G
It says here you're from Houston
      D/F#
You're certified to drive a truck 
           Em                D                   C
It doesn't say what you been doin' the last five years
       G
Then I watched his eyes keep readin', 
       D/F#
then I watched his eyes look up
    Em                    D           C
And watched another job I needed disappear 
      
 C
'Cause when they get to the line
              G
Have you been convicted of a crime? 
         C                 G/B
They say Thanks for comin' in, 
                        Am   G/B  
an' they don't call you back 
        C                G/B           Am
I ain't askin' for every job under the sun 
            D          G
I just want one second chance 


   G                   D/F#
On August 22nd, little Jacob's turnin' five, 
        Em              D            C
But his Momma moved him half a state away  
G
I left another message 
       D/F#
on her phone at home last night 
        Em              D           C
And she finally had her lawyer call today 

    C                       G
She knows I can't afford to take this thing to court 
        C              G/B           Am    G/B
And I'm tryin' hard to make her understand 
        C                G/B        Am
I ain't askin' for every weekend of every month 
            D          G
I just want one second chance 


      C
I was young and I was stupid
  G
I regret it every day. 
        C               G/B
I ain't sayin' I didn't do it 
         Am             D
but I've paid for my mistakes 
       C
It's a lost and empty feelin' 
          G          D/F# Em
when they don't want you around 
        C
Yeah, I finally got my freedom 
    D
but what good is it now? 

C G Am G/B C


        G        
There's some days when it feels like 
D/F#
it's been a hundred years 
    Em                  D          C
Sometimes it feels like only yesterday 
        G
We were paintin' Jacob's nursery
         D/F#
Countin' days till he was here 
     Em                D             C
Next thing I knew, I'd thrown it all away 

      C
Now I know I can't go back 
       G
to the life I used to have 
       C              G/B               Am    G/B
When I still held the whole world in my hands 
        C            G/B           Am
I had a job, I had a wife, I had a son 
                D
Now I just want one 
       G
Second chance
