Drinkin' Man  George Strait

first "tab" so it might be wrong but it sounds right to me.
Capo at 1 if your guitar is set to standard tuning
[F]I woke up this morning and I
[C]swore to God I'd never,
[G]ever take another drink ag[C]ain.
[F]I fought it like the devil
[C]but you know that you're in trouble
[G]when your fourteen and drunk by [C]10AM
[F]tried to hide it from my mom and dad
[C]all my friends said straighten up I just laughed and said y[G]ou don't understand
[C]that's a hell of a lot to a[G]sk of a dri[C]nkin' man
[F]at sixteen I was on my own
[C]flyin' high and staying stoned
[G]I knew everything there was to kn[C]ow
[F]I did things that I can't talk about
[C]I wore my mom and daddy out
[G]Late nights they spend prayin' for my s[C]oul
[F]Stayed sober once for nine days in a row
[C]I quit cold-turkey
[G]Dame near almost made it to t[C]en
[C]But that's a hell of a lot to[G] ask of a dri[C]nkin' man
[F]I look into the mi[C]rror, bottle in my h[G]and
[F]I'd like to pour it out, [C]I just don't think I c[G]an
[C]'Cause that's a hell of a lot to[G] ask of a dri[C]nkin' man
[F]I don't know when or where it was
[C]Or how we met and fell in love
[G]Or why she'd even fall for a guy like [C]me
[F]I tried to pull myself together
[C]Hopin' we could last forever
[G]For a while I started to bel[C]ieve
[F]Her daddy said, "She's all I got
[C]Son, don't ever break her heart
[G]Promise me before you take her h[C]and"
[C]But that's just too much to a[G]sk of a dri[C]nkin' man
[F]I look into the mi[C]rror, bottle in my h[G]and
[F]I'd like to pour it out, [C]I just don't think I c[G]an
[C]'Cause that's a hell of a lot to[G] ask of a dri[C]nkin' man
[F]I woke up this mornin' and I
[C]swore to god I'd never,
[G]ever take another drink ag[C]ain
