                An Introduction: Sorry in advance. It's my first tab that I've submitted here, and I 
most of my songs by ear. I also was outraged that they didn't already have this song on 
Guitar, since it's one of Jennings' best, in my opinion.

Basically, this song is a bunch of simple bar chords (the same ones over again), and 
I don't know the names of most of them, I'll just show them in tab form:

Chord 1: (4th fret bar)
e: [---I---I---I-X-I---I---I]
B: [---I---I---I---I---I-X-I]
G: [---I---I---I---I---I-X-I]
D: [---I---I---I---I---I-X-I]
A: [---I---I---I-X-I---I---I]
E: [---I---I---I---I---I---I]

Chord 2: (4th fret bar)
e: [---I---I---I-X-I---I---I]
B: [---I---I---I-X-I---I---I]
G: [---I---I---I---I-X-I---I]
D: [---I---I---I---I---I-X-I]
A: [---I---I---I---I---I-X-I]
E: [---I---I---I-X-I---I---I]

Chord 3: (2nd fret bar)
e: [---I-X-I---I---I---I---I]
B: [---I-X-I---I---I---I---I]
G: [---I---I-X-I---I---I---I]
D: [---I---I---I-X-I---I---I]
A: [---I---I---I-X-I---I---I]
E: [---I-X-I---I---I---I---I]

Chord 4: (6th fret bar)
e: [---I---I---I---I---I-X-I---I---I]
B: [---I---I---I---I---I-X-I---I---I]
G: [---I---I---I---I---I-X-I---I---I]
D: [---I---I---I---I---I---I---I-X-I]
A: [---I---I---I---I---I---I---I-X-I]
E: [---I---I---I---I---I-X-I---I---I]

And to make it easier on both of us, the numbered chords are shown with the lyrics:

(#1)
Got so lost that I went to church
(#2)
Sorry God but you made it worse
(#1)        (#3)
Made me sit beind a fence
(#1)        (#3)
Haunted by the evidence

(#1)
I guess you don’t want me to think
(#2)
So instead I’ll dream and drink
(#1)        (#3)
Got too drunk to drive home
(#1)        (#3)
In the cab I grabbed my phone

(#1)
And made a call I might regret
(#2)
To a girl that I just met
(#1)        (#3)
Lately things are not okay
(#1)        (#3)
I just wanted to hear somebody say

(#1)                 (#2)
If you need a reason as to why you’re here
(#4)                                (#3)
You don’t need to look farther than me
(#1)                 (#2)
If you need a reason as to why you’re here
(#4)                                (#3)
You don’t need to look farther than me

(#1)
Lovely, lovely quiet lake
(#2)
How could this be a mistake
(#1)         (#3)
Too dark now to see your face
(#1)                     (#3)
Your hair is blowing all over the place

(#1)
The moon is caught in a frozen glass
(#2)
I could not let this moment pass
(#1)           (#3)
The sun is waiting far away
(#1)          (#3)
Until i’ve had a chance to say

(#1)
All that’s missing, all that’s lost
(#2)
Every hope at any cost
(#1)             (#3)
Every dream too good to come true
(#1)            (#3)
Floods my heart when I’m with you

(#1)                 (#2)
If you need a reason as to why you’re here
(#4)                                (#3)
You don’t need to look farther than me
(#1)                 (#2)
If you need a reason as to why you’re here

(#4)                                (#3)

I hope I helped. Sorry again about the shabby "tabbed" chords. But again, I learn by ear 
have no idea what most bar chords are.

Cheers!
