Intro -x4-: Db  Gb

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


Interlude -x2-: Db  Gb


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


Interlude: Db


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


Interlude -x2-: Db  Gb


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


Interlude: Db


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


Interlude -x4-: Db  Gb


Bridge:
              Ebm7    Db  
Well, I'll flyyyy, awaay 
        Ebm7           Db
From it all.....  one day
          Ebm7            Ab
And I'll flyyy........ away, 


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


Interlude: Db


Chorus:
      Ab
Cause I heard Jesus, He drank wine
      Gb             Db
And I bet we'd get along just fine
          Ab
He could calm a storm and heal the blind
       Gb                               Db
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.
