Gary Allan   "Tough Goodbye"

The inversion chords on this song should be played with only a few notes, and are designed to be 
electric guitar chords, but they will sound fine on your flat top. If the 
fingering is too challenging,
simplify by not playing one or more strings. Have fun!

(verse)
           F/B  F, F/B F, F/B F, F/B F, F/B F 
That was a tough goodbye
         Bb               C                F/B F, F/B F, F/B F, F/B F, F/B F
And what tore me down was watchin’ her try not to cry
    Bb                     C            F/B F, F/B F, F/B F, F/B F, F/B F
She asked me to stay and for a minute I thought I might
Bb    C                  F/B F, F/B F, F/B F, F/B F, F/B F  
Yeah, that was a tough good-bye


(verse)
           F
That was a long night
        Bb               C                 F/B F, F/B F, F/B F, F/B F, F/B F
Full of lookin’ back and wonderin’ what it might ‘a been like
        Bb               C               F/B F, F/B F, F/B F, F/B F, F/B F
Must’ve drove her memory across at least ten state lines
Bb    C                    F  
Yeah, that was a long, long night



(chorus)
        Bb        Bb/E
And I’m not quite ready yet
   Bb/D           Bb/E
To settle down or even let
F             F/E
Someone get a hold of me
     F/D                 F/E
‘Cause I’m not done being free
  Bb           Bb/E         
I still have a few roads
   Bb/D            Bb/E           
To travel down and Lord knows
Dm    C                  Bb
I got way too close that time
                 F
That was a tough goodbye


           F
That was a hurtin’ kind
        Bb              C                        F          
Not the so long after awhile, see ya soon, some other time
      Bb            C           F
Where I just walk away and everybody’s fine
Bb  C                       F
No, that was a hurtin’ kind




(chorus)
        Bb        Bb/E
And I’m not quite ready yet
   Bb/D           Bb/E
To settle down or even let
F             F/E
Someone get a hold of me
     F/D            F/E
‘Cause I’m not done being free
  Bb               Bb/E
I still have a few roads
            Bb/D           Bb/E 
To travel down and Lord knows
Dm    C                  Bb
I got way too close that time
                     F  F/E  F/D
That was a tough goodbye



  C 
I know I won’t find anyone better
Bb      Bb/E         Bb/D        Bb/E 
I....   I can’t keep runnin’ forever



(chorus-out)
                   Bb           Bb/E
And I’m not quite     ready yet
               Bb/D             Bb/E
To settle down      or even let
F             F/E
Someone get a hold of me
F/D                 F/E
‘Cause I’m not done being free
             Bb             Bb/E
I still have    a few roads
               Bb/D                 Bb/E
To travel down      and Lord knows
Dm    C                  Bb
I got way too close that time
                     F    F/E  F/D
That was a tough goodbye
F/E                  F      F/E  F/D
That was a tough goodbye
           F
That was a tough goodbye
         Bb               C                F 
And what tore me down was watchin’ her try not to cry
