Was It 26
By Chris Stapleton
Written By Don Sampson
CD: Traveller (2015)
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

Drop D Tuning

D                               C
Livin' hard was easy when I was young and bullet-proof
  G                                             D
I had no chains to bind me, just a guitar and a roof
D                           C
Emptied every bottle when I poured I never missed
  G                                                     D 
I had blood shot eyes at twenty-five or was it twenty-six

D                          C
Didn't seem to matter what price I had to pay
      G                                       D
Cause anything worth havin', I'd just lose anyway
D                                C 
Friends worried about me, they'd asked if I was sick
        G                                                D
Thought I wouldn't die at twenty-five or was it twenty-six

      G                           D
Those two years run together like whiskey over ice
A                         G               D   
Melted into memories like somebody else's life
    G                                    D       D/F#     G 
I'm glad to say, I've come around but if I could have one wish
          D             C           G                   D
I'd like another try at twenty-five or was it twenty-six

Met a girl from Georgia, smart and pretty, college grad
I thought my luck was changin' but then it all went bad
I guess I fell in love with her, all it took was just one kiss
But then she said goodbye at twenty-five or was it twenty-six


I've been down that road before almost as far as hell
Deception or redemption, I guess only time will tell
I have faith and the knowledge that God gave us a gift
I couldn't hide at twenty-five or was it twenty-six
