Gretchen Peters - When All You Got Is A Hammer



INTRO: Am

There's a bible on the table
          C
There's a bottle on the shelf
          F            Am
There's a woman in the kitchen
       E7
Crying quietly to herself


         Am
Down the hallway, in the bedroom
       C
He can hear his children wail
     F                Am
When all you got is a hammer
E7                      Am
Everything looks like a nail



Well he came home from the desert
       C
With a medal on his chest
       F            Am
Like a hero, like a champion
       E7
But he felt more like a guest


       Am
Now he sleeps with one eye open
       C
And he wakes up scared as hell
    F                 Am
And all he's got is a hammer
    E7                      Am
And everything looks like a nail


CHORUS:
           C
Well, they show you how to shoot
         G
And they show you how to kill
               Dm
But they don't show you what to do
          E7
With this hole that you can't fill


       Am          
So you dwell in the darkness of your soul
     C
Like Jonah in the belly of the whale
    F                Am
And all you got is a hammer
    E7                      Am
And everything looks like a nail


INSTRUMENTAL: Am   C   F  Am  E7 (2x)  Am  



When a good man in a bad dream
      C
Can't make it on his own
        F                       Am
When he can't feed his own damn children
       E7                      
On the money that he brings home


        Am          
And the deck is stacked against him
       C
And he knows he's bound to fail
    F                 Am
And all he's got is a hammer
E7                      Am
Everything looks like a nail


CHORUS:
           C
Well, they show you how to shoot
         G
And they show you how to kill
               Dm
But they don't show you what to do
          E7
With this hole that you can't fill


       Am          
So you dwell in the darkness of your soul
     C
Like Jonah in the belly of the whale
    F                Am
And all you got is a hammer
    E7                      Am
And everything looks like a nail
                      
Yeah, all you got is a hammer
    E7 N.C.                 Am
And everything looks like a nail
