G
Whoa I drink pots and pots and pots and pots of strong black coffee
C                 D           G                
Trying to keep my sleepy soul awake
G
But the sleepiness still comes along and when it does its fast and strong
C               D               G 
I end up with a bad case of the shakes

G                    D            Em
And my baby tells me honey cut it out
Em                          D               G 
Cuz she's familiar with the bend before the break
G                         D              G        D     Em 
But she's in this runaway with me and by god were doing fifty
       C                   D            G 
Comin' round that hairpin turn top of wolf creek

G
Now I've called olly olly olly olly oxen free
       C               D               G
Tryin' to draw god out from his hiding place
G
Either he can't hear what I'm saying or he just got sick of playing
       C                    D                 G
Either way, I'll be calling out like this for days

G                       D                  Em
And the cadence and the chords are all the same
Em                         D            G
sung like an anthem from a child in the streets
G                              D               G        D       Em
And you know he ain't much for singing, but by god he's good at swinging
               C              D          G 
And that's the reason that he won't stay obsolete
G                                     Em        C  D        G  
And that's why he's singing, how, how long, how long must I wait
G                      Em        C         D                G  
He's singing, how, how long, how long will this whole thing take
    D
Cuz everyday? it's getting tougher to shoot straight
G
Now I've read page, after page, after page, after smeared page
           C      D          G
About this killer instinct inside of me
G
But love it, or hate it, praise it or berate it
     C               D        G 
It's just what comes out most naturally
         G                  D             Em
And they warn me kid you'll run it in the ground
Em                         D                    G
you keep on saying all the same things the same way
G                          D  
But I ain't trying to make friends
         G         D         Em  
I'm just trying to make this story end
Em            C                 D                 G
And if you're drinking then you don't got time to plead
G                                    Em        C   D        G  
And that's why I'm singing, how, how long, how long, must I wait
G                     Em        C         D                G   
I'm singing, how, how long, how long will this whole thing take
G        D
Cuz everyday? it's getting tougher to shoot straight
