We Used to Vacation

For the verse, this song uses a descending style of chords that

Intro - 2x:

Am     Am/maj3
C6     Am/add9


Verse One:

Am                       Am/maj3
I kissed the kids at noon and stumbled out the room

C6                      Am/add9
I caught up a cab, ran up a tab at 7th and Flower

Am                      Am/maj3
Best recital I had to ruin, missed my son's graduation

C6                      Am/add9
Punched the Nickles boy for taking his seat, he gets all the anger



Bridge:

      Am                               Am/maj3
From me, said things could be much worse, natural disaster

C6                Am/add9
On the evening news

Am                          Am/maj3
Said things could be much worse, we still got our health

C6                Am/add9         Am/-2
My paycheck in the mail



Chorus:
                 C                  G
I promised to my wife, and children

F                  C              G
I'd never touch another drink as long as I live

F                  C           G
But even then, it sounds so soothing

F
This will blow over in time

F
This will all blow over in time



Verse Two:

Am                     Am/maj3
I'm just an honest man, provide for me and mine

C6                  Am/add9             Am
I give a check to tax detuctible organizations

Am/maj3                                    Am/maj3
Two weeks vacation won't heal the damage done

C6              Am/add9
I need another one



Bridge:

Am                               Am/maj3
Said things could be much worse, natural disaster

C6                Am/add9
On the evening news

Am                          Am/maj3
Said things could be much worse, we still got our health

C6                Am/add9         Am/-2
My paycheck in the mail



Chorus Two:

                  C        G
I promised to my wife and children

F                 C               G
I'd never touch another drink as long as I live

F                   C        G
But even then, it sounds so soothing

F                 C           G
To mix a gin and sink into oblivion

F                 C         G
I promised to my wife and children

F                   C          G
That accident left everyone a little shook up

F                      C       G
But at the meetings I felt so empty

F
This will blow over in time

F
This will all blow over in time



Outro:

Am      Am/maj3 - 4x

Am      Am/maj3
C6      Am/add9 - 2x

End on Am/add9
