Wish I Hadn't Stayed So Long

	  		Intro: A   Asus    A  Asus 
 
         A                             D                    A 
Shooting stars and whiskey bottles all scattered across the yard 
         D                   A                                 E 
I'd have stayed back home in Houston if I'd known it'd be this hard 
       A                         D               A 
Ah but as it is I'm busted broke down across the bay 
      D                A                                  E 
And I might not make December if we keep carrying on this way 
       A                               D                A 
Pretty girls and deep depressions keep falling from the sky 
      D               A                             E 
I got all the time in heaven but no sense to wonder why 
        A                                  D                  A 
And the nights have all gone crazy and the bars have all shut down 
    D                A                                    E 
One day I swear I'll blow it all, pack up, and leave this town 
 
 
        D              A        D                  A 
And sometimes I get so tired of telling right from wrong 
A               E                 D              A 
Hey, I'm glad I came, just wish I hadn't stayed so long 
 
 
A   Asus    A  Asus 
 
       A                      D               A 
Here I am in Music City, long nights and neon signs 
      D               A                            E                  
And I can't seem to remember what I came so far to find 
       A                          D             A 
Police cars and paper money motel rooms and cigarettes 
           D                   A                                 E 
Yeah, they tell you, you ain't nothin' just in case you might forget 
      A                             D          A                                  
I can hear the country music in the window up above 
        D             A                            E                
Do they do it for the money, do they do it for the love? 
        A                             D                 A                
Bourbon eyes and stolen pistols seems all that comes my way 
          D                A                              E                      
I'm gonna burn down all my bridges, grab a car, and drive away 
 
 
        D             A             D              A                     
And sometimes I can't believe I did all that for a song 
A               E                 D              A (solo) 
Hey, I'm glad I came, just wish I hadn't stayed so long 
 
 
Solo:  A     E    D     E     D 
 
         A              D             A 
We could make Louisiana in two hours' time 
         D               A                         E 
We could pull off of the highway by the big casino sign 
         A                          D              A 
We could take up all our wishes and bet 'em all on black 
        D               A                                E 
Hit the lights of Mississippi with the south wind at our back 
  
 
         D               A         D               A 
And it's always been the same down every road I've gone 
A               E                 D              A 
Hey, I'm glad I came, just wish I hadn't stayed so long 
 
 
A   Asus    A  Asus     A   Asus    A
