That's What Keeps Her Getting By

	  D  G  A  Asus A 
INTRO 
 
 
G(add9) 
Stack of bills on the kitchen table, 
 
Out go the lights and off goes the cable. 
D    
 If she don't pay em by the 15th, 
     A 
Then it don't look like she's gonna be able. 
G(add9) 
 Two mouths to feed, two jobs barely get it done, 
 
A lot on the plate for a single mom of 31. 
         D                         A                     G 
From the outside lookin' in, you'd think her world would crumble, 
                                        A 
But she keeps finding that light at the end of the tunnel. 
 
 
    D       F#m       G 
But somehow she keeps getting by, 
              D                         Bm      
The only soft shoulder she knows is off some old broken road, 
      A                  G 
She's goin' down...she's goin' down. 
D         F#m            G 
Sometimes she feels like throwin' in the towel, 
    A     Bm             G                A               Bm 
But she's not, no matter what she's gonna give her kids a better life, 
          A     G 
Than what she's got... 
                A                   G(add9)  A  Asus A 
And that's what keeps her getting by. 
 
 
G(add9) 
 Friday at noon its parent/teacher day, 
 
Its Johnson Elementary or half a shift's pay, 
D 
She wouldn't miss it for the world. 
G(add9) 
She looks around at all the daddies in the room, 
 
Wishin' her kids had one of them too. 
     D                             A                          G 
This ain't how she planned it, her life's goin' ten different ways, 
                              A 
Its off to little league, and then to ballet.. 
 
 
 
    D       F#m       G 
But somehow she keeps getting by, 
              D                         Bm      
The only soft shoulder she knows is off some old broken road, 
      A                  G 
She's goin' down...she's goin' down. 
D         F#m            G 
Sometimes she feels like throwin' in the towel, 
    A     Bm             G                A               Bm 
But she's not, no matter what she's gonna give her kids a better life, 
          A     G 
Than what she's got... 
                A                    D 
And that's what keeps her getting by. 
 
 
C              G         D 
 In every dark cloud oh, she keeps findin' that 
F       G     A 
 Silver lining. 
 
 
D  F#m  G

D         F#m            G 
Sometimes she feels like throwin' in the towel, 
    A     Bm             G                A               Bm 
But she's not, no matter what she's gonna give her kids a better life, 
          A     G 
Than what she's got... 
                A                    Bm   A  G 
And that's what keeps her getting by. 
                  A                   G(add9)  A  Asus A 
Yeah, that's what keeps her getting by.
