Pat "Fucking" Green- One for the Road

Capo 1st fret

Verse 1:
D                     A                  Bm                  G
Tree blows against my window, there's a storm brewing in my heart,
           D                A               D
Watching credits roll on a late night T.V. show, 
                     A                   Bm                   G
Lonely street light peeking through the cracks in my window shade,
       D                     A                 D
After all that he's seen I wonder if he truly knows, 
                             A                      Bm                 G
Did he watch her when she slammed the door, like a hammer against the nail, 
D              A                G      A     D
Leaving me in what's become a lonely prison cell.

Chorus 1:
            G   D       A
I thought always meant forever,
              D                    G           A
I guess you couldn't play second fiddle to my guitar, 
        Bm        G                   Em
like an old man drinking down at the tavern, 
            G                               A              D
well I was one for the road and now you're headed on back home.


Verse 2:
D               A                 Bm        G
I met you at a party, seems like only yesterday,
         D                    A                  D
We were falling in love and living to chase our dreams, 
                       A                Bm                         G       D
I gave you flowers on Valentines, and I had a strong feeling deep down inside, 
                          A          D
That someday we'd make a home and a family, 
                        A           Bm              G
I'd say I'm sorry in a heartbeat if you would only let me,
         D                   A        D
I could learn to forgive if you only forget. 
                         A      Bm                      G
In a hotel room down in Austin after another one night show, 
    D                     A                          G      A         D
I caught your silhouette creeping down the street, under a moonlight glow, 
                    A    Bm              G
and as you took my hand, so went all my pain, 
    D                      A            G         A         D
we stepped right off the platform and caught the midnight train.

Chorus 2:
            G     D         A
And I guess always means forever,
       D                           G            A
And I won't make you play second fiddle to my guitar,
         Bm      G                    Em
Like an old man drinking down at the tavern,
      G                           A              D
We're one for the road and we're headed on back home,
      G                           A             D
Yeah one for the road and we're headed on back home,
G                           A              Em D G A D
One for the road and we're headed on back ho--me.
