Sacred Ground

	  		C(add9)   G    Gsus   G    (x2) 
INTRO 
 
G            
We got married in high school, 
      C(add9)               G   Gsus    
Had a baby when we turned 18. 
G         G/F#             Em       
 I bagged groceries in the daytime, 
   Am                      D 
At night I learned to fix TVs. 
         G                  G7 
When you come by things the hard way, 
         C                    G    Gsus G 
Well you learn how to hold on tight 
   Am                  G 
So don't think you can waltz in here 
    C                  D      Dsus    D 
And take her without a fight. 
 
 
C                    D              G       Gsus G 
This ain't just some mere love come lately, 
      C                  D                   G     (fill) 
Its a precious thing you don't know nothing about. 
C                     D  
We were joined in the eyes of the lord, 
       G       G/F#     Em 
In the eyes of our home town. 
              Am 
Why don't you leave her alone? 
       D                  C(add9)   G  Gsus G  
You're treadin' on sacred ground. 
 
 
G 
Guess I took for granted, 
          C(add9)               G     
She would never look at someone else. 
          G/F#          Em 
Now I got some patching up to do, 
       Am      C         D 
Oh and I don't need your help. 
G                  G7 
 I know you're the leaving kind,  
     C               G    
Well I sure hope you will. 
  Am                G 
Before she goes and burns those bridges 
   C               D      Dsus D 
It took so long to build. 
 
 
 
C                    D              G       Gsus G 
This ain't just some mere love come lately, 
      C                  D                   G      (fill) 
Its a precious thing you don't know nothing about. 
C                     D  
We were joined in the eyes of the lord, 
       G       G/F#     Em 
In the eyes of our home town. 
              Am 
Why don't you leave her alone? 
       D                  G      Em 
You're treadin' on sacred ground. 
 
 
 
          Am               G 
Go on and leave her alone, 
              C             D 
Why don't you leave her alone? 
          Am         Bm 
Go on and leave her alone, 
       C           D      C(add9)   G 
You're treadin' on sacred ground.
