THE FINE LINE
Montgomery Gentry
Sumbitted by: David

This song can be played in both standard tuning and double drop D tuning.  It's
easy to play and sing. It's also fun to play with different interpretations of 
the song.

All three verses are played using a strum of the D Major chord.  When Eddie
begins singing "so I think I'll just set here..." return to the D Major
pattern.  Listen  to the recording to get the strum pattern right.

Tuning: EADGBe

Intro:
C G D F C D
 
Verse 1:

D
I told my mom goodbye when I was eighteen.
She told me bye for good at age sixty-three.
She was an angel right here on earth;
There was sure a fine line between heaven and her.
 
Verse 2:

D
I went and married the woman I loved.
Three years of me later she had enough.
Just one more angel I didn't deserve;
There was sure a fine line between heaven and her.

Chorus:
           C          G        D
Feels like everything I love I lose.
    F          G          D
God giveth and He takes away.
C            G              D
Prayin's the right thing to do,
      F               G          A
But I don't feel like prayin' today...
     D
So I think I'll just set here, 

And drink for a spell...

Cause there's sure a fine line between heaven and
hell.
 
[Play intro chords twice, with emphasis!]

Verse 3:

D
Now I'm headed nowhere ninety nine miles an hour.
In a '62 Dodge with three hundred horsepower.
If she holds together I might get the nerve...
[silence]
To cross that fine line between heaven and her.
 
Chorus:
           C          G        D
Feels like everything I love I lose.
    F          G          D
God giveth and He takes away.
C            G              D
Prayin's the right thing to do,
      F               G          A
But I don't feel like prayin' today...

    D
So maybe I'll just slow down and drink for a spell.
                               [silence]
'Cause there's sure a fine line between heaven and
hell.
 
Outro: 
Play intro chords once, with emphasis!


This is how I play the song using only one acoustic
guitar.  It can also be played
using Double Drop D tuning: DADGBd, and play the D
chord shown below.  But you'll
have to revoice the G Major chord in the Chorus to
make it sound right.  Another
cool substitution is to arpeggiate an Asus2 at the end
of the chorus.

Asus2
