                    A BETTER MAN  by Clint Black


INTRO:   |A-E-F#m-E  |B     |A-E-B--B7|E

E                         F#m
What do you say when it's over?
           A               F#m         E
Don't know if I should say anything at all.
E                            F#m
One day we're rollin' in the clover,
A              B                E
Next thing you know we take the fall.

        E                                   F#m
Still I think about the years since I first met you,
        A                 F#m              E
And the way it might have been without you here.
        E                                 F#m
I don't know if words from me can still upset you,
              A                B            E
But I've just got to make this memory stand clear.

CHORUS:            A    E   F#m E    B
        I know I'm leav-in'  he-re a better man,
            A    E   F#m  E   B
        For know-in' you this way.
                 A        E    F#m   E     B
        Things I couldn't do before, now I think I can.
                A    E   B             E
        And I'm leav-in' here a better man.

REPEAT INTRO:  |A-E-F#m-E  |B     |A-E-B--B7|E

Guess I always knew I couldn't hold you,
But I'd never be the one to set you free.
Just like some old nursery rhyme your mama told you,
You still believe in some old meant-to-be's.

        Still I'm leav-in' here a better man,
        For know-in' you this way.
        Things I couldn't do before, now I think I can.
        And I'm leav-in' here a better man.

        Yes, I'm leav-in' here a better man,
        For know-in' you this way.
        Things I couldn't do before, now I know I can.
        And I'm leav-in' here a better man.

BREAK:  |A-E-F#m-E  |B

                 |A - E - B   -  B      |E       |E\stop
        Yes, I'm leav-in' here a better man.
