Song:  "Carry On" by Tim Mcgraw
Album:  A Place in the Sun

This is a great song.  Now that I had to listen to the words to
transcribe it, I realize that this song has a really good message.  He
sings this in 'Ab'.

Capo 1st fret

Intro alternates between G and Em.

Verse 1

G                                               G/F#
Mama went to sleep one night and never woke up
Daddy cried a tear into her old coffee cup.
Now all he want to do is drink the hurt all away.
If Mama was here, I know what Mama would say.


G           G/F#  Em
Carry on, Carry on
What don't kill us makes us strong
D        G
Carry on

Verse 2

G                                                  G/F#
Little sister's husband ran off with her best friend
Left her and the babies all alone again
It hurts to know the hurt that she's going through
I know that she'll do what she's got to do

(Repeat Chorus)


C                                         D
Nobody ever said that life was going to be fair
C                                         D
You're never gonna get nowhere by running scared
If you look down deep inside you'll find
D                          C     D          G
The faith that makes you strong,    Carry on

Instrumental   Play chords as in chorus

Verse 3

G                                           G/F#
I try to walk the sunny side of the street
Don't let no shadows tangle up my feet
There ain't no troubles that we can't rise above
With a hand full of faith and a heart full of love

Repeat Chorus

G/F#    Em
Carry on
What don't kill us makes us strong
D       G                G/F#   Em
Carry on,   Carry on,   Carry on
            C   D      G
Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Carry on
