    G                    D                     A7sus4 (2)

        I don't see you through the windshield

    G                    D               A7sus4 (2)

        I don't see you in faces looking back at me

           G               D                     A7sus4 (2)

    The bible is a bottle and the hardwood floor is home

                G                    D                 A7sus4 (2)

    When morning comes twice a day or not at all

            G          D               A7sus4          D

    If I break in two, will you put me back together?

    Be around

                      F#m                 G   Em7 (2)

    To say you've just been there

                      Bm (2)

    Walking the line

               G (4)

    upside down

     

    G                   D                     A7sus4 (2)

        Walk and breathed many a cancerous mile

                    G                 D                 A7sus4 (2)

    When the bat of an eye is too slow to beat the coffin

              G             D        A7sus4 (2)

    They won't tell it on the TV

             G             D         A7sus4 (2)

    They can't say it on the radio

                        G                   D          A7sus4 (2)

    they pay to move it off the shelf and into our minds

                G                  D                  A7sus4                  D (2)

    Till you can't tell the truth when it's right in front of your eyes
