A BETTER PLACE
Artist: Billy Yates
Album: If I Could Go Back
Submitter: Christopher R.
Date: 04/14/04

Capo 1st Fret (To Match Recording)

Intro: (G) (G/F#) (Em7) (C) (G) (Am) (D)

I was (G) drivin' - it was (G/F#) rainin'
On my (Em7) way to bring her (C) roses
When (G) I got there - she (G/B) wasn't there al(D)one
Oh, it (G) tore my world to (G/F#) pieces
To know we'd (Em7) never be to(C)gether
So I (G) said "goodbye" - and headed off (G/B) down the (D) road
(Em7) I couldn't see for the (G) tears and rain
(Em7) Heard the crash and I (G) felt the pain
And (Am) my life was (C/B) over (C) just like (D) that

 	 But, I'm in a (G) better (G/F#) place
 	 No more (Em7) tears on my (C) face
 	 Up here a(Am)bove the coulds - (C) I can see clearly, (G) now (D)
 	 She was my (G) reason for (G/F#) livin'
 	 And after (Em7) all the love I've (C) given
 	 I (Am) never dreamed I'd (C/B) die with this heart(Am)ache
 	 Oh, (C/B) but (C) I'm in a (D) better (G) place

Now she's (G) standing there (G/F#) cryin' 
Like she's (Em7) dying to (C) hold me
(G) Too bad - she (G/B) waited too (D) late
I spent (G) most of my (G/F#) life
Just (Em7) tryin' to make her (C) love me
Can't be(G)lieve what it took to (G/B) finally make her look (D) my way
(Em7) The preacher man sends (G) up a prayer
(Em7) The organ music (G) fills the air
And the (Am) choir sings, as they (C/B) carry (C) me a(D)way

Repeat Chorus 

 	 She was my (G) reason for (G/F#) livin'
 	 And after (Em7) all the love I've (C) given
 	 I (Am) never dreamed I'd (C/B) die with this heart(Am)ache
 	 Oh, (C/B) but (C) I'm in a (D) better (G) place
