Verses: F-Em
Chorus: Am-F
Intro: F-Em
Verse 1:
[F] A twenty-six ounce p[Em]romise
The bottle still lays t[F]here
We'll make a right on B[Em]rookfield
Never took anyone else h[F]ere
The days I sit for h[Em]ours
This night I tried to t[F]hrow these rocks into
This d[G]irty lake that's home
Chorus 1:
[Am] You standing in my b[F]ackyard
Your hands up in the a[Am]ir
Calling out my n[F]ame one hundred times but I'm not t[Am]here
I think you telling s[F]ecrets
To people who don't c[Am]are enough to know
[G]Why I'm so scared
Verse 2:
[F] I'll just sit in s[Em]ilence
Waves the only s[F]ounds
A sailboat div[Em]ide the clouds that cover this whole t[F]own
So if it really makes no d[Em]ifference
I'll just see you ar[F]ound
And if it doesn't m[G]atter
I'll stay here til the sun goes d[Am]own
Chorus 2:
I'm standing in your f[F]ront yard
My hands aren't in the a[Am]ir
And I don't say a w[F]ord you know exactly why I'm h[Am]ere
A twenty-six ounce pr[F]omise
The bottle still lays t[Am]here
So bury me on B[G]rookfield and then I won't be sc[C]ared
