Shot Full of Holes  Jason Boland & The Stragglers

Intro Chords:
[F] [C] [G] [F] [C] [G]  
[Am]Heís twenty [Am/B]one and [C]jealous of the [G]shadow outside the fence
Got a [C]bible from his [G]cellmate heís seachiní for a 2nd[D] chance
[Am]Hopes than [Am/B]he can [C]make it outside before his [G]little girl learns to talk
[C]Hopes he can get it [G]all figured outí before the [C]judge says that [D]he can walk
Cause itís [Em]hotwired, [C]too tired from [G]beiní who heís been
[Em]Car theft, [C]whatís left he ainít [G]ever goiní back [D]again
He ainít [C]never [C/B]goiní [G]back [C]to tie hi[C/B]mself to the [G]whippiní pole
His [F]American dreamís like the [C]county line sign that he shot full of [G]holes
And 2-4 donít seem like much till youíre stuck in an 8X10
He felt guilty damn near all his life and much more now than then
He wrote a letter to Jesus last night and he nailed it up to the cross
Yeah heís free in his heart but at night in the dark, you know the man
heís still the boss
He walked through the gate last Thursday and headed on into town
What did he see but a Cadillac there with all itís windows down
Chorus 2:
And itís broke down, hands bound,and it's back to who he was
No change it seems strange, it ainít ever been push or shove
And now heís goiní back to tie himself to the whippiní pole
And his American dream the county sign that he shot full of holes
