Intro -x4-: Bb  Eb

Bb                     Eb
I ain't the kind you take home to Mama
 Bb                  Eb
I ain't the kind to wear no ring
   Bb         Eb
Somehow I always get stronger
  Bb              Eb
When I'm on my second drink


Interlude -x2-: Bb  Eb


  Bb               Eb
Even though I hate to admit it
 Bb               Eb
Sometimes I smoke cigarettes
Bb                       Eb
The Christian folk say I should quit it
Bb                   Eb
I just smile and say, 'God bless'


Interlude: Bb


Chorus:
      F
Cause I heard Jesus, He drank wine
      Eb             Bb
And I bet we'd get along just fine
          F
He could calm a storm and heal the blind
       Eb                               Bb
And I bet He'd understand a heart like mine


Interlude -x2-: Bb  Eb


 Bb                   Eb
Daddy cried when he saw my tattoo
 Bb                Eb
Said he loved me anyway
     Bb               Eb
My brother got the brains of the family
Bb                 Eb
So I thought I'd learn to sing


Interlude: Bb


Chorus:
      F
Cause I heard Jesus, He drank wine
      Eb             Bb
And I bet we'd get along just fine
          F
He could calm a storm and heal the blind
       Eb                               Bb
And I bet He'd understand a heart like mine


Interlude -x4-: Bb  Eb


Bridge:
              Cm7    Bb  
Well, I'll flyyyy, awaay 
        Cm7           Bb
From it all.....  one day
          Cm7            F
And I'll flyyy........ away, 


       Bb                    Eb
But these are the days that I will remember
 Bb                    Eb
When my name's called on the roll
 Bb                      Eb
He'll meet me with two long-stemmed glasses
 Bb                   Eb
And make a toast to me coming home


Interlude: Bb


Chorus:
      F
Cause I heard Jesus, He drank wine
      Eb             Bb
And I bet we'd get along just fine
          F
He could calm a storm and heal the blind
       Eb                               Bb
And I bet He'd understand a heart like mine

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
