Intro -x2-: G Am C C7 G

Verse 1
G
Well, a truest test of a man's good name
Am
is Acceptance of failure and losing a game,
C                              C7                   G
with a smile and a handshake , quiet every building rage
G
I got knocked around in a real small town,
Am
and they poked and and they prodded and marched me around,
C                                      C7         G
for a laugh at the snow, try to tear a good man's soul
 
Chorus:
G
For a fool's gold, a beggars bargain
Am
too much time, space to get lost in,
C                                C7         G
its one for the road, two if you can let it go.
G
Blood's thick, but waters deeper,
Am
the wine works fine, but the wiskeys cheaper
C                                C7            G
Now turn it around, quick before your Sun goes down.

Verse 2:
G
Well, I see you found yourself a damn fine game,
Am
you got lines on your mind and ounces to say,
C                    C7                   G
but it's okay, we've both seen our darker days.
G
But it's like you've never saw a sucker before,
Am
been alive on the side of you bed room door,
C                                           C7  G
with an ear on the phone, beggin just to let it go.
 
Chorus -x2-:
G
For a fool's gold, a beggars bargain
Am
too much time, space to get lost in,
C                                C7         G
its one for the road, two if you can let it go.
G
Blood's thick, but waters deeper,
Am
the wine works fine, but the wiskeys cheaper
C                                C7            G
Now turn it around, quick before your Sun goes down.

Outro:
C                           C7                        G     C7 G
I said, now turn it around, quick before the Sun goes down
