Capo 7

[Intro]

D G (x3)
D A7 D


[Verse 1]

          D                        A7
I been working here, Monday, it'll be a year
        D            D/F#                        G
And I can't recall a day when I didn't wanna disappear
                 D                        A7
But I keep on showing up, hell-bent on growing up
                 G       D  A7 D
If it takes a lifetime

                     D                             A7
I'm learning how to be alone, fall asleep with the TV on
        D               D/F#               G
And I fight the urge to live inside my telephone
             D                         A7
I keep my spirits high, find happiness by and by
                 G       D  A7 D
If it takes a lifetime


[Chorus]

       G                            D      
I got too far from my raisin', I forgot where I come from
          D                              A7 
And the line between right and wrong was so fine
          D                 D/F#
Well I thought the highway loved me
          G              D
But she beat me like a drum
    D             A7               G      D
My day will come, if it takes a lifetime

D G (x3)
D A7 D


[Verse 2]

                D                          A7
I don't keep liquor here, never cared for wine or beer
       D             D/F#              G
And working for the county keeps me pissin' clear
                D                               A7
The nights are dry as dust, but I'm letting my eyes adjust
                 G       D  A7 D
If it takes a lifetime


[Chorus]

       G                            D      
I got too far from my raisin', I forgot where I come from
          D                              A7 
And the line between right and wrong was so fine
          D                 D/F#
Well I thought the highway loved me
          G              D
But she beat me like a drum
    D             A7               G      D
My day will come, if it takes a lifetime


[Bridge]

Em Bm
Em G Asus4 A7


[Verse 3]

            D                               A7
Man is a product of all the people that he ever loved
     D               D/E D/F#           G
And it don't make a difference how it ended up
                 D                              A7
If I loved you once my friend, oh, I can do it all again
                 G       D  A7 D
If it takes a lifetime


[Chorus]

        G                                 D      
We got too far from our raisin' and we fought 'til we went numb
            D                           A7 
You were running up a mountain in your own mind
         D                 D/F#
And I thought that I was running to 
    G               D
But I was running from
         D             A7               G      D
Oh, our day will come, if it takes a lifetime
     D             A7               G     
Our day will come, if it takes a lifetime

D G (x3)
D A7 D

Capo 4 sounds better.

Isbell plays this in dropped-D tuning. Better for the intro riff/hook thing.
