"The Good Stuff" 
Written By:  Craig Wiseman/Jim Collins 
Performed By:  Kenny Chesney on CD "No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems" 
G                           D 
Well me and my lady had our first big fight, 
C                                G 
So I drove around till I saw the neon lights,  
C                        G                        C G C 
At a corner bar, and it just seemed right, so I pulled up, 
G                              D 
Not a soul around but the ol' barkeep, 
C                       G 
Down at the end lookin half asleep, 
C                          G                          C G C 
But he walked up and said what'll it be? I said the Good Stuff, 
C                               D       C                    D 
He didn't reach around for the whiskey, He didn't pour me a beer,  
C                        D 
His blue eyes kinda went misty,  
Said you can't find that here, 
      G                              D 
Cause it's the first long kiss on a second date 
C                            G 
Mamma's all worried when you get home late 
     C                        G 
And droppin the ring in the spaghetti plate,  
C           G                    C     D 
Cause your hands are shaking so much 
   G                         D 
It's the way she looks with rice in her hair 
C                        G 
Eatin burnt suppers the whole first year 
C                          G                 C G C 
And askin for seconds, to keep her from tearin up, 
     D               G  D C G C 
Yeah man that's the Good Stuff 
G                                D 
He grabbed a carton of milk and poured a glass 
C                       G 
I smiled and said I'll have some of that 
C                              G                    C G C 
We sat there and talked as an hour passed like ol' friends 
G                                     D 
Saw a black and white picture and it caught my stare 
C                               G     
Was a pretty girl with bouffant hair 
        C                  G                         C G C 
He said that's my Bonnie, takin bout a year after we wed 
        C                        D               C                   D 
He said spent five years in the bottle when the cancer took her from me 
     C                          D 
I've been sober for three years now,  
     C              G                 C     D 
Cause the one thing stronger than the whiskey was the 
     G                    D 
The sight of her holdn my baby girl 
     C                   G              
The way she adored that string of pearls  
   C                         G 
I gave her the day that our youngest boy Earl  
C                 G        C    D 
Married his high school love 
G                             D 
And it's a new T-shirt sayin I'm a Grand Pa 
C                                 G 
Being right there as our time got small 
    C                           G                C G C 
And holding her hand, when the good lord called her up 
     D               G D C G C 
Yeah man that's the Good Stuff 
G D C G C 
        D                         G 
He said when you get home she'll start to cry 
      D                      G 
When she says I'm sorry, say so am I 
     G    D           C      D       C 
And look into those eyes so deep in love  
And drink it up 
       G               D   C G C 
Cause that's the Good Stuff 
 G          D       C G C 
That's the Good Stuff 
That's all there is to it folks!  Just listen to the song for the chord
progression to get it right.
