How To Play

INTRO
| Gadd9  | Csus2  | 2x
 
 
VERSE 1
         G            Csus2
She was doing 60 in a 35
                                Gadd9
I hit the lights and pulled her over
                                   Csus2
When I reached the window of the driver side
                                  G
There was blood from her mouth, dry on her shoulder
            Gadd9                 Csus2
I've never had much patience for guys that hit
                   G
For more than just obvious reasons
  Gadd9                      Csus2
I asked if she wanted me to take him in
                             G
She laughed it off like lemonade
 
 
CHORUS
  Em7                                    Gadd9            D/F#
When you're in love, you can be blinded by your own heart
        Em7                                          Am7
You'll bend your own truth, so twisted up you could justify sin
          Csus2              Dsus2                Em7
And when people in love are desperate enough to abandon their dreams
           Csus2   Dsus2   Gadd9     Csus2
People do despe---rate   things
 
 
VERSE 2
           G                  Csus2
I've been taking lunch breaks at her work
                                G
When the restaurant ain't too crowded
                                Csus2
She knows me and my wife got a little girl
                             Gadd9
We don't talk too much about it
                            Csus2
The other night she met me way out west
                                      Gadd9
Things went further than they should have
                               Csus2
But when she undid the buttons of her dress
                          G
I didn't stop her, but I could have
 
 
CHORUS
  Em7                                    Gadd9            D/F#
When you're in love, you can be blinded by your own heart
        Em7                                          Am9
You'll bend your own truth, so twisted up you could justify sin
          Csus2              Dsus2                Em7
And when people in love are desperate enough to abandon their dreams
           Csus2   Dsus2   Gadd9     Csus2
People do despe---rate   things
 
 
VERSE 3
    G                       Csus2
I know where he drinks most every night
                      G
It's our local hero sports bar
                          Csus2
I've got him cuffed and sweating cold
                      G
In the back of my patrol car
                                Csus2
You forget how dark the canyon gets
                       G
It's a real uneasy feeling
                                     Csus2
I've never had much patience for guys who hit
                      G
For more than just obvious reasons
 
 
CHORUS
  Em7                                    Gadd9            D/F#
When you're in love, you can be blinded by your own heart
        Em7                                          Am7
You'll bend your own truth, so twisted up you could justify sin
          Csus2              Dsus2                Em7
And when people in love are desperate enough to abandon their dreams
           Csus2   Dsus2   Gadd9     Csus2
People do despe---rate   things
 
 
[Ending]
