Halfway to Hazard
"Got Back Up"

I like to switch to barr chords on the chorus
just to give it a little more of a rock feel.

Intro: Dm  Am  G  Dm  2x

Verse 1:
                   
                   Dm                 Am
Was a smoke filled room was a Friday night
            G                          Dm
Talkin to a sweet thing and havin me a good time
                  Dm                  Am
When through that door Big Jim walked in
                    G                   Dm
He'd been pushin me around since we was kids
             Dm                    Am
I lowered my hat as he came toward me
                  G                            Dm
I heard him say, "Hey, you," but never saw him swing
              Dm                 Am
He knocked me down on that nasty foor
                  G                         Dm
But somethin felt different than the times before


Chorus 1:

                 Dm               Am
Cause I got back up like my daddy taught
G                                     Dm
Life's gonna hurt ya, but ya brush it off
               Dm                         Am
Naw, you can't quit, ya gotta fight back, son
              G               Am
When you find yourself on the ground
                   Dm  Am  G  Dm
You gotta get back up


Verse 2:

                  Dm                   Am
I worked ten long years in a deep coal mine
                   G                   Dm
Til the roof caved in and it broke my spine
                  Dm                   Am
They put me in a chair and the doctor said,
                    G                             Dm
"I hate to tell ya, son, but ya ain't gonna walk again."
                Dm                      Am
So, I closed my eyes, and prayed to The Lord
                    G                       Dm
And then a fire ran through me that moment before


Chorus 2:

           Dm               Am
I got back up like my daddy taught
G                                     Dm
Life's gonna hurt ya, but ya brush it off
               Dm                         Am
Naw, you can't quit, ya gotta fight back, son
              G               Am
When you find yourself on the ground
                   Dm
You gotta get back up


Solo: Dm  Am  G  Dm (2x Softly pickin the second time)


Verse 3:

             Dm                    Am
When my time comes and they lay me down
               G                     Dm
In an old pine box in the cold, cold ground
                Dm               Am
I won't rest in peace too long before
                G                  Dm
Heaven calls my name and my spirit sours


Chorus 3:

                  Dm                   Am
And I'll get back up when that trumpet sounds
           G                            Dm
Naw, there ain't no grave gonna hold me down
             Dm                   Am
I'll meet my Father when that day comes
          G                 Am
And it's all (and it's all) because
          G                 Am
And it's all (and it's all) because
           Dm
I got back up


Ending: Dm  Am  G  Dm  Dm  Am  G  Am  Dm  
The endin consists of a lotta strummin and mutin.
Just listen to the track and match it up.
