[Intro]
C - G - D - Em - C - G - D x2


[Verse 1]

      C              G              D              Em
If my life road on a ship I’d chase down some hurricanes 
          C                  G                 D
we’d have stories once those howling winds had passed
           C               G               D                Em
And if I’d wanted my whole life to be laid out in black and white
         C                   G              D
I’d have turned my weathered sails sometime ago
             C              G                D          Em
But I stayed steady on that stream(?), river rocks, and gasoline
        C              G             D
Bumping curbs on every turn we would make
                 C               G               D                Em
The friends we’d made and lovers past, bail bond loans and Sunday mass
          C           G             D
They have opened up a newer life to me


[Chorus 1]
            C              G          D              Em
Well what a shame a cryin’ shame 9 to 5 it’s all the same
              C                 G             D
But you won’t take those wasted hours to your grave
           C                 G               D               Em
And O good God don’t rest my soul and let my sails fall to a fold
          C                     G                    D
I’m still running in a race and wishing on a falling star


INTERLUDE C - G - D - Em - C - G - D


[Verse 2]
             C                G                   D                            Em
And how much money meets your desire and how much heat can you take before you feel the fire
        C                    G                    D
I don’t think it’s worth the pain but who am I to say
                    C                 G                D                 Em
Because I feel like every other day I sing another sad song about living free
       C                           G                  D
I lose another little piece of the puzzle that got me here
                  C                  G               D                     Em
Another roadhouse fight cast down by sin(?), another blowout 10 miles from town again
        C                            G                       D
Another sold out night that makes it worth the fight for the life I wanna live
     C             G      D                            Em
If I loved and ? ? ? sing loud till they turn out your very last light
          C                G                     D
When your gone what do you have but the song you sang
                C                      G             D                        Em
And there ain’t no one who can hold me back, I can’t change my ways once I’ve felt like that
     C             G                  D
Find love(?) and a life worth remembering


[Chorus 2]
       C              G          D              Em
What a shame a cryin’ shame 9 to 5 it’s all the same
              C                 G             D
But you won’t take those wasted hours to your grave
         C             G               D                     Em
And as I watch my hour glass grains of sand are like days of past
          C                  G                     D
Brace the storm this is your love, your life, your task


[Solo]
C - G - D - Em - C - G - D x2


[Chorus 3]
         C             G               D                     Em
And as I watch my hour glass grains of sand are like days of past
          C                  G                     D
Brace the storm this is your love, your life, your task
