The Secret
Written by Scooter Carusoe & David Nail
Recorded by David Nail

(Capo on 1)

Intro.:  |(C)(F/C)| x 4

(C)All gathered 'round in our Sunday best after the service on them old church steps
(F)Congregation spilling into the streets |(C)(F)|
(C) Ain't it funny how the preacher's words disappear out here on the curb
Once the (F)weight of an old friend's body and your hands (C)meet

(Am) Tending bar up in Syracuse, (G) momma called when she got the news
Hell, (C)I don't know who she'll miss more, you or me (F)
No, it (C)didn't feel real, no not 'til now behind this (G)long black Lincoln in our little town
(F)Rolling by buildings I (G)never thought again I'd (C)see

(Chorus)
And I can't (F)help but (G)think about (C)all that we could have (Am)been
Had (F)you not (G)stayed here and (C)settled for a life with (Am)him
(F) Ashes to (G)ashes, dust to dust (Am)
(F) Buried is the (G)secret that was (C)us |(C) |

(C) I can still see you standing there, swollen eyes and snow in your hair
And your (F)shaking voice say you (G)couldn't get past the shame (C)
Eight weeks into a nine month ride, either way it's still a lie
(F)Carrying your child (G) with another man's (C)name

(Chorus)
And I can't (F)help but (G)think about (C)all that we could have (Am)been
Had (F)you not (G)stayed here and (C)settled for a life with (Am)him
(F) Ashes to (G)ashes, dust to dust (Am)
(F) Buried is the (G)secret that was (F)us

Solo:  / / / |(Am) |(F) |(G) |

(Am) I walk up and shake his hand, (G) tell him just how sorry I am
And (C)what I wouldn't give to have you back (F)
(C) I wonder if you're looking down on (G) all who is gathered 'round
(F)Knowing one day (G)I too will find (C)peace

(Chorus)
And I can't (F)help but (G)think about (C)all that we could have (Am)been
Had (F)you not (G)stayed here and (C)settled for a life with (Am)him
(F) Ashes to (G)ashes, dust to dust (Am)
(F) Buried is the (G)secret that was (Am)us
