Verse:
Bbm       Ab                  Db              Gb
I know I took the path that you would never want for me
Bbm       Ab                   Db
I know I let you down, didn't I?
Bbm       Ab                     Db              Gb
So many sleepless nights where you were waiting up on me
Bbm              Ab               Db
Well I'm just a slave unto the night

Bbm                  Ab                  Db                 Gb
Now remember when I told you that's the last you'll see of me
Bbm               Ab                 Db
Remember when I broke you down to tears
Bbm       Ab                  Db             Gb
I know I took the path that you would never want for me

I gave you hell through all the years

Bbm         Ab                    Db          Gb
I've been around the world but never in my wildest dreams
Bbm              Ab             Db
Would I come running home to you
Bbm            Ab               Db             Gb
I've told a million lies but now I tell a single truth
Bbm              Ab           Db
There's you in everything I do

Pre-Chorus:
Bbm                  Ab                  Db                 Gb
Now remember when I told you that's the last you'll see of me
Bbm               Ab                 Db
Remember when I broke you down to tears
Bbm       Ab                  Db             Gb
I know I took the path that you would never want for me
Bbm         Ab                    Db
I gave you hell through all the years

Ebm                      Ab 
Don't tell me that I'm wrong 
                       Bbm         Ab               Db
I've walked that road before and left you on your own
    Ebm                            Ab
And please believe them when they say
                          Bbm          Ab                 Db
That it's left for yesterday and the records that I've played
       Ebm          Ab        Db
Please forgive for all I've done

Chorus:
   Db    Gb      Db        Gb      Db      Gb       Db      Ab
So I, I bet my life, I bet my life, I bet my life on you
Db     Gb      Db       Gb      Db      Gb       Db      Ab
I, I bet my life, I bet my life, I bet my life on you
