On the Fence  Brendan Benson

"On the Fence"- Brendan Benson and Ashley Monroe
Intro: A
[A]Well I'm afraid that it's true, I'm leavin' you[D]
[A]But rest assured, tomorrow I'll be home.[E]
[A]Cuz you know I never could, I never was no good[D]
[A]Lord knows at bein' on[E] my own.[A]
[A]Never was the type to want to settl[D]e down,
[A]But never had the nerve to ramble on.[E]
So I'm[A] leaving here tonight, but I'll be back[D] before dawn
So leave a ligh[A]t on, and keep my su[E]pper warm.[A]
[A]Never been a fighter or a lover,
[A]never thought that either made much sense.[E]
and I [A]can't decide on this [A7]way or the other,[D] [D7]
So I [A]live my life just sittin o[E]n this fence.[A]
[A]and today I feel restless, tomorrow I [D]won't fret this,
[A]There's no tellin' what this boy will do,[E]
[A]but baby guarantee, the moment that I'[D]m free,
[A]that's when I'll come crawlin' b[E]ack to you.[A]
and [E]I don't know how you can stand it, I don't know why you s[D]tay,[A]
but you[E] know I never planned it, to turn out this way,[D] [A]
and [E]I would understand it, if you couldn't take an[D]y more,[A]
of my al[D]ways keeping one foot out the door.[E]
[A]and I want to get married, I want to raise[D] a family,
[A]do like all the other people do,[E]
But what[A] self-respecting woman, would [A7]ever have me and not stab me,[D] [D7]
When [A]I wanna have my cake and eat it[E] too[D7]
