My Saving Grace  Jamey Johnson

My first tab ever, hope it helps. This is one of my most favorite songs sung by Jamey Johnson
Intro C G C G
[C]Daddy's bourbon breathe [G]was strong as gasoline,
[F]and it seemed to fuel the rage he had i[G]nside.
[C]He'd come home just burning, [G]mad, drunk, and mean,
[F]raising hell on a Saturday [G]night.
[Am]Mom would lock us [G]up in her [F]bedroom,
he'd be l[Am]ying in the h[G]allway on [F]our way to sunday school.
[F]They Both in their own ways [C]became my saving grace.
Daddy [Am]passed out with his d[G]emons, momma [F]passed the offering plate.
[F]And she'd cry out to heaven [C]protect this son of mine,
[Am]while daddy kept th[G]e devil off my[F] back by [G]taking up his [C]time.
[C]Mom said nobody's perfect [G]as we walked in the church
to ask the[F] good lord to forgive him a[G]gain.
[C]I still recall that sermon [G]I hung on every word That's when
I l[F]earned just exactly what [G]father really meant.
[Am]And the angels and the [G]people gathered r[F]ound.
[Am]I was standing in that [G]water when the p[F]reacher laid me down.
Repeat Chorus and add at the end
Daddy kept the devil off my back by taking up his time.
