Just to Prove I Could
Pinson/Collins
Album: Songs for Somebody


CAPO I


INTRO: G  C  G

G
Started a war when I quit school
Em
Broke my mama's heart and my daddy's rule
C
I was as wrong as my new tattoo
    G                       D
But some folks are cool and some folks ain't
G
I hit the road, had it all figured out
Em
Hitched a ride on a semi south-bound
C
I thought I'd just float around
        G                    D
But you can't float far on a hundred and some change
C           G                  C
I damn sure left that town for good
(D)             G
Just to prove I could


Got me a job, didn't pay very much
But saved enough for an old fixer-upper
Motor was strong and she had good rubber
On second-hand tires all the way around
Bucket of rust, it looked like hell
It was the butt of jokes my buddies would tell
'Til the day Jenny Thompson fell 
For me and that rumblin' muffler sound
Drove a poor boy's truck thru a rich girl's neighborhood
Just to prove I could


CHORUS:
G
Hell bent on a hell-bound road
D
I went further than she wanted to go
     Em                                    
Kept hittin' the gas, she was hittin' the breaks
C                          D
I took some innocence that wasn't mine to take
G
Wasn't one for goin' slow
D
God I wish she'd have told me no
       Em                 D                C
Lost a life of love for a night of feelin' good
                G
Just to prove I could


Can't put my finger on 
The day the whiskey stopped goin' down wrong
I was as weak as it was strong
And I crawled up inside that glass
I had a friend tried to pull me out
Lord knows where he is now
He told me I oughta put it down
And I told him he oughta kiss my ass
I dropped him right there where he stood
Just to prove I could


CHORUS:
Hell bent on a hell-bound road
My whole life spinnin' out of control
It wasn't his business anyway
I was too drunk to fight and way too gone to stay
Wasn't one for backin' down
Lord I wished he'd stood his ground
Looked past a friend lookin' out for my own good
Just to prove I could


SOLO: G  D  Em  D  C

G
You can only go on so long
Em
Losin' yourself before you're gone
            C
And there's no one left to tell you you're wrong
         G            D
And it's up to you to get it right
C                  G            C
There's those that said I never would
                      G             C
But I finally started livin' like I should
N/C
Just to prove I could


OUTRO: G  C  G
