[Verse]
            D
I never get lonely
I got these ghosts to keep me company
           G
I took the rearview off this old Ford so I only see in front of me
        D
Now the past is out of sight and out of mind
        G                                         A
Swore I changed, now I’m back chasing these white lines. 

[Chorus]
           D
I’m just a long haired son of a sinner
              G
Searching for new ways I can get gone
                   A                          G                  D
I’m a pedal to the highway if you ever wonder why we write these songs 
                D  
‘Cause I’m only one drink away from the devil
         G
I’m only one call away from home
                           A
Yeah, I’m somewhere in the middle
                   G
I guess I’m just a little
          D
Right and wrong

[Verse]
                D
These backroads got me
These pills pretend to be my friend
                 G
I’m done for the last time
I’m lying to myself again
         D
I always say that
                                G
Now I’m on my way back here somehow
I should know by now

[Chorus]
A          D
I’m just a long haired son of a sinner
              G
Searching for new ways I can get gone
                   A                          G                  D
I’m a pedal to the highway if you ever wonder why we write these songs 
                D  
‘Cause I’m only one drink away from the devil
         G
I’m only one call away from home
                           A
Yeah, I’m somewhere in the middle
                   G
I guess I’m just a little
          D
Right and wrong

[Bridge]
   Bm
Mistakes I made I paid for them in cash
A
Walked a million miles on broken glass
    G
I’m feeling like I’m fading
My hearts been slowing breaking
      Bm
Might pop a pill, and smoke and maybe drink
A
Talk to God and tell him what I think
   G
At first He’s gonna hate me
But eventually He’ll save me

[Chorus]
           D
I’m just a long haired son of a sinner
              G
Searching for new ways I can get gone
                   A                          G                  D

         G
I’m only one call away from home
                           A
Yeah, I’m somewhere in the middle
                   G
I guess I’m just a little
          D
Right and wrong
