I try to sleep, but my eyes are open
A
I can't think cause my heart is broken

And there's a bottle right next to me

I'll down a few drinks just to take the pain away

If God can take a friend away from me
E
Then I can say all I want and he won't do anything

F#m                      D

I can't say nothing at all

There will be another moment we'll meet again, just let it go

In the city that you love, now Atlanta's just a burial ground

All the stained pieces, I can't believe this

This is a really great song and I wish you 
all the best luck in learning it, buy the 
cd it's freaking amazing.:D
Ps. For beginners the chords of this song 
can also be played with the capo on 2 using 
Em, G, C, D. You can use the transpose button
and go "Down 2 Half Steps" then all the chords
become relative to the Capo, enjoy:D
