Verse:
Am                       Am     
I kissed the kids at noon and stumbled out the room
C6                      Am     
I caught up a cab, ran up a tab at 7th and Flower
Am                      Am     
Best recital I had to ruin, missed my son's graduation
C6                      Am     
Punched the Nickles boy for taking his seat, he gets all the anger

Bridge:
      Am                               Am     
From me, said things could be much worse, natural disaster
C6                Am     
On the evening news
Am                          Am     
Said things could be much worse, we still got our health
C6                Am              Am   
My paycheck in the mail

Chorus:
                 C                  G
I promised to my wife, and children
F                  C              G
I'd never touch another drink as long as I live
F                  C           G
But even then, it sounds so soothing
F
This will blow over in time
F
This will all blow over in time

Verse:
Am                     Am    
I'm just an honest man, provide for me and mine
C6                  Am                  Am
I give a check to tax detuctible organizations
Am                                         Am     
Two weeks vacation won't heal the damage done
C6              Am     
I need another one

Bridge:
Am                               Am     
Said things could be much worse, natural disaster
C6                Am     
On the evening news
Am                          Am     
Said things could be much worse, we still got our health
C6                Am              Am   
My paycheck in the mail

Chorus:
                  C        G
I promised to my wife and children
F                 C               G
I'd never touch another drink as long as I live
F                   C        G
But even then, it sounds so soothing
F                 C           G
To mix a gin and sink into oblivion
F                 C         G
I promised to my wife and children
F                   C          G
That accident left everyone a little shook up
F                      C       G
But at the meetings I felt so empty
F
This will blow over in time
F
This will all blow over in time
