Verse 1:
B
Well I stumbled in the darkness

I'm lost and alone

Though I said I'd go before us

And show the way back home
Abm	E	  B
There a light up ahead
B		     E	  
I can't hold on very long

Forgive me pretty baby but I always take the long way home

Verse 2:
B
Money's just something you throw

Off the back of a train

Got a head full of lightning

a hat full of rain
Abm    E	  B
And I know that I said

I'd never do it again

I put food on the table
