Ships That Don’t Come In
By Joe Diffie 


G    320003
F    133211
C    X32010
A7   X02010


G
I COULD TELL HE HAD A TOUGH LIFE, 
           F
BY THE WAY HE SAT AND STARED
C
AND ME, I’D COME TO PUSH AND SHOVE, 
     G
SO I PULLED UP I CHAIR

G
WE TALKED OF ROADS UNTRAVELED, 
   G
WE TALKED OF LOVE UNTRUE
   C
OF STRINGS THAT COME UNRAVELED, 
              G
WE WERE KINGS OF KINDRED FOOLS

    A7 
AND JUST WHEN I HIT BOTTOM, 
     D
THAT OLD MAN RAISES HIS GLASS.
                  A7
AND SAID AT LEAST WE’VE HAD OUR CHANCES,  
       D
THERES THOSE WHO NEVER HAVE


CHORUS
   C                      D            G            D      C
SO HERES TO ALL THE SOLDIERS, WHO HAVE EVER DIED IN VANE
    A7                      D           G
THE INSANE LOCKED UP IN THEMSELVES, THE HOMLESS DOWN ON MAIN
   C                        D           G          D           C
TO THOSE WHO STAND ON EMPTY SHORES, AND SPIT AGAINST THE WIND
    A7                D          C                D
AND THOSE WHO WAIT FOREVER,  FOR SHIPS THAT DON’T COME IN.

G
HE SAID ITS ONLY LIFES ILLUSIONS,
     F
THAT BRING US TO THIS BAR
C
TO PICK UP THESE OLD CRUTCHES,
    G
AND COMPARE EACH OTHERS SCARS


G
CAUSE THE THING WERE CALLING HEARTACHE, 
      F
HELL, THERE HARLDLY WORTH OUR TIME 
     C
WE’D B***H ABOUT A DOLLAR,
     G
WHEN THERES THOSE WITHOUT A DIME

      A7
AS HE ORDERED ONE LAST ROUND HE SAID,
  D
I GUESS WE CAN’T COMPLAIN
         A7
GOD MADE LIFE A GAMBLE
         D  
AND WERE STILL IN THE GAME
