Tuned down ½ step

[Verse 1]

                E                     A                      E
A heart on the run, keeps a hand on a gun, it cant trust anyone
               E                     A                      E
I was so sure, what I needed was more, tried to shoot out the sun
                 C#m                   A                      E
In days when we raged, we flew off the page, such damage was done
               E                     A                          E 
But I made it through, cause somebody knew, I was meant for someone


     E                          A                          E 
So girl leave your boots by the bed we aint leavin this room
       E                  A                      E 
Til someone needs medical help or the magnolias bloom
     F#m                      A                       C#m
Its cold in this house and I aint  going out to chop wood
     E                          A                   E 
So cover me up and know youre enough to use me for good

[Verse 2]

                       E                         A                  E
Put your faith to the test, when I tore off your dress, in Richmond all high
          E                          A                  E
I sobered up, and I swore off that stuff, forever this time 
                   C#m                     A                        E
In the old lovers scene, I thought itd be me, who helped him get home
               E                     A                      E
But home was a dream, one that Id never seen, till you came along

[Chorus] (x2)

     E                         A                        E
So girl hang your dress up to dry we aint leavin this room
        E                     A                        E
Til Percy Priest breaks open wide and the river runs through
 F#m                       A                          C#m
Carries this house on the stones like a piece of drift wood
          E                   A                    E
Cover me up and know you're enough to use me for good

Looks good. It's a actually C#m not Dbm (same sounding chord but now it's in the key of E). Alternatively, can be played with capo 1 with chord forms D G Bm Em if you don't want to down tune.

You're right it is C#m, not Dbm. I was playing C#m and thinking it was Dbm. I fixed it and it should update in a few days.
