Intro -x4-: Eb  Ab

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


Interlude -x2-: Eb  Ab


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


Interlude: Eb


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


Interlude -x2-: Eb  Ab


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


Interlude: Eb


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


Interlude -x4-: Eb  Ab


Bridge:
              Fm7    Eb  
Well, I'll flyyyy, awaay 
        Fm7           Eb
From it all.....  one day
          Fm7            Bb
And I'll flyyy........ away, 


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


Interlude: Eb


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