VERSE 1
           C              G/B
I promised you, on the day we wed
Am                 G                   F
?Till death do us part, yeah that was what I said
                C                G/B
But things have changed, since I made that vow
Am                  G               F
The love I felt for you is so much deeper now
   Dm                     G
So I?ve made up my mind
 
VERSE 2
                 C            G/B
When the family sings, Sweet By and By
     Am               G              F
They might as well go on and tell us both good-bye
                       C            G/B
Because you've come to be my heart and soul
   Am                  G                   F
The air I breathe, the reason there?s life in these bones

So I?ve made up my mind, girl if it?s your time

They can dig two graves, just carve one stone

Cause without you here, I won't last long
                F      G                     Am
Your love?s the blood running through these veins

So if He calls you home, they can dig two graves
 
BRIDGE
G                               F             C
Surely the good Lord won?t ask me to be that strong
G                                   Dm           F
Because it kills me just to think about you being gone

They can dig two graves, just carve one stone

Cause without you here, I won't last long

Your love?s the blood running through these veins

So if He calls you home, they can dig two graves

Tell the Lord above, no need to wait

Better Class Of Loser

Better Class Of Loser Guitar Chords & Lyrics
G, C, G
 
           G                      C        G
Im gettin out of this highrise penthouse suite
  G                                D
where we pretend lifes rosey and sweet
      G                         C      G
Goin back to the folks that I used to know
 G                 D                G
where everyone is what they seem to be
 G                                    C              G
And these high class friends that you like to hang around
 G                                         D
when they look my way their always lookin down
          G                           C      G
And I'm tired of you spending every dime I make
                        D                    G
to finance this way of life I've learned to hate
 
CHORUS
           C                         G
I'm goin back to a better class of losers
     G                            D
This uptown livins really got me down
          G                                 C       G
I need friends who dont pay their bills on home computers
          A7                              D
and they buy their coffee beans already ground
 C                                    G                 C
You think its disgraceful that they drink three dollar wi-i-ine
        G               D             G
But a better class of loser suits me fine
 
(Second verse)
 
You said the grass is greener on the other side
but from where i stand i cant see grass at all
and the concrete and the steel wont change the way you feel
it takes more than caviar to have a ball

If I didn't have you I'd long ago 
      B7                   E
been left in the dark out in the cold. 
 A                   E
Blowing around from town to town

If I didn't have you I know I'd be

shining like a beacon on a cold dark night.
         E                    A            E
And the sun came up and the skies turned blue.
         E                         B7        E
No I wouldn't have nothing if I didn't have you 
 
 
VERSE 4
 
        E                         A      E
Well I count my blessings every night I pray 
           E                         B7       E
that the Lord lets me keep you just one more day. 
            E                      A    E
And every day He does 'cause God knows too

that I wouldn't have nothing if I didn't have you.

Diggin’ Up Bones

Diggin’ Up Bones Guitar Chords & Lyrics
VERSE 1
         C/G
   Last night I dug your picture out from my old dresser drawer
 
   I set it on the table and I talked to it 'til four
                                                F
   I read some old love letters right up 'til the break of dawn
             C/G                  G              C/G
   Yeah I've been sittin' alone diggin' up bones
 
 
VERSE 2
         C/G
   Then I went through the jewelry and I found our wedding rings
 
   I've put mine on my finger and I gave yours a fling
                                              F
   Across crossed this lonely bedroom of our recent broken home
                C/G                 G              C/G
   Yeah tonight I'm sittin' alone diggin' up bones

   Exhuming things that's better left alone
             C/G                      F
   I'm resurrecting memories of love that's dead and gone
                C/G                 G              C/G
   Yeah tonight I'm sittin' alone diggin' up bones
 
 
VERSE 3
         C/G
   And I went to the closet and I found some things in there
 
   Like that pretty negligee that I bought you to wear
                                               F
   And I recall how good you looked each time you had it on

My boss'll tell you that I've been to work all week on time

Loretta said this ain't no kind of way to raise a family

She left the clothes out on the clothes line and the dishes in the sink

So I guess she knows that she ain't comin' back

I gave him the right to tell my wife that I can't come around

The night I knocked a hole in her front door

And Loretta took my keys and she made me wait outside

But she didn't call the law she called a cab

And as I pulled away I saw something in her eyes

So I reckon that she knows I ain't so bad

He Walked On Water Guitar Chords & Lyrics
VERSE 1
           D                  G/D
He wore starched white shirts buttoned at the neck,
         D                              A/E
and he'd sit in the shade and watch the chickens peck.
          D                  G/D
And his teeth were gone, but what the heck,
D              A            D      G  A
I thought that he walked on water.
 
   D                    G
He said he was a cowboy when he was young.
          D                        A
He could handle a rope and he was good with a gun.
    D                         G
And my mama's daddy was his oldest son,--
    D              A            D
and I thought that he walked on water.
 
 
CHORUS
                    G                   D
If the story's told,  only heaven knows.

But his hat seemed to me like an old halo.
D7                       G                  D
  And although his wings,  they were never seen.

I thought that he walked on water.

Then he tied a cord to the end of a mop,
           D                    A
and said, "Son, here's a pony, keep her at a trot."
    D                                   G
And I'd ride in circles while he laughed  alot.
     D          A     D
Then I'd flop down beside him.
 
           Bm                  A
And he was ninety years old in sixty-three
    G               A
and I loved him and he loved me.
     G                   A
And lord, I cried the day  he died,
       D              A            D
 
'cause I thought that he walked on water.
 
 
CHORUS

If the story's told,  only heaven knows.

  And although his wings,  they were never seen.

