Cody Jinks - Adobe Sessions
David
Capo 2


Intro
D  A   E   F#m    E   

D  A   E

Verse

          Bm
My friend David was a good kid
   A                    E
He had my back I always knew he did
                         Bm         D           A            
And he was different than most, and maybe I was too
        Bm                             D
And hanging out with the in crowd just wasn't our thing
            A                            E
There was a whole lot more than we could see on these plains
     Bm                           D               A
Well some people just seem to get stuck, and hang around
     Bm                          D
It's college or trade school for those with the means
                   A                         E
There's never been any small town dreams for those in between 
              Bm                       D          A
Yeah the poor folks they go to work or they go to war
      Bm               D
I did fifteen hundreds days in the corps 
                      A          E
and I got back nothin looked the same anymore
      Bm                   D                     A
I got on with the local police, it just seemed to fit

            Bm
Things have changed

Break 

D    A    E    F#m  E   D    A    E

Verse

        Bm               D
By then David had a daughter and a son 
      A                           E
and a wrap sheet to prove all the time that he'd done
        Bm                         D                A
He was just a burned out beat down shell, of my old friend
         Bm                     D                       
And on a three day binge he was speeding through town,
          A                      E
and I bumped the wailers just to try and slow him down
Bm                             D           A
He didn't know that it was me, and he took off


              Bm
Oh how things change

Chorus 

                D                       A
And I found his truck in the floodplain upside down
         E                       F#m           E
It was a hell of a rain I don't know if he  drowned,
         D                  A                      E
or if he died on impact, he must have rolled three times
         D                  A
Yeah the only thing to make matters worse
            E                   F#m   E
is that his mama's a late night ER    nurse 
           D        A                   E
And he was DOA. She just about lost her mind

Break 

D    A    E    F#m  E   D    A    E

Verse

             Bm             D
David's wife drops by every once in a while,
              A                 Bm
the childhood stories always make her smile,
                      D        A
but somehow we always go back to that day

Chorus 

                 D                       A
When I found his truck in the floodplain upside down
         E                       F#m              E
It was a hell of a rain I don't know if he  drowned,
         D                  A                      E
or if he died on impact, he must have rolled three times
         D                  A
Yeah the only thing to make matters worse
            E                   F#m   E
is that his mama's a late night ER    nurse 
           D        A                   E
And he was DOA. She just about lost her mind
