Stopping By

	  		

Intro: C#m   A   E (2x) 

C#m          A              E              (B) 
Driving to a baseball game, on a Friday afternoon 
C#m          A                E        E 
Hotter than Hell in Atlanta, Georgia  
C#m              A        E           (B) 
Guess it's been 15 years since I came through here 
C#m          A                 E          E 
Probably should have called to warn you 
                    B              A 
But I'm stopping by, I'm stopping by, Daddy 

(C#m) break 1 measure 

C#m          A                 E            (B) 
How did your life turned out? Do you ever think about 
C#m         A         E            E 
teenage girl in Chattannoga? 
C#m             A               E                (B) 
Ever tell your folks the truth?,that might been the last of you 
C#m          A                E                 E 
It would have been a shame we hardly knew you 
                   B                A   
Now I'm stopping by, I'm stopping by, Daddy 

(C#m) break 1 measure 
  
C#m                         A                E            E 
Think the best of me is still standing in the doorway 
C#m                       A                   E           E 
Counting cars and counting days and counting years 
C#m                       A                 E             E 
I could say you made me go through life the hard way 
                    B                      A 
It might have been worse if you were here              

C#m               A              E               (B) 
Looking through a picture book, this one I think my mama took 
C#m              A              E              E 
You couldn't have been much over 20 
C#m                      A                 E           (B) 
You're shirtless in your cut off jeans and hand a lollypop to me  
C#m             A                   E           E 
Probably asked where you got the money 
C#m           A         E      (B) 
Picture on another page, I recognize my eyes have aged 
C#m          A            E          E 
I'd been alone for quite a while then 
C#m             A             E              (B) 
Trying to get a match to burn, waiting on a latch to turn 
C#m           A                E       E 
I still have difficulty smiling 
                   B                 A 
But I'm stopping by, I'm stopping by, Daddy 

(C#m) break 1 measure 

C#m             A                   E           E 
Think the best of me is still standing in the doorway 
C#m        A         E           E 
Whatever's left is headed south on 85 
C#m       A            E           E 
Passing families on vacation headed your way 
                           B                      A 
They look so happy and alive, that I'm stopping by, Daddy
