D                                G
Shelley's at the kitchen table, cup of coffee and the morning paper
D                 Bm            G
He walks in she's so surprised, to see the tears in his eyes
D                                G
He says I love you I'm so sorry, but bigger things are waiting for me
D                     Bm  G  A
And I can't take this anymore...

(chorus)
           D          Bm              G             A
I pay the bills, watch tv, day in day out the same routine
           D              Bm           G       A
I mow the grass, fix the leak just to fix it again
          D           Bm                A               G
We go to church go to work, so picture perfect that it hurts
  D              Bm      A           G         D
I feel like I'm trapped inside this ordinary life.

D                                G
Shelley's at the kitchen table, crayons and construction paper
D            Bm            G 
Hey mom look what I drew, it's a picture of me and you
 D
Then at night when she says their prayers
G
She runs her fingers through his hair
     D          Bm  G  A
So thankful for every day...

(chorus)
                D           Bm             G                 A
They pay their bills, watch tv, day in day out it's all they need
              D              Bm           G      A
They mow the grass, fix the leak just to fix it again
             D            BM        A                     G
They go to church, go to school, everyday it's something new
 D                Bm             A             G        D
Precious are the days as they go by, in their ordinary lives.

Bm                A                G
Phone rings he's calling from the airport
               A              D
It's midnight he's all alone again
 G          D                Bm        A
He'says I can't believe how much I've missed
 G                   A
And what I wouldn't give...

(chorus)
            D           Bm             G             A
To pay the bills, watch tv, day in day out the same routine
            D              Bm           G      A
To mow the grass, fix the leak just to fix it again
          D             Bm         A                   G
To go to church, go to work I can't tell you how this hurts
 D              Bm      A             G        D
I miss my son I miss my wife, and my ordinary life!

Thanks. This song really does help on so many levels.

I've been playing it for years out of my songbook here and just realized I never said thanks!
