Artist: Trace Adkins
Title: Thankful Man
Album: Chrome

Intro - C - G - Am - F

(verse 1)
C                   G
My daddy was blue collar,
     Am                F
He worked for the man all of his life,
  C                                 G
He showed up when he didn't want to be there,
   Am                           F
A man of his word, believed in doing things right,


(bridge)
    Am          G
I remember when I was a kid,
     F                  D7
He'd say time and time again,
        C                 G
It's a good life, it's a real good life,
F          G        C
And I'm a thankful man,


(chorus)
      Am                F
I'm a thankful man for every turn,
          G                  C
On every highway I've been down,
      Am                         F
Every mile I've lost, every crossroad stop,
       C                      G
Every storm that turned me around,
          Am            G            F
Oh, it's better than I could have planned,
Am           G     F
It's made me who I am,
       C                  G
It's a good life, it's a real good life,
F           G      C - G - Am - F
And I'm a thankful man,


(verse 2)
My mama was a dreamer,
But she was the rock that we all leaned on,
She taught me about the lessons in life,
The difference between what's right and wrong,

(bridge)
And every word was a gift from her,
That helped me understand,
It's a good life, it's a real good life,
And I'm a thankful man,


(chorus)
      Am                F
I'm a thankful man for every turn,
          G                  C
On every highway I've been down,
      Am                         F
Every mile I've lost, every crossroad stop,
       C                      G
Every storm that turned me around,
          Am            G            F
Oh, it's better than I could have planned,
Am           G     F
It's made me who I am,
       C                  G
It's a good life, it's a real good life,
F           G      C
And I'm a thankful man,


(lead chords - Am - F - C - G - Am - F - C - G)


(ending)
       Am            G            F
It's better than I could have planned,
Am           G     F
It's made me who I am,
       C                  G
It's a good life, it's a real good life,
Am                  F
And I'm a thankful man,
       C                  G
It's a good life, it's a real good life,
F           G       C - G - Am - F - C
And I'm a thankful man
