[Intro]
F C C/B Am Am x2

[Verse 1]
         F          C              C/B          Am
Well I'm kinda in a pinch, need to make a quick buck
     F             C               C/B                     Am  
That ain't nothin' new, I'm gettin pretty damn used to bad luck
          F              C             C/B            Am 
Guess I's tired of bein' broke, that's why did what I done
       F         C          C/B                Am
Just a desperate man with a mind like a loaded gun

[Verse 2]
     F       C                C/B            Am
Well old man Jones, he lives around the next bend
        F                C               C/B          Am  
Growin' up we heard the tales of all the cash he kept hid
          F            C             C/B            Am 
Since his wife passed away, well his mind is fading fast
       F         C          C/B                Am
So he won't even notice when I rob him of his cash

[Chorus]
    F                   C      F                     C
The line that starts to fade between whats wrong and right
          F                   C          C/B           Am    
Black and white, they turn to grey, disappear into the night
       F                  C              F                  C
Please tell my sweet dear mother I never meant to cause her shame
     F              C          C/B              Am 
Tell Daddy I didn't mean to disgrace the family name
         F                   C    C/B            Am
But it's just that desperate people do desperate things

[Instrumental]
F C C/B Am Am x2

[Verse 3]
     F           C              C/B         Am
The screen door rattled and the old steps creaked
    F                C             C/B             Am 
My hearts a-pounding heavy and my knees are gettin weak
       F                 C           C/B            Am 
I was stumbling thru the dark when I heard a voice call
          F            C            C/B             Am
Don't you take another step or this hammer is gonna fall

[Verse 4]
       F                C             C/B            Am
Well I don't know why I ran, guess a feeling from my gut
       F                C           C/B             Am 
Well I all but made the wood before I felt the lead cut
        F                 C           C/B            Am 
Well my hearts a-beatin weaker and the air is growin thin
   F            C            C/B                Am
I said a little prayer as I drew my last breath in

[Chorus]
    F                   C      F                     C
The line that starts to fade between whats wrong and right
          F                   C          C/B           Am    
Black and white, they turn to grey, disappear into the night
       F                  C              F                  C
Please tell my sweet dear mother I never meant to cause her shame
     F              C          C/B              Am 
Tell Daddy I didn't mean to disgrace the family name
         F                   C    C/B            Am      Am
But it's just that desperate people do desperate things
          F                   C    C/B            Am      Am
Yeah it's just that desperate people do desperate things

[Outro]
F C C/B Am Am
F C C/B Am
