Intro:
Cadd9             G            Cadd9              G
 
Verse 1:
Cadd9               G            Cadd9             G
Well I work for the city, in the town where I grew up
Cadd9               G      G/F#  Em                  Cadd9
Some days I run the backhoe, and some days I run the dump
Cadd9          G           Cadd9      G
If I had other plans on my graduation day
Cadd9              G      G/F#    Em            Cadd9
Then several years ago, I guess I hauled''em all away
                      G        
Yeah I hauled ''em all away

Verse 2:
She told me she was pregnant, on the day I turned 18
And I did what you''re supposed to do, I bought her a ring
He didn''t have to ask us but he asked us anyway
And we stood up and said I do What else were we gonna say 
What else were we gonna say

Chorus:
D
Well I''m thankful for the things I have
    Em 	              Cadd9
And all the things I don''t 
D
I got dreams that will come true
    Em              Cadd9
And I got some that won''t
D
Most the time I just walk the line
Em          Cadd9
Wherever it goes 
G               Cadd9
Cause you can''t hang yourself 
                              G    Cadd9     G
If you ain''t got enough rope
          
Verse 3:
My boss man is the mayor, I do just what he asks
I mow the courthouse lawn, watch the prisoners walking past
I''m happy to be working, instead of wearing chains
Like my cousin Willie, he''s locked up in La Grange
He''s locked up in La Grange.

Repeat Chorus

Verse 4:
There''s a tavern down the highway, I go to drink some beers
And wash down all I''m missing by hanging around here
Then I drive back to the trailer I make up with my wife
I kiss my sleeping children and I get on with my life        
Yeah I get on with my life

Cadd9    G    Cadd9    G

I'm thinking that in the chorus, the Em should be an Am... That's how I'm hearing it, not sure if I'm right...
