Capo 3 My first tab for an amazing 
song by my favorite singer Eric Church!

Capo 3
Verse 1

G                 Cadd9
I like fast cars and sharp dreams
D                Em
Chased a lot of crazy things
Cadd9           G              D
Left behind my share of broken pieces
G                   Cadd9  
This morning i turned 36 
D                 Em
You just remember half of it
Cadd9              G                 D
You wonder how you out lived hank or Jesus
 

(Chorus)

         Cadd9                G
I put the rage in the river and the roll in the thunder
    D                  Em
But you kept me from going under
Cadd9            G           D
When that current got too heavy
    Cadd9                 G
I always thought I'd be a heap of metal
    D                     Em
In a cloud of smoke pushed up to the pedal
Cadd9                  G                   D
Sold for parts like a junk yard rusted out Chevy
Cadd9             G              D               Em
Fear I've had none what the hell made you wanna love
Cadd9          D
A man who was gonna die young

Verse 2


G                   Cadd9
In the mirror I saw my surprise
D                        Em
Who knew gray hairs liked to hide
Cadd9             G                    D
On a head didn't think he'd live past thirty
G             Cadd9               D                     Em
If I make it thirty more it's the brown that you'll be looking for
Cadd9                     G                 D
As your run your fingers through it and say slow down honey

Chorus

         Cadd9                G
I put the rage in the river and the roll in the thunder
    D                  Em
But you kept me from going under
Cadd9            G           D
When that current got too heavy
    Cadd9                 G
I always thought I'd be a heap of metal
    D                     Em
In a cloud of smoke pushed up to the pedal
Cadd9                  G                   D
Sold for parts like a junk yard rusted out Chevy
Cadd9             G              D               Em
Fear I've had none what the hell made you wanna love
Cadd9          D
A man who was gonna die young

Verse 3/ Outro

G                     Cadd9
Call it intuition or call it crazy
    D                    Em
Just thought by now I'd be pushing up daisies
Cadd9                 G             D
But i'd gladly stick around if we're together
G                        Cadd9
So baby when you bow your head tonight
D                         Em
Could you tell the lord I've changed my mind
        Cadd9      D
And with you I'd Like to Live Forever

G Cadd9 D Em G Cadd9 D
