  Back when darkness overtook me    on a blind man's curve

  Now I've paid my dues cuz I have owed them, but I've paid a price sometimes
C           C        Dm7(4)  Dm7(4)  F    F(9)      Gsus  G

Am         F      Em      Am      Dm7         C(9)/E     F(9)  F  F  G
  It's too late for turning back, I pray for the heart and the nerve

      to  be  my  guide.

a couple extra notes; I wasn't sure which ones to put in.
