Eric Church
What I Almost Was
Submitted by: Ermapoop

Capo 3rd Fret
G C  G  D  (2x)

G                            C     G
It was my senior year, I just turned 18
     Em                             D    G
I was a Friday night hero, with Division 1 dreams
G                             C     G
I had an offer on the table, a four-year ride
       Em                  D   G
'Til that fourth-and-two and 24 dive

D                          C         G
I left on a stretcher, wound up on a crutch
D                              C        G
Walked on that next summer wound up gettin' cut
Em                 D             C           G
I flipped off that coach, left that school in the dust
Am           G/B        C
For making my dreams go a bust
C                      D
And I thank God I ain't
What I almost was


G                         C          G
Well I moved on back home, came awful close
             Em                D   G
To being some son-in-law, to some CEO
G                                         C          G
Coulda been a corner office, country club, suit-and-tie man
Em                     D      G
Answering to no one, but her and him

D                          C     G
I ran out on his money, ran out on her love
D                        C       G
At four in the morning I loaded my truck
Em           D          C        G
I left my hometown in a big cloud of dust
Am           G/B    C
I just had to follow my gut
C                  D
And I thank god I ain't
What I almost was

Am  G/B  C
Am  G/B  C  D

Guitar town I bought this old Epiphone
Started stringin' chords and words into songs
Been puttin' in time on 16th Avenue
Em                       D         G
Pourin' out my heart, for tips on a stool

D                             C               G
I ain't making a killin' but then there's those nights
D                               C            G
When the song comes together and hits home just right
Em                  D            C         G
The crowd's on their feet, cuz they can't get enough
Am            G/B       C
Of this music I make and I love
And I thank God I ain't
I thank God I ain't
Yeah I thank God I ain't
What I almost was
