G/B            F#/A            E/G      D/F#    C/E     
Staring at the pictures of the runaways on the wall 
G/B         F#/A            E/G       D/F#       C/G 
Seems like, these days, you couldn't run away at all 
G/B         F#/A          E/G    D/F#     C/E 
Even if you did, what you got to run away tox 
        G/B        F#/A          E/G         D/F#    C/G 
Just another drunk daddy with a white man's point of view 
       G/B      F#/A   E/G        D/F#    C/E 
I can see you in my mind's eye, catching light 
G/B              F#/A        E/G           D/F#    C/G 
Sleep beside the river if we make it out of town tonight 
        G/B      F#/A              E/G      D/F#    C/E 
You can strip in Portland from the day you turn sixteen 
        G/B          F#/A     E/G    D/F#  C/G 
You got one thing to sell and benzodiazepine 
D                                    Gmaj7                Cadd9 
Ten years ago I might have seen you dancing in a different light, 
    D             Gmaj7            Cadd9 
and offered up my help in different ways, 
                          G/B F#/A E/G D/F# C/E 
but those were different days 
                       G/B F#/A E/G D/F# C/G 
Those were different days 

  
      G/B       F#/A        E/G       D/F#    C/E 
Had a girl back home and we shared her single bed 
        G/B            F#/A        E/G          D/F#    C/G 
When I whispered in her ear, she believed every word I said 
       G/B       F#/A       E/G     D/F#        C/E 
If she didn't believe, she didn't dare give me slack 
         G/B       F#/A          E/G        D/F#   C/G 
Or it was 'Baby, I love you, get off of my goddamn back' 
G/B       F#/A      E/G       D/F#   C/E 
Time went by and I left and I left again 
G/B           F#/A            E/G     D/F#   C/G 
Jesus loves a sinner but the highway loves a sin 
    G/B   F#/A       E/G       D/F#    C/E 
My daddy told me, I believe he told me true that: 
      G/B          F#/A       E/G     D/F#    C/G 
'The right thing's always the hardest thing to do' 
D                                    Gmaj7          Cadd9 
Ten years ago I might have stuck around for another night, 
D                   Gmaj7            Cadd9 
and used her in a thousand different ways, 
                         G/B F#/A E/G D/F# C/E 
but those were different days 
                      G/B F#/A E/G D/F# C/G 
Those were different days 

  
         D           Gmaj7           Cadd9     G 
And the story's only mine to live and die with 
     D            Gmaj7         Cadd9  G 
The answer's only mine to come across, 
        D                  Gmaj7           Cadd9      G 
but the ghosts that I got scared and I got high with 
              D      Cadd9 
look a little lost 

  
D                                     Gmaj7           Cadd9 
Ten years ago I might have thought I didn't have the right 
   D                  Gmaj7          Cadd9 
To say the things an outlaw wouldn't say, 
                         G/B F#/A E/G D/F# C/E 
But those were different days 
                      G/B F#/A E/G D/F# C/G 
Those were different days 
                      G/B F#/A E/G D/F# C/E 
Those were different days 

G/B F#/A E/G D/F# C/G
