[Verse 1]
               E                          Asus       E
She said "it's none of my business but it breaks my heart"
          C#                      B11        E
Dropped a dozen cheap roses in my shopping cart
        E                        Asus      E
Made it out to the truck without breaking down
C#                          B11       E
Everybody knows you're in a speed trap town
       E                           Asus         E
It's a Thursday night but there's a high school game
        C#                            B11     E
Sneak a bottle up the bleachers and forget my name
      E                   Asus   E
These 5-A bastards run a shallow cross
       C#                     B11         E
It's a boy's last dream and a man's first loss

[Chorus 1]
       F#m           Asus        E           B
And it never did occur to me to leave, 'til tonight
       F#m              Asus          E
There's no one left to ask if I'm all right
F#m              Asus               E           B
Sleep until I'm straight enough to drive, then decide
           F#m            Asus            E
If there's anything that can't be left behind

[Verse 2]
    E                          Asus      E
The doctor said daddy wouldn't make it a year
        C#                    B11       E
But the holidays are over and he's still here
    E                             Asus E
How long can they keep you in the ICU
C#                            B11       E
Veins through the skin like a faded tattoo
      E                          Asus   E
Was a tough state trooper from a decade back
          C#                              B11       E
Till that girl who wasn't mama caused his heart attack
          E                         Asus    E
He didn't care about us when he was walkin' around
     C#                      B11        E
Just pulling women over in a speed trap town

[Chorus 2]
       F#m          Asus         E              B
But it never did occur to me to leave, 'til tonight
       F#m             Asus        E
When I realized he'll never be all right
F#m               Asus            E            B
Sign my name and say my last goodbye, then decide
             F#m                Asus            E
That there's nothing here that can't be left behind

[Guitar Solo]

[Verse 3]
E                         Asus     E
Roads got blurry when the sun came up
C#                          Asus   E
Slept a couple hours in the pickup truck
E                           Asus   E
Drank a cup of coffee by an Indian mound
C#                            B11        E
Thousand miles away from that speed trap town
C#                            B11         E
Thousand miles away from that speed trap town

Key is correct, but it is created by using a Dropped D capo that covers the 54321 strings and leaves 6 open. This creates a dropped E tuning, but the song uses the D chord shapes.

I think that should be a C#m instead of C#.
