"That's Why I'm Here"
Recorded by:  Kenny Chesney
Album:  I Will Stand

Transcribed by:  J. Cody Stilwell 

Chords/Words were modified from Micahaj's version 
(12/23/97)

Most of the actual music is piano...but it converted nicely to guitar.
I showed the length of the notes the best I could..but if you listen to
the song, I think it can be picked up rather easily.

Capo 2nd Fret

D                     G         A        A

Verse #1
D              G
No I ain't had nothing to drink
A                      D
I knew that's probably what you'd think
G            A               D*
If I dropped by this time of night
D        G
Remember way back when
  A             D
I promised you I'd drop in
G               A                    D   D
At one of those meetings down at the Y
      G                   A
Well, they started talkin bout steps you take
     D**     1         2          3
Mistakes you made, the hearts you break
        G             G
And the price you pay
         A         A   
I almost walked away
          G               A
You could hear a pin drop When this old man
   D**       1               2       3  
Stood up and said I'm gonna' say it again
       G            G
Like I do every week
              A            A*
For those who don't know me


Chorus:  (chords or pick)
D               G
It's the simple things in life
         A                  D
Like the kids at home and a loving wife
         G                        A
That you miss the most,  when you lose control
         G                        A
And everything you love starts to disappear
    D                1        2       3
The devil takes your hand and says no fear
          G         A
Have another shot,  just one more beer
                 G       A no chord                   Intro tab
Yeah,  I've been there,                that's why I'm here

Verse #2
D                  G
This ole boy stood up in the aisle
A                       D
Said he'd been living a life of denial
       G           A                   D      D
And he cried as he talked about wasted years
D            G
I couldn't believe what I heard
A              D
It was my life word for word
G                     A            A*
And all of the sudden it was clear



           G                A    
I know for us it may be too late 
             G
But it would mean the world to me
            A
If you were there when I stand to say


Chorus:  (chords or pick)
D               G
It's the simple things in life
         A                  D
Like the kids at home and a loving wife
         G                        A
That you miss the most,  when you lose control
         G                        A
And everything you love starts to disappear
    D                1        2       3
The devil takes your hand and says no fear
          G         A
Have another shot,  just one more beer
                 G       A                  D*    1  2  3
Yeah, I've been there,      that's why I'm here
                 G   A  no chord                 Intro tab
Oh I've been there,              that's why I'm here  


Hope this helps.  Long live country music.....
