Capo: 4th fret

INTRO
| G | G | Em | Em | Bm | Bm | C | C
 
VERSE 1
       G               Bm
It' so easy to get all caught up
       C                        D
In the fast pace of this modern age
          G                      Bm
Makes you wonder if we’re making progress
        C                           D    D
Or just losing who we are along the way
 
CHORUS
  Fill 1

B|--------
G|-----2--
D|---0----
A|-2------
E|--------
 
Em
I've been trying to figure out
       Bm
How to dial it back and slow it down
      C           D           G      (Fill 1)
Can't be as complicated as it seems
    Em
The heart of me loves yesterday
   Bm
So pardon me now while I make
C           D             G
My way back to the simple things
 
SOLO
| G | G | Em | Em | Bm | Bm | C | C
 
VERSE 2
       G                 Bm
If you call me I may not answer
          C                           D
Might not get back to you for quite a while
        G               Bm
I'll be fishin' with my family
      C                             D     (Fill 1)
Cause livin' in the moments more my style
 
CHORUS
Em
I've been trying to figure out
       Bm
How to dial it back and slow it down
      C           D           G      (Fill 1)
Can't be as complicated as it seems
    Em
The heart of me loves yesterday
   Bm
So pardon me now while I make
C           D             G
My way back to the simple things
 
SOLO
| G | Em | Em | Bm | Bm |
 
| C | D G |
 
BRIDGE
C             Bm      Am      G   G
  Tonight I'm turnin' off the TV
D                           G       G
  Watch the stars out for a change
C            Bm          Am      G
  Sit on the front porch with my baby
D               Em   Em  C  (Fill 1)
Rockin' all the way
 
CHORUS
      Em
Maybe that'll help me figure out
       Bm
How to dial it back and slow it down
      C           D           G     (Fill 1)
Can't be as complicated as it seems
    Em
The heart of me loves yesterday
   Bm
So pardon me now while I make
C           D             G
My way back to the simple things
