This is a great song that Chris wrote when he was 19.  He recorded it a while ago with 
his band, Stiff Whisker and the Driftwood Kids.  Youtube the song to get strum patterns 
and rhythm!  Capo the 3rd fret!

        Cadd11
Feelin' thick like the mist on a summer road
        C/G
Feelin' sick got the highs and the lows
         Cadd11
And this hope like a shadow of rain
              C/G
You know it's gone like the girl I never could change
                   Cadd11
Straighten out the wheel and I close my eyes
               C/G
Dropped away I feel oh baby reckless and blind
                 Cadd11
Double dare this world to let the bullets fly
           C/G
Cause I'm down and I'm out
                  Cadd11
I'm never gonna die


                    Am
And this sweat it breaks
    G
My hands they are shakin' I
Cadd11
Shoulda done the right thing babe I
                                    Am
Woulda done the right thing but it takes
    G
A stronger man
   Cadd11
To know what's the right thing I didn't
                          C/G
Know what the right thing was



What's the price of love it's everywhere I go
Like it comes along when you just don't care anymore
And it goes away like a shadow of rain
An even trade one I have glady made and I'll make again
If everything goes well I'll be givin' in
To some senorita's spell and I'll think of pain
Just how far away it feels oh God
It's nippin' at my heels

And this sweat it breaks
My hands they are shakin' I
Shoulda done the right thing babe I
Woulda done the right thing but it takes
A stronger man
To know what's the right thing I didn't
Know what the right thing was

                  Am
Oh but next time around
           G
Oh God it won't be long I
Cadd11
Always do the wrong things right I
                                         Am
Always do the right things wrong and it takes
    G
A stronger man
   Cadd11
To know what's the right thing I didn't
                          C/G
Know what the right thing was
            Cadd11   C/G
Oh what it was
                                          Cadd11   C/G
Oh Lord I tried to do the right thing now
                                            Cadd11
Oh Lord I tried to do the right thing now

End on C/G
