D          G            D              G
I woke up early with a pounding in my head
          D               G                  D    G
I'd been out the night before with all my friends
D         G              D                G
A little worried, kinda wondering what I did
          D             G              D
I said, Lord please forgive me for my sins
    A                              G
My wife wanted to kill me but she tried to save me first
A                          G  (walkdown)
You're goin' if I have to drag your butt to church
D            G             D         G
I love this crazy tragic, sometimes almost magic
D       G  A/E    D
Awful, beautiful life

D           G                D          G
I read the hymns and kinda sorta sang along
          D                 G            D    G
Made it through the Sunday sermon wide awake
D           G          D             G
We met the family for dinner at our home
            D                 G                     D
Drank some beer, watched the game and cooked some steak
A                        G
My little brother had a big fight with his wife
     A                      G  (walkdown)
And our poor mother sat between em both all night
D            G             D         G
I love this crazy tragic, sometimes almost magic
D       G  A/E    D
Awful, beautiful life

Bm                          F#m
We said a prayer for cousin Michael in Iraq
Bm                          F#m
We're all aware that he may never make it back
Bm                         F#m
We talked about the way we missed his stupid jokes
G          D/F#          Em7                A
And how he loved to be a soldier more than most


D         G                  D                G
I lay in bed that night and thought about the day
            D              G              D     G
And how my life is like a roller-coaster ride
D            G               D               G
The ups and downs and crazy turns along the way
        D               G                 D
It'll throw you off if you don't hold on tight
A                         G
You can't really smile until you shed some tears
A                       G (walkdown)
I could die today or I might live on for years
D            G             D         G
I love this crazy tragic, sometimes almost magic
D       G  A/E    D
Awful, beautiful life
D            G             D         G
I love this crazy tragic, sometimes almost magic
D       G  A/E    D
Awful, beautiful life
