Love You Goodbye Tim McGraw
[D] [Asus4] [G] [D]
[D]He was thinkin' back when he w[Asus4]as a kid
His f[G]olks were divor[D]ced
[D]His old man hi[Asus4]gh on somethin'
[D]Came knockin' at the d[G]oor
[Em]His mama wouldn't talk to him
S[Em9]he said, "Boy, don't you let him in"
S[Em]he was cussin' an[Em9]d pacin'
A[G]nd wastin' her life at that linoleum fl[D]oo[Asus4]r[G] [D]
[D]He took him back to his o[Asus4]ld apartment
Turned[G] off the T[D]V
[D]His beautiful brok[Asus4]en hero on the couch
P[G]assed out aslee[D]p
[Em]And he put him to bed
With tears in h[Em9]is eyes
Em (strum once) D Asus4 G D
He said, "Dad, I love you, goodbye"
(just repeats throughout the song)
He headed out into the night
Seventeen years old
Fired up that rusty old pickup
Turned his collar to the cold
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/tim_mcgraw/love_you_goodbye_crd.html )
And he headed back to Mama's place
Ready for his big escape
And he tiptoed up the stairs
And left a note in the cover's fold
It said, "Mom, I wish I could wave a wand
And make you smile again
Bring back the man who stole your heart
'Fore the demons got to him"
"If I stay here any longer
Somethin' sacred's gonna die"
He said, "Mom, I love you, goodbye"
Took a lot of wrong turns
On the road findin' his life
By the grace of God he ended up
With a boy and a wife
And the phone call came from his sister
'Twas that old familiar pain
His mother was at the doorstep
Of Heaven's pure white light
At the end of the service
His father came up to him
Clear eyed and sober now
He said, "Boy, Jesus took my sins"
"And I pray someday
Maybe you'll forgive me too"
With tears in his eyes
He said, "Son, I love you, goodbye"
His plane touched down in Texas
He pulled out his phone
Dialed in the number
Got the machine of his old man's home
He said, "Dad we got an extra room
And your grandson has your eyes"
Couldn't say anything else
'Cause he started to cry
And he choked out
Em Em9 G (strum once)
"Dad, I love you, goodbye
D[Em]ad, I lov[Em9]e you, goodb[G]ye"
