I made this tab to help myself learn this song, and since I am a beginner this song is probably off. I read
the chords from a live video of Riley playing. Feel free to correct this tab or add it.
Capo 2

Bm A G

Bm                             A                    G
Slipped out of town without a handshake or goodbye just this old guitar I had stars in my eyes
Bm                                               A                                        G
I was playing bars I was meeting girls I wasn't livin right but I was staying high every night
underneath the glow of the neon lights
Bm                             A                          G                           
one morning I woke up with bottles as far as I could see when I closed my eyes and I drifted 
back to sleep I saw

D              A           G                              D            A  G
the way momma looked at me even though I know I had to be hell to raise   man I raised some hell
D           A                  G            D                 A             G
heard daddy say son 'get your lazy ass up' there aint no sense in sleeping all day
Bm         A                        G                             Bm   A                       G     
I thought about my folks back home and how they cared about me so     made me wanna set this bottle down...


Bm                               A                                        G
Through the haze of a smokey old saloon saw a girl cutting me a grin from across the room
and I swear she had wings 
Bm                         A
she loved to hear me play guitar and I loved to watch her dance
and I loved to hear her sing 
Bm                            A
one night she layed down the law told me that I had to make a choice
G                                N.C.
when I closed my eyes and I listened to her voice I saw

D       A                G         D
The first time we held hands
A                              G                         
I saw the first time that we danced
D           A                 G
I saw that one night on the creek
                   D         A                        G
and that night you snuck out of your dorm and met me down on Mountain Street
Bm                    A               G                  Bm
I thought about that summer we spent down on the coast
A                        G             N.C.
made me wanna set this bottle down... Almost.


Bm                      A
One last time I found myself down and out
I was just outside of Birmingham in some no-name town
Bm                                         A
I couldnt recall the night before when I drank myself to sleep
so I threw on this old ball cap and stumbled out into the street
Bm                                   A
too many nights the same ol' same I got lost in this damn crown
     G                                         N.C.
but when I packed up my guitar case I took one last look around and I saw...

D             A    G
That old barn    where I killed my first truck
D                     A                     G
and I walked my bird dog bo past the pond where we killed our first duck
D           A                             G
I saw grandpa's garden and I could still see them pretty vines
D                     A                  G
though its been some time since they've held a muscadine
D               A                           G
I thought about how grandma's house still smells the same
                D                A        G
even though its been a few years     now since I've seen her face
Bm    A                           G            
.....so I raised my glass up for one last toast 
Bm   A                      G
.....and finally set this bottle down... Almost.
