[Verse I]
G                     Cadd9
I like fast cars, and shop grease
D                 G
 chased a lot of crazy things
Cadd9                             D   Dsus2 D
 left behind my share of broken pieces
G                      Cadd9
 this morning I turned 36,
D                       G
 and you just remember half of it
Cadd9                                  D   Dsus2 D
 you wonder how you out-lived Hank and Jesus

[Chorus]
          Cadd9                D
I put the rage in a river, the roll in a thunder
G             B/D      Cadd9
 but you kept me from goin' under,
                         D     Dsus2 D
when that current got too heavy
  Cadd9                   D
I always thought I'd be a heap of metal
      G              B/D   Cadd9
in a cloud of smoke, foot stuck to the pedal
                                          D    Dsus2 D
Sold for parts like a junkyard rusted-out Chevy
Cadd9               A7sus4
 Fear, I've had none
              Cadd9               *Cadd9 *B/D *A7sus4  *single strum
what the hell made you want to love          a man,
        D              G
who was gonna die young

[Verse II]
       G               Cadd9
In the mirror, I saw my surprise
D                    G
 the new gray hairs like to hide, on my head
Cadd9                            D   Dsus2 D
 didn't think he'd live past thirty
G               Cadd9                    D                G
 If I make it thirty more, it's the brown that you'll be looking for
       Cadd9                                    D   Dsus2 D 
as you run your fingers through, say "slow down, honey"

[Chorus]
          Cadd9                D
I put the rage in a river, the roll in a thunder
G             B/D      Cadd9
 but you kept me from goin' under,
                         D     Dsus2 D
when that current got too heavy
  Cadd9                   D
I always thought I'd be a heap of metal
      G              B/D   Cadd9
in a cloud of smoke, foot stuck to the pedal
                                          D    Dsus2 D
Sold for parts like a junkyard rusted-out Chevy
Cadd9               A7sus4
 Fear, I've had none
              Cadd9               *Cadd9 *B/D *A7sus4  *single strum
what the hell made you want to love          a man,
        D              G
who was gonna die young

[Verse III]
      G               Cadd9
Call it intuition, or call it crazy
      D                    G
just thought by now I'd be pushing up daisies
       Cadd9                                 D   Dsus2 D
but I'd gladly stick around if we're together
         G                 Cadd9
So baby when you bow your head tonight
          D                   G
could you tell the Lord I've changed my mind?
         Cadd9   D           Dsus2 D  (pause)
And with you I'd like to live,
         G
forever
