Back Up Against the Wall  Travis Tritt

Intro: B A/B E D
[B] [A/B] [E] [D] [B] 
[B]I was dealin' up and down the highway
Till they caught me with a heavy lo[E]ad
They [F#]sentenced me to hard labor
Wo[E7]rkin' on the side of the road[B]
Now I don't deny I was guilty
And I know I broke the l[E]aw
[F#]I was hungry and broke and couldn't see no hope
And my back [E7]was up against the wa[B]ll
[B]Now I'm right outside your window
Honey, open up and let me [E]in
I br[F#]oke out of jail this mornin'
And I ain[E]'t never goin' back a[B]gain
I just had to stop by for a minute
And I can't stay long at al[E]l
'Cause[F#] I gotta run, you see I'm under the gun
And my[E7] back is up against the[B] wall
(Back to first Part of Intro then solo)
[B]I was shackled to a three-time loser
A man named Jef[E]ferson
[F#]One night we got to talkin'
And [E7]I asked him what he'd [B]done
He said a man fell over my razor
In the middle of a bar room brawl
But [F#]don't you see, it was him or me
And my back [E7]was up against the wa[B]ll
Chorus (2 x's)
[F#]Cause I gotta run, you see I'm under the gun
And my [E7]back is up against the[B] wall
[B]Yeah, [F#]I gotta run, you see I'm under the gun
And my [E7]back is up against the [B]wall
[B] [A/B] [E] [D] [B]  
Note the A/B in the Intro is like an A with a B note on top
