Writers: Scotty Emerick/Toby Keith
**CAPO 2**
In the brackets ie(D-A-Bm) are little walkdowns in between lines,
one quick strum on each chord then go into next line.
Intro: D D9 D (x2)
Never[D] owned a brand new car never[D9] worked in a white [D]collar
Never[Bm] held a woman longer than I held one single dollar
Never[Em] went out chasin' rainbows cause there can't be that much to it
Even[A] if I found my[Asus] pot of gold I'd [A]probably piss right through it
I can't re[D]member ever[D9] wanting for one [D]second of my l[(D-A-Bm)]ife
Even[Bm] if I did it cost too much to ever pay the pr[(Bm-A-G)]ice
I don't [G]dance out on the dark side ain't no secrets I can [(G-D/F#-Em)]tell
So[Em] you don't have to say a prayer for[Asus] me, I just said one for my[D]self
I'm livin' my [G]li-[A]-fe under[D] my terms
I'm callin' the [G]shots as [A]far as I can[Bm] see
I don't [G]owe nobody [A]nothin' I don't [D]answe[D/F#]r to a [G]soul
[D/F#]Might not w[Em]ork for you, [A] but it w[D]orks for me
D D9 D (x2)
I've been[D] bent and bruised and broken and flat [D9]busted once or [D]twice
I brought [Bm]most of it upon myself but I never compromised
My [Em]pride's too hard to swallow so I've chewed a lot of it
Mild [A]mannered and soft[Asus] hearted and hard [A]headed as you get
I [D]live out on the [D9]backroads where I [D]walk my country mi[(D-A-Bm)]le
And if it's[Bm] so good in the city why don't anybody sm[(Bm-A-G)]ile
The t[G]raffic's always heavy and the air ain't fit to brea[(G-D/F#-Em)]the
I[Em] ain't saying that it's wrong for you[Asus] it just don't make sense to[D] me
