Verse:
     A                      E
 I broke free on a Saturday morning
           D            A
 I put the pedal to the floor
     A                  E
 Headed north on Mills Avenue
              D             A
 And listened to the engine roar
 
Interlude:
   A    Dbm   Dadd9    A
   A    E     D        A
 
Verse:
    A                          E
 My broken house behind me and good things ahead
              D                          A
 A girl named Cathy wants a little of my time
     A                        E
 Six cylinders underneath the hood crashing and kicking
 D                         A
 Ahah, listen to the engine whine
 
Chorus:
               A                    E
 I am going to make it through this year
       D           A
 If it kills me
               A                    E
 I am going to make it through this year
       D           A
 If it kills me

   A    E     D        A
 
Verse:
          A                E
 I played video games in a drunken haze
       D        A
 I was 17 years young
         A                       E
 Hurt my knuckles punching the machines
              D                 A
 The taste of scotch rich on my tongue
 
Interlude:
   A    Dbm   Dadd9    A
   A    E     D        A
 
Verse:
          A                      E
 And then Cathy showed up and we hung out
         D                        A
 Trading swigs from a bottle, all bitter and clean
         A             E
 Locking eyes, holding hands
           D             A
 Twin high maintenance machines
 
Chorus:
               A                    E
 I am going to make it through this year
       D             A
 If it kills me
               A                    E
 I am going to make it through this year
       D             A
 If it kills me

Gbm                             A
 I drove home in the California dusk
Gbm                         A
 I could feel the alcohol inside of me hum
              Gbm                     A
 Pictured the look on my stepfather's face
 D                           E
 Ready for the bad things to come
 
Verse:
        A                            E
 I down-shifted as I pulled into the driveway
     D                             A
 The motor screaming out, stuck in second gear
                A                     E
 The scene ends badly, as you might imagine
      D                      A
 In a cavalcade of anger and fear
               A            Dbm         D              E
 There will be feasting and dancing in Jerusalem next year
 
Chorus:
               A                    E
 I am going to make it through this year
       D            A
 If it kills me
               A                    E
 I am going to make it through this year
       D            A
 If it kills me
