   D F#7 Bm A  G F#m Em C#dim7 A7

[Verse 1]
D        F#7   Bm          A
hometown hero, flexing his charm
       G          F#m         Em             C#dim7
with a borderline joke to the guys at the bar
        D          F#7   Bm               A                G     C#dim7
And they slap their knees like they've not heard it before.
 D           F#7          Bm          A
Thirty-five years old wearing his badge,
G            F#m         Em       C#dim7 D
Nickname for life on the shoulder of his bomber
        F#7           Bm          A                G     C#dim7
That he wears as the coach of the high school team.

[Chorus]
        Bm              A7 
He lights his cigarette
           D        F#7          Bm          A
And says, "man these things will kill me someday"
 G          F#m         Em             C#dim7
Raises his glass and says, "here's to hoping"


[Verse 2]
D        F#7   Bm          A
Hometown hero flexing his arm
       G          F#m         Em             C#dim7
With a five-yard pass to the end of the bar
        D          F#7   Bm               A                G     C#dim7
He says, "i'll be right back i'm just gonna go grab another pack."
D           F#7          Bm          A
Walks one block to the all-night station
G            F#m         Em       C#dim7 
And steps into a situation.
D       F#7           Bm          A                G     C#dim7
There's a man with a gun pointed at the nervous clerk.

[Bridge]
        Bm                 A7 
And before he could think,
           D        F#7          Bm          A
He was tackling the gunman
G          F#m         Em             C#dim7
Who hit his head and was knocked unconscious.


[Verse 3]
D        F#7   Bm          A
The clerk relieved said, "oh my god
       G          F#m         Em             C#dim7
You're a hero man and you should stick around
       D          F#7   Bm               A                G     C#dim7
'Til the cops get here, maybe you'll make the morning news."
D           F#7          Bm          A
But the hometown hero rose to hit feet,
G            F#m         Em       C#dim7 
Tossed him the gun and said, "thanks, but i've gotta run
D       F#7           Bm          A                G     C#dim7
I'll take a pack of camel lights and be on my way."


[Chorus]
   Bm                        G
He stepped outside the door,
   Bm                        G 
Heard the sirens in the distance
Bm                A7
Lit his cigarette
           D        F#7          Bm          A
And said, "man these things will kill me someday"
 G          F#m         Em             C#dim7
Exhaled smoke and said, "here's to hoping"

[Refrain]
           D        F#7          Bm          A
 G          F#m         Em             C#dim7