        G                           D              A
But you live with decisions that you make in your life

That's the story that our preacher told last Sunday,
      C
as he held that blood-stained bible up
    G            Gsus4
for all of us to see
                   Am                Am7/G
He said, bless the farmer, and the teacher,
         F
and that preacher
    F         Dm                     G          Gsus4
Who gave this Bible to my Momma, Who read it to me
 
CHORUS
          C            C/B
There are three wooden crosses
       Am                Am7/G
on the right side of the highway
F                            C               G
why there's not four of them, now I guess we know
C                 C/B
It's not what you take,
         Am                Am7/G
when you leave this world behind you,

Written In Stone

Written In Stone Guitar Chords & Lyrics
VERSE
D
I'm gonna take you down to the riverside where the water runs slow and wide
G
There's a big ole rock out in the middle and I took my hammer and chisel
D
And worked all night so you could see just how much you mean to me
G
I carved your name right next to mine and it'll be there til the end of time
A              G                  A
And my love'll last at least than long
 
                G
It's written in stone how I fell for you
                D
It's written in stone what I wanna do
         C                                 D
Spend my life and the life hereafter lovin you
                 G
And darlin if we live to be a hundred
               D
or if we don't make it half that long
              C                                      D
I want you to know what I fell for you is written in stone
 
G
There's a place on the edge of town when I was a kid I found
G
Two names on a stone together lyin side by side forever
D
and it was then and there I knew if I ever thought a love was true
G
I'd surely wanna write it down on something that would be around
A                   G                   A
When all the spoken words have come and gone
 
                G
It's written in stone how I fell for you
                D
It's written in stone what I wanna do
         C                                 D
Spend my life and the life hereafter lovin you
                 G
And darlin if we live to be a hundred
               D
or if we don't make it half that long
              C                                      D
I want you to know what I fell for you is written in stone
 
A                      G                                 A
And when this love has come and gone our love will still be
 
                G
It's written in stone how I fell for you
                D
It's written in stone what I wanna do
         C                                 D
Spend my life and the life hereafter lovin you
                 G
And darlin if we live to be a hundred

or if we don't make it half that long

I Told You So Guitar Chords & Lyrics
Capo: 2nd fret

VERSE
 
   G
Suppose I called you up tonight,
    Bm
And told you that I loved you,
    C                 D               G
And suppose I said "I wanna come back home."
    C                                   G       D/F#         Em  Bm
And suppose I cried and said "I think I finally learned my lesson
    A7                                 D
And I'm tired of spending all my time alone.
 
     G                               Bm
If I told you that I realized you're all I ever wanted
         C             D         G
And it's killing me to be so far away.
          C                                 G        D/F#   Em     Bm
Would you tell me that you loved me too and would we cry together?
   A7                                D
Or would you simply laugh at me and say:
 
 
CHORUS
 
   G                 Bm       C
"I told you so, oh I told you so.
  Am                                       D
I told you someday you would come crawling back 
                           G      D
and asking me to take you in
 
  G                    Bm     C
I told you so, but you had to go,
      Am                              D                           G
Now I found somebody new and you will never break my heart in two again."
 
 
VERSE
 
     G
If I got down on my knees 
            Bm
And told you I was yours forever 
          C                  D              G
Would you get down on yours too and take my hand ?
         C
Would we get that old-time feeling 
         G         D/F#     Em    Bm
Would we laugh and talk for hours 
    A7                                D
The way we did when our love first began 
          G
Would you tell me that you've missed me too 
    Bm
And that you've been so lonely 
          C                  D              G
And you've waited for the day that I returned 
         C
And we'd live and love forever 
         G         D/F#     Em Bm
And that I'm your one and only 
    A7                                D
Or would you say the tables finally turned 
 
And would you say
 
 
CHORUS
 
   G                 Bm       C
"I told you so, oh I told you so.
  Am                                       D
I told you someday you would come crawling back

I remember how it used to feel
F               G
Riding down old two mile hill
C
Tennis shoes up on the handle bars

Paying no mind to the passing cars

No doubts, no fears, just like when you are here

No chains, no strings, no fences, no wall

No net, just you to catch me when I fall

Look heart, no hands.

It took a little time to get up to speed
F                         G
To find the confidence and strength I need

To just let go and reach for the sky
F                       G
You know sometimes it felt I could fly.
   Em         Am              F   Am        G
No doubts, no fears, just like when you are here.

BRIDGE
 
F                            G                 C
It doesn't take much, just a smile or a touch

And I'm a kid again, I can almost feel that wind

     D                 Em         G                 A
So I have to sing this song about all the things I knew
 
 
CHORUS
            D                 G      D               G
My love is deeper than the holler, stronger than the rivers
Bm               G                  Em           A
Higher than the pine trees growin' tall upon the hill
           D              G               D       A    Bm
My love is purer than the snowflakes that fall in late December
     Em         D             G
And honest as a robin on a springtime window sill
    Em               A               D
And longer than the song of the Whippoorwill
 
 
VERSE 2
D                         G                     D             G
From the backroads to the broadway shows with a million miles between
D                         G               D              G
There's a least a million love songs that people love to sing
    Em                        Bm
And everyone is different and everyone's the same
   G            D              Em              A
so this is just another way of sayin the same thing
 
 
CHORUS
            D                 G      D               G
My love is deeper than the holler, stronger than the rivers
Bm               G                  Em           A
Higher than the pine trees growin? tall upon the hill
           D              G               D       A    Bm
My love is purer than the snowflakes that fall in late December
     Em         D             G
And honest as a robin on a springtime window sill
    Em               A               D
And longer than the song of the Whippoorwill
