Why Ain't I Running  Garth Brooks

Strum a measure each of the A and then D chord as shown below
 Intro: A-D-A-D-A-D-A-D

Verse 1: I can hea[A]r that highway calling
[D] [A] 
[D] As I watch the sunrise crawling across her shoulder
This [A]is usually goodbye
[D] [A] 
[D] And yet those words I just can't find here as I hold her
Option: (Strum once) D
She's like no other women
Option: (Strum once) E
That I have ever known before
(Strum once) D
And it ain't me to see the morning sun
From t[E]his side of the door
Chorus: Why [A]aInt I running, Why aint[D] I gone[F#] [E]
[A]How does she hold me Without hol[D]ding on[F#] [E]
In love or a fight[D], she's stronger than strong[E]
[F#] [E] [D] 
Somethings not right if there aint nothing wrong
Its got m[A]e wond[D]ering,why aint I running[E]
Why aint I gone[A] [D] [A] [D]
Verse 2: All th[A]ose worlds I left behind me
[D] [A] 
[D] Praying they would never find me and my freedom
But if they stood[A] right here beside me
[D] [A] 
[D] They would never recognize me for all that she's done
Once happi[D]ness was only
Whenever I was[E] on my own
So now why do [D]I feel lonely
Any tim[E]e that I'm alone
[A] [D] [A] [E] 
No,[E] they've never built a [D]wall that high
Or made a [E]chain that strong
And God ai[D]n't never made a place
I felt [E]like I belong
