[Verse 1]
      G/D          G/C#          G/B           
Honey, don't you be yelling at me 
         G/A         G      G/F#    Em    G/A
when I'm cleaning my gun
    G/D       G/C#          G/B           
I'll wash the blood off the tailgate 
      G/A         G      G/F#    Em    G/B
when deer season's done
       G                  A7sus2
We got one more weekend to go
        G           G/F#       Em    G/B
And I'd like to kill one more doe

[Instrumental]
G/D          G/C#       Em/G            Em/F#
G            G/F#       A7sus2

[Verse 2]
      G/D          G/C#          G/B           
So I'll shovel the sidewalk again
          G/A         G      G/F#    Em    G/A
'cause you're still in a stew
         G/D             G/C#          G/B           
I bet the bridge tender's widow won't mind 
          G/A         G      G/F#    Em    G/A
that I can't please you
       G                  A7sus2
She's sure got the run of the men
        G           G/F#       Em    
Out here where the pickin's are thin 
G/B
and there's not much to do

[Instrumental]
G/D          G/C#       Em/G            Em/F#
G            G/F#       Em              G/A

[Bridge]
Bm
I woke up last night in the grip of a fright 
G
scared to breathe for I might make a noise
Bm
This life that we craved so little we saved 
G                               A7sus2
between the grandparents graves and the grandchildren's toys

[Verse 3]
            G/D          G/C#          G/B           
We grew up hard        and our children 
          G/A         G      G/F#    Em    G/A
don't know what that means
         G/D          G/C#       G/B           
We turned into our parents   before
          G/A         G      G/F#    Em    G/A
 we were out of our teens
       G                     A7sus2
Through a series of Chevys and Fords
        G      G/F#           Em    
The occasional spin round the floor 
G/B
at the Copper Canteen

[Instrumental]
G/D          G/C#       Em/G     Em/G  Em/F# Em/E
G            G/F#       A7sus2

[Verse 4]
        G/D          G/C#     G/B           
Now the big boxes out on the bypass
     G/A         G      G/F#    Em    G/A
are shaving us thin
         G/D          G/C#       G/B           
I guess we'll hold on a couple more years 
     G/A             G      G/F#    Em    G/A
'til the pension kicks in
            G                     A7sus2
Then we'll sell all the stock in the store
        G      G/F#           Em    
Leave only the lock on the door
G/B
And wonder what then

[Instrumental]
G/D          G/C#   G/C#   G/B  G/A G/B  Em
 G           G/F#       Em    G/B

[Bridge]
Bm
When I wake up at night in the grip of a fright 
G
and you hold me so tight to your chest
Bm
Then your breath on my skin still pulls me back in 
G                               A7sus2
'til I'm weightless and then I can rest

[Verse 5]
        G/D          G/C#     G/B           
So if Monsignor should pull you aside 
         G/A           G      G/F#    Em    G/A
as you're leaving the church
        G/D          G/C#     G/B           
And I'm out on the ice, dropping lines 
         G/A           G      G/F#    Em    G/A
for the walleye and perch
                       G                     A7sus2
Tell him it's not your job to bring me to the fold
        G           G/F#           Em    G/A
And I'd rather stand out in the cold

[Verse 6]
        G/D              G/C#       G/B           
And honey I know that the woodpile's low 
         G/A           G      G/F#    Em    G/A
and you can't close the flue
        G/D          G/C#     G/B           
So I'll split up a couple more cords 
         G/A           G      G/F#    Em    G/A
'fore the winter time's through
G                     A7sus2
Hold on to your rosary beads
      G        G/F#         Em   
Leave me to my mischievous deeds 
 G/A
like we always do

[Outro]
G/D          G/C#       Em/G            Em/F#
G            G/F#       A7sus2
G/D          G/C#       Em/G            Em/F#
A7sus2       G
