Back Up Against the Wall
Travis Tritt

Intro:  B           A/B          E             D 
       
        B           A/B          E           D  B
 
B
I was dealin' up and down the highway
                                   E
Till they caught me with a heavy load
     F#       
They sentenced me to hard labor
  E7                           B
Workin' on the side of the road
                            
Now I don't deny I was guilty
                        E
And I know I broke the law
F#
I was hungry and broke and couldn't see no hope
            E7                   B
And my back was up against the wall

Chorus:
B
Now I'm right outside your window
                          E
Honey, open up and let me in
    F#               
I broke out of jail this mornin'
         E                    B
And I ain't never goin' back again

I just had to stop by for a minute
                           E
And I can't stay long at all
      F#                   
'Cause I gotta run, you see I'm under the gun
      E7                     B
And my back is up against the wall

(Back to first Part of Intro then solo)

Verse 
B
I was shackled to a three-time loser
               E
A man named Jefferson
F#                 
One night we got to talkin'
    E7                    B
And I asked him what he'd done

He said a man fell over my razor

In the middle of a bar room brawl
    F#       
But don't you see, it was him or me
            E7                   B
And my back was up against the wall

Chorus (2 x's)

Ending
F#  
Cause I gotta run, you see I'm under the gun
       E7                    B
And my back is up against the wall

B     F#   
Yeah, I gotta run, you see I'm under the gun
       E7                     B
And my back is up against the wall

B        A/B      E           D B


Note the A/B in the Intro is like an A with a B note on top
