]
Armed with just a wil[C/E]l and then this [G7sus/D]love for singing s[C]ongs
And [F]minding less and les[G]s if I am [C/E]colder[F]
But I [F]have this funny [C/E]ache and it's [F]burning in my [C/E]chest
And it [F]spreads just like a [G]fire inside my [C/E]body[F]
Is it [F]something God left [C/E]out in my [F]spirit or my [C/E]flesh
Would I be [F]saved if I were [G]brave and had a [C/E]baby?[F]
It was never [F]clear what would come [C/E]next
but that's the [G7sus/D]risk and that's the [C]test
And yo[F]u were the only on[G]e so far to [C/E]follow[F]
And no one talks ab[C/E]out when one might [G7sus/D]stop and need to [C]rest
Or how [F]long you sit a[G]lone before you [F]
stop looking [G7sus/D]back It's like you're[F] waiting for God[G]ot
And then you [F]pick your sorry [G]ass up off the [C]street and
[C/E]Go...[F] [C/E] [F] [C/E] [F]
And [F]what the hell is [C/E]this? Who [F]made this bloody [C/E]mess?
And [F]someone always [G]answers like a [C/E]martyr[F]
Is it [F]something you should [C/E]know, did you [F]never do your [C/E]best
Would you be [F]saved if you were [G]brave and just t[C/E]ried harder[F]
So [F]now I ride the [C/E]aught-one-thirty-[G7sus/D]five to New Orl[C]eans
I [F]float a mile a[G]bove life's toil and tro[C/E]uble[F]
A thousand lonely [C/E]lifetimes I still wa[G7sus/D]it and then go [C]on
A [F]clown to enter[G]tain the happy [C/E]couples[F] [C/E] [F] [C/E] [F] [C]
