When All Got Is A Hammer.
Grethchen Peters.
Album: Blackbirds.

Intro: E Am 

Am                                      C
Thereís a bible on the table, thereís a bottle on the shelf,
          F            Am              E7
Thereís a woman in the kitchen, cryiní quietly to herself,
         Am                              C                 G/B
Down the hallway, in the bedroom, he can hear his children wail,
     F                Am      E                       Am
When all you got is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

        Am                                C
Well he came home from the desert, with a medal on his chest,
       F            Am                               E7
Like a hero, like a champion but he felt more like a guest,
       Am                           C                     G/B
Now he sleeps with one eye open and he wakes up scared as hell,
    F                 Am          E                       Am
And all heís got is a hammer, and everything looks like a nail.

          
(Chorus) 	  	   
 	  	   C                              G
Well they show you how to shoot and they show you how to kill,
               Dm                            E
But they donít show you what to do with this hole that you canít fill,
       Am                                      C                         G/B
So you dwell in the darkness of your soul like Jonah in the belly of the whale,
    F                Am         E                       Am
And all you got is a hammer and everything looks like a nail.

Break: A C F Am E Am C F Am E Am Am7

       Am                            C  
When a good man in a bad dream canít make it on his own,
        F                       Am              E7
When he canít feed his own damn children on the money that he brings home,
        Am                                  C                   G/B
And the deck is stacked against him, and he knows heís bound to fail,
    F                 Am      E                       Am
And all heís got is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.


(Chorus) 	  	   
 	  	   C                              G
Well they show you how to shoot and they show you how to kill,
               Dm                            E
But they donít show you what to do with this hole that you canít fill,
       Am                                      C
So you dwell in the darkness of your soul like Jonah in the belly of the whale,
    F                Am         E                       Am7
And all you got is a hammer and everything looks like a nail,
Am                                E                       Am   Am7 Am A
Yeah, all you got is a hammer and everything looks like a nail.
