Intro: C - Em - C - Em7 - D

Verse 1:

C
It was 1985
Em                        C
When your son and I drove by
                     Em   D
And saw you standing there
C
Outside the liquor store
Em                      C
With a bottle in your hand
                    Em   D
Living the life you chose

Pre-Chorus:

Am             G    C
I always wondered why
                 Am
We just drove on by
                    D
I never saw you again

Chorus:

G                       Am
You never tried to be a better man
     Em          C
You chose to run instead
G          Am
All of the guilt you carried
     Em             C
Was written on your face
G                Am
I never knew the day you died
      Em             C
Would take it all away

Verse 2:

C
Soon his mother died
Em
And all the locked up pain inside
C        Em          D
Began to rear its head
C
And all the memories
Em
Like some old bad disease
C           Em       D
Was finally put to bed

Pre-Chorus:

Am                G  C
I always wondered why
                 Am
We just drove on by
                    D
But now I understand

(Chorus)

Bridge: F - C - F - C - D
