Standard Tuning

(When playing the C#m and B, play them as bar chords and alternate with letting the B and high E string ring 
out. In the Verses and Outro walk up on the E string in-between B and A.  The E walk up is the 6th string -
2nd fret to 4th fret before playing the A. Listen to the song to get accurate timing)

[Intro]
C#m B A (x2)

[Verse]
Well he said,
C#m         B                       
Hey, Mister can you tell me how far
            A
A walk it is to the nearest bar
C#m              B                   A        
So I can turn around and run the other way?
C#m               B  
Got a tendency to tie one on
                          A
If stupid was a shirt my sleeves would be long
C#m                    B         A
I'm never too far from making my next mistake

[Chorus]
            E                                                A
'Cause it's hard to outrun the devil when he's sittin' on your shoulders
    B         C#m                    B                              A
And you can't feel the warmer side of life when your world's gettin' colder
   B         C#m                    B                              A
You know I'm gonna be a better man for it when my dark days are over.
B                      C#m                      B                A
But it's hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel this side of sober

[Verse]
             C#m             B   
And he said, Yeah, I'm a God fearing hard working man
                   A
But put the wrong thing in my hand
C#m                 B                   A 
And I'm a back slider dyin' down a dead end road
C#m                     B   
It all started with my first sip of beer
                A
It's all a blur how it got from there to here
C#m              B                             A
And twelve steps feels like a million more miles to go

[Chorus]
            E                                                A
'Cause it's hard to outrun the devil when he's sittin' on your shoulders
    B         C#m                    B                              A
And you can't feel the warmer side of life when your world's gettin' colder
   B         C#m                    B                              A
You know I'm gonna be a better man for it when my dark days are over.
        B               C#m                      B                A
But it's hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel this side of sober

[Bridge]
G#m                           A
     I paid for my coffee and stepped out into the night
             G#m                           A                  D
And he said, if I can just make it home today will make twenty-nine.

[Chorus]
            E                                                A
'Cause it's hard to outrun the devil when he's sittin' on your shoulders
    B         C#m                    B                              A
And you can't feel the warmer side of life when your world's gettin' colder
   B         C#m                    B                              A
You know I'm gonna be a better man for it when my dark days are over.
        B               C#m                      B                A
But it's hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel this side of sober

C#m   B               A              C#m    B   A
                      This side of sober.

[Outro]
Well he said,
C#m         B                      
Hey, Mister can you tell me how far
            A
A walk it is to the nearest bar
C#m              B                     A        
So I can turn around and run the other way?
