BR-549 - Lifetime to prove


(verse 1)
 
F
My pockets are empty though my wife has sent me,
       Bb
To the store for some cigarettes and bread,
          F
I started walkin there, got as far as the square,
       C
Then smell of beer went to my head, 
    F
The thing about beer, it can make a man hear, 
Bb
Voices from days long since past,
         F                       C
And with every third drink it'll make you think,
          Bb                C
That your youth will always last,
 


(chorus)
          Bb
No matter which way you move,
           F                        C
It takes a lifetime to prove to yourself,
                  Dm
I could have been more,
      Bb              F     C               F
I got one foot in the door, I just want one more,
 


(verse 2)
I thought of a time when my future was mine,
IT didn't matter what anyone said,
I was handsome and strong and when I walked along,
I stood erect and looked straight ahead,
But when I lost my fight, goin to turn tonight,
Somewhere along the line Ilost my will,
And now I'm sitting here, my life's full of beer,
And I try to pretend it's not real,

 
(chorus)
          Bb
No matter which way you move,
           F                        C
It takes a lifetime to prove to yourself,
                  Dm
I could have been more,
      Bb              F     C               F
I got one foot in the door, I just want one more,




SOLO (CHORD CHANGE TO G F=G Bb=C C=D) 
(verse 3)

G
These days I barely survive on lot number five,
      C
In the mobile acres on the eastside of town,
    G
I swore this kind of life I'd never lead,

   D
I guess I let too many things get me down,
     G
If my papy could see what they done to me,
   C
I swear he'd march down there and make it all right,
               G                  D
But he's long since gone and I'm old enough now,
                     C             D
I should be able to fight my own fight,

 
(chorus)
          C
No matter which way you move,
           G                        D
It takes a lifetime to prove to yourself,
                  Em
I could have been more,
      C               G     D               G
I got one foot in the door, I just want one more,
      C               G     D               G
I got one foot in the door, I just want one more,
