remember keys
                               A
You draw it out like a highway  
 
With every word that you say
   G                           D
Excuses for the answers that you lack
                                         A
Your mama’s still the steady ground you walk on
 
every day 
           G                  A            D
And your daddy’s still the monkey on your back
 A                                          G
Did you find all you thought you’d find out in the wild, 
wild west 
     Em                                   A
You took a little piece of home and you threw away the rest

Chorus:
     D                                    A                              
You say you’re livin’ on the edge and I think you’re hangin’ from a ledge      
      G                           D        A
Too scared to hold the hand that wants to help you up
     D                                       A
Are you the man you thought you’d be by the time that you turned 33
          G                      D      A
Are you still a bullet in your daddy’s gun
        G                      D          A
Don’t forget boy you’re your mama’s only son
 Em                D                 A
She’s at home and she’s been prayin for ya
    G            D
So what about Georgia A G A  


 D
Saw your sister yesterday
  A
Austin’s five and on his way
  G                                 D
Looking for some shoes that he can fill
                                          A
He said that he’d be just like you, the coolest guy he ever knew 
           G               A                  D
And he’d find you when he lost his training wheels
A                                 G 
I looked in his big blue eyes and I saw you again
      Em                             A
He’s hungry for a life that he aint ready to begin

Chorus:
     D                                    A                              
You say you’re livin’ on the edge and I think you’re hangin’ from a ledge      
      G                           D        A
Too scared to hold the hand that wants to help you up
     D                                       A
Are you the man you thought you’d be by the time that you turned 33
          G                      D      A
Are you still a bullet in your daddy’s gun
        G                      D          A
Don’t forget boy you’re your mama’s only son
 Em                D                 A
She’s at home and she’s been prayin for ya
    G            D
So what about Georgia A G A 

Bridge:
  A                            G
Guess you didn’t realize it’d take you quite this long
     Em                            A
To figure out that being free is right where you belong

Chorus:
     D                                    A                              
You say you’re livin’ on the edge and I think you’re hangin’ from a ledge      
      G                           D        A
Too scared to hold the hand that wants to help you up
     D                                       A
Are you the man you thought you’d be by the time that you turned 33
          G                      D      A
Are you still a bullet in your daddy’s gun
        G                      D          A
Don’t forget boy you’re your mama’s only son
 Em                D                 A
She’s at home and she’s been prayin for ya
