              E                          A         E 
She said it's none of my business but it breaks my heart
            C#m        B          A        E 
I dropped a dozen cheap roses in my shopping cart
        E                        A        E
Made it out to the truck without breaking down
C#m      B              A         E 
Everybody knows you in a speed trap town

             E                            A           E    
Well, it's a Thursday night but there's a high school game
        C#m          B                A     E 
Sneak a bottle up the bleachers and forget my name
      E                 A       E 
These 5A bastards run a shallow cross
       C#m      B          A          E
It's a boys last dream and a mans first loss

       F#m       A             E            B      
And it never did occur to me to leave 'til tonight
        F#m           A            E  
There's no one left to ask if I'm alright
     F#m            A                 E             B  
I'll sleep until I'm straight enough to drive, then decide
           F#m          A              E 
If there's anything that can't be left behind

The doctor said Daddy wouldn't make it a year
But the holidays are over and he's still here
How long can they keep you in the ICU
Veins thru their skin like a faded tattoo

Was a tough state trooper till a decade back
When that girl who wasn't momma caused his heart attack
He didn't care about us when he was walking around
Just pulling women over in a speed trap

Chorus 2:
But it never did occur to me to leave 'til tonight
When I realized he'll never be all right
I'll sign my name and say my last goodbyes, then decide
That there's nothing here that can't be left behind

The road got blurry when the sun came up
So I slept a couple hours in the pickup truck
Drank a cup of coffee by an Indian mound
A thousand miles away from that speed trap town

A thousand miles away from that speed trap town
