Verse 1
               D                          G         D
She said "it's none of my business but it breaks my heart"
          D/B                     G        D
Dropped a dozen cheap roses in my shopping cart
        D                        G        D
Made it out to the truck without breaking down
D/B                         G      D
Everybody knows you're in a speed trap town
       D                           G           D
It's a Thursday night but there's a high school game
       D/B                             G     D
Sneak a bottle up the bleachers and forget my name
      D                   G      D
These 5'8" bastards run a shallow cross
      D/B                     G          D
It's a boy's last dream and a man's first loss


Chorus 1
       Em           G           D           D/A
And it never did occur to me to leave, 'til tonight
       Em              G          D
There's no one left to ask if I'm all right
Em              G                  D           D/A
Sleep until I'm straight enough to drive, then decide
           Em            G               D
If there's anything that can't be left behind


Verse 2
    D                          G         D
The doctor said daddy wouldn't make it a year
       D/B                     G        D
But the holidays are over and he's still here
    D                             G  D
How long can they keep you in the ICU
D/B                           G       D
Veins through the skin like a faded tattoo
      D                          G      D
Was a tough state trooper from a decade back
          D/B                             G         D
Till that girl who wasn't mama caused his heart attack
          D                         G       D
He didn't care about us when he was walkin' around
     D/B                     G         D
Just pulling women over in a speed trap town


Chorus 2
       Em          G            D             D/A
But it never did occur to me to leave, 'til tonight
       Em             G           D
When I realized he'll never be all right
Em               G               D           D/A
Sign my name and say my last goodbye, then decide
             Em                G               D
That there's nothing here that can't be left behind


[Guitar Solo]


Verse 3
D                         G        D
Roads got blurry when the sun came up
D/B                         G      D
Slept a couple hours in the pickup truck
D                           G       D
Drank a cup of coffee by an Indian mound
D/B                           G         D
Thousand miles away from that speed trap town
D/B                           G         D
Thousand miles away from that speed trap town
