G A7 D7 G
Spend so much time waiting around I don't get much done
If you wait around awhile with me you'll see
Good things just happen to me
I don't like to give it my all, honey that's all I've got
Doesn't seem to matter what I do
I still have a good shot

Chorus
C G
You might say I don't have the time
You might say I'm not in my prime
You might say I don't stand a chance
C G A D7
But baby when you hear me sing

V2
All I've got are the gifts I've been given
Still tryin' to figure out how to use them
All I know is I ain't been livin' lately
I'm hungry babe I'm not starving yet
When my ribs start to show it's a real sure bet
I'll be fine dining and you'll be eating scraps

Chorus

Repeat V1

Chorus
D A Em G
Can't win if you don't play baby X2
Get in the game and stake your claim baby
Can't win if you don't play bay

Verse 1
D A G
Your chips are down and you're going through hell
They say if you're going through hell just keep going
'Cause the devil he knows when your soul is broken
Yeah the devil he knows when your soul is broken

Chorus

V2
Get up the nerve and step up to the plate
When you're striking out and you've got nothing left
Take one more swing and pray that it's your best
Take one more swing and pray that it's your best

Chorus

Bridge
Em G
Mama says don't play with fire
If you play with fire you might get burned
But scars fade baby
Em G A
That's something mama never learned

Chorus

This life honey is for the dogs and they don't even deserve it
I'm down and out and feeling low c'mon tell me how to fix this
These low down blues don't seem to stray too far from my aching brain
These low down blues are for the dogs, baby they got me howling

Chorus

V2
This life honey is for the dogs, make no bones about it
This new chain is rubbing hard, I almost want to break it
These low down blues don't seem to stray too far from my aching brain
These low down blues are for the dogs, baby they got me howling

Chorus

Repeat V1

E B7 E A
They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder
But in my case it tends to wander
This constant need for love and adoration
Leaves me cold when there's no one to mention

Chorus
Goddamn you look beautiful today
I love the way you smell and the way you taste
I'm going to hold you close so you can't get away
And I'll love you more each and every day

V2
What I have here well I wish there was more
You can't seem to give me what I'm asking for
Your love is strong but my heart's still breaking
'Cause all I do is think of you saying

Chorus

V3
I drink a lot to keep from thinking
That maybe I'm holding on to nothing
Maybe I have just the right idea
'Cause you won't say the words that I have to hear

Chorus

Couche-tard the time for sleep is now
Le lune is on the rise
Couche-tard the time for sleep is now
Close your heavy eyes

B7 C
Eyes, oh your eyes
Your eyes, oh your eyes X2
B7 C D7
Your eyes

V2
Couche-tard the morning sun she creeps
Into your darkened room
Couche-tard the morning sun she creeps
The time for sleep is soon

Soon, oh it's soon
So soon, oh it's soon X2
So soon

Never met a man that I couldn't tame,
Who woke up in the morning and didn't remember my name.
But mister all of that has changed.

You brought me back to earth,
I got my feet on the ground, on the ground, on the ground, on the ground. (x2)
Solid ground.

I never met a man that didn't get in my way,
I never met a man that didn't lead me astray.
I know your not that way.

You brought me back to earth,
I got my feet on the ground, on the ground, on the ground, on the ground. (x2)
Solid ground.

I finally met a man I couldn't change,
And honey I wouldn't have it any other way.
Love I'm praying that you'll stay.

You brought me back to earth,
I got my feet on the ground, on the ground, on the ground, on the ground. (x2)
Solid ground.

Solid ground,
Solid ground.
