Standard Tuning
Capo 2nd Fret

Chord Reference: 
please don't trust me on the chord NAMES. 
i'm useless at theory so i'm using Guitar Pro's simple 
names to hopefully tell you it right.

But back home we don’t care so much
C                             G
  I might be wrong but that’s how it looks
A                            B7
We listen to the sound of our minds

C             G
Never been so far before
C                     G
 I drove for days and weeks and more

C                       D
Hard shoulder where the chaos lies
Em                    A7
 An invitation to the darker side

I’m holding on, holding on as my life it slips away

I’ve served my purpose true and well 
C                      G
 but I haven’t yet got much to tell
Am                          B7
I listen to the panic in my nerves

 I’d better turn around and try again
