Proud Souls
Jason Boland

This song is best played finger picked

A               E
I got drunk by myself last night
     F#m                D
they say it's no way to make things right
A                  D                  E   FILL
I just didn't have anything better to do.
A                         E                 
The dog was asleep on the living room rug and
  F#m                  D 
I watched a show about crime and drugs,
A                    E                    A 
Punished a bottle of bourbon until it was through.
A                 E  
I don't care that I can't sleep
    F#M               D
I'd just as soon stay up all week
A                       D                 E  FILL  
I might get some things done while others dream.
A                        E
The heater broke and the room got cold
       F#m                  D   
and my knees and ankles say I'm gettin' older
A                 E                      A
the phone finally rang but it wasn't for me

C#m             D
If everyone was together
        A               E
I guess no one would be alone
A               D                 E  FILL    
Life's a lot of trade offs in the end.
C#m              D
Somewhere in the fields of heather
A                         D
The proud souls laugh and love together
A                 E                  A
somewhere between passion and losing friends

A                        E               
Sleep finally came but I woke up alone
   F#m                      D     
my head was next to the telephone
A                D                     E   FILL
I gave the sun a cussin' as I drew the shades.
A                        E    
The one thing that seems always true
     F#m               D
when I'm hung over the sky is blue.
A                 E                        A
A rough night for me will make a hell of a day
A                       E
I believe in ghosts and democracy
         F#m                       D
and that each man should leave his legacy
A                 D              E    FILL
be that mans work great or be it small.
A                  E   
I don't believe in everything like
    F#m                       D
The designated hitter or that diamond rings
A                      E                A
will make love last forever for one and all.
