[Intro]
D G (x4)
 
[Verse 1]
         D                        G
Couldn't wait to ride out of that one horse town
       D          G
Didn't see no use in sticking around
      D                 G               A
I was green and busting at the seams to leave
      D             G
I was sitting on G, waiting on O
          D             G
The day I hit eighteen, I hit the road
            D                     G              A
Traded that county maintain for a four lane city street
 
[Pre-Chorus]
              Em                    D                   G
But sometimes things ain't what you think they're gonna be
Em                  D               G
What you want ain't always what you need
 
[Chorus]
                    D
Don't know what you got 'til it's gone
           A
And you're out on your own
        G                      A
All you want is what you can't get back
                D                 A
Once you let it go, then you know what you have
             G              A
Don't hold a candle to what you had
Bm                 A
Sometimes what you think you'll find
G                   D                Em
It ain't quite what real life has in store
A                               D G D G
So be careful what you wish for
 
[Verse 2]
        D          G
She was holding on just a little too tight
         D               G
Talked a little too much about the rest of our lives
  D               G                          A
I broke her heart thinking freedom would set me free
               Em                    D                   G
Well sometimes things ain't what you think they're gonna be
 
[Chorus]
                    D
Don't know what you got 'til it's gone
           A
And you're out on your own
        G                      A
All you want is what you can't get back
                D                 A
Once you let it go, then you know what you have
             G              A
Don't hold a candle to what you had
Bm                 A
Sometimes what you think you'll find
G                   D                Em
It ain't quite what real life has in store
A                               D
So be careful what you wish for
 
[Bridge]
             Em                                     D
'Cause these city lights can't shine quite like the stars
       G                          A
I wish I could wish her back into my arms
 
[Chorus]
                    D
Don't know what you got 'til it's gone
           A
And you're out on your own
        G                      A
All you want is what you can't get back
                D                 A
Once you let it go, then you know what you have
             G              A
Don't hold a candle to what you had
Bm                 A
Sometimes what you think you'll find
G                   D                Em
It ain't quite what real life has in store
Em                            A
And you can't get her back no more
A                              D G D
So be careful what you wish for
G               D        G  D
Be careful what you wish for
