Title: The Nerve
Artist: George Strait (The MAN!!)
Songwriter: Bobby Braddock
From the MCA Nashville Album: Carrying Your Love With Me

Intro: E

E                                       A2   E
I'm glad I had the nerve to talk to you that day
A               E           B           G#m
I could just as easily have let you get away
E               A2 E    C#m      G#m     A
In that crowded airport far from my home town
A                E                G#m7     B  A
If I had lost my courage then you wouldn't be around
A                  E
I'm glad I had the nerve

E                                           A2   E
And I'm glad he had the nerve to get down on his knees
A                     E            B                 G#m
And say I bought this ring for you won't you wear it please
E                     A2  E           C#m     G#m   A
My daddy sure touched something in my momma's heart somehow.
A            E               G#m7    B        A
If he hadn't I sure wouldn't be here with you now
A                   E
I'm glad he had the nerve

E                     A
Or I never would have lived like this
   E
Or learned like this
   A
Or laughed like this
   B
Or loved like this

    E                             A2     E
I'm glad he had the nerve to sail across the sea
   A                 E                B               G#m
My great-grandaddy's great-grandpa in eighteen thirty-three
   E             A2 E          C#m   G#m      A
He met an Indian maiden in the Smoky Mountain mist
A              E                 G#m7    B   A
If they hadn't crossed that line I would not exist
A                     E
I'm glad they had the nerve

E                                           A2   E
And I'm glad He had the nerve while staring into space
   A            E       B          G#m
To give this universe a time and a place
E             A2 E       C#m  G#m    A
With one tiny atom or an Adam and an Eve
A                E         G#m7 B   A
However you look at it whatever you believe
A                   E
I'm glad He had the nerve

E                      A
Or we never would have lived like this
   E
Or learned like this
   A
Or laughed like this
   B
Or loved like this
      A              E
Thank God He had the nerve

E                                           A2   E
And I'm glad I had the nerve to talk to you that day
