               D                          G         D 
She said 'it's none of my business but it breaks my heart' 
          D/B                     G        D 
Dropped a dozen cheap roses in my shopping cart 
        D                        G        D 
Made it out to the truck without breaking down 
D/B                         G      D 
Everybody knows you're in a speed trap town

It's a Thursday night but there's a high school game

Sneak a bottle up the bleachers and forget my name 
      D                   G      D 
These 5'8' bastards run a shallow cross 
      D/B                     G          D 
It's a boy's last dream and a man's first loss

Em G D D/A But it never did occur to me to leave, 'til tonight Em G D When I realized he'll never be all right Em G D D/A Sign my name and say my last goodbye, then decide Em G D That there's nothing here that can't be left behind
