The Airborne Toxic Event
(Capo 5)

 
C
 When I was a boy
    F
My daddy told me, 'son
            C       
Don't you ever mess with a certain type 
      G
of girl'
    C                                       
No, I've wished more than twice that I'd 
    F
taken dad's advice
     Am                G               C
I wish it more than anything in this world
      C
He grabbed himself a bottle and he 
   F
looked me in the eye
          C
And he'd take a plug and wipe it from his 
  G
chin
           C
He'd say 'son, don't put much part in 
        F
those matters of the heart'
     Am            G        C
I wished I had listened to him
   
(Chorus)
      F
And tell me oh Jesus!
       C
I'm asking you please
  F
How do I make this endless heartache 
     C
cease?
      F                G            F     Am
Lord, I'd believe in you if you'd believe in 
  C
me too
   F     G            C
I just want a little peace
(Come on now)


C
Us big city boys
          F
We don't think about it much
           C
It's all whiskey, wine, and messing  
             G
around with drugs
             C
All these secrets that we keep
         F
Never knowing where we'll sleep
   Am              G               C
I guess I always thought it was enough
                     C
But I've got this feeling in my heart
       F
These days of wanting more
    C                    G
Something to ease this weary head
        C
So I guess I thought that girl might
  F
redeem me from this world
Am                  G          C
Lord, I should've asked you instead

(Chorus)
     F
And tell me oh Jesus!
     C
I'm down on my knees
  F                                 C
I know that I'm no long suffering priest 
       F         G                 F
But I believe in you and could you believe 
Am     C
in me too
F       G             C
I just want a little peace
   F              G            C
Oh lord, I just need a little peace
