That'll Get You Ten
written by Eric Church and Wade Kirby
Album: "Leave the Light On"

INTRO: D  C  G  D   D  C  G  C-G-D

D                  C
Just two years and seven days
G              D
Between me and legal age
D                      C
Just one clerk in that liquor store 
G                   D
Between me and that front door
My coat had deep pockets and he probably had a gunn
       C             G                       A7
Well I reckon he was watchin' 'cause he said son
That'll get you one

D        C          G            C   G
One year pickin' up trash on the highway
D         C       G                C     G
One phone call to hear your mama's heart break
C                          G                     A7
If you think it's worth it don't let me stop you son
N/C                    D
'Cause that'll get you one


          D                            C
She had a beer in her hand and she was comin' on strong
          G                  D
And I was just this close to takin' her home
Things were lookin' good when we left that bar
G                         D
'Til she stopped and said that's my car
That's when I saw the sticker that said Franklin County High
       C           G                 A7
Well I didn't even kiss the girl goodbye
'Cause that'll get you five

D          C          G          C     G
Five years bustin' up rocks on a chain gang
D              C              G         C    G
Poundin' and a-paintin' state plates in Sing Sing
C                           G           A7
Wonderin' if I'm ever gonna make it out alive
          D        C             G               C   G
And those tan legs might get me thinkin' 'bout a jailbreak
D         C             G         C    G
Askin' my mom to slip a file in a bunt cake
C                   G                     A7
Those bloodhounds'd probably haul me back in
N/C                D
And that's another ten

BREAK (2x)

D                 C
Boss man climbin' down my back
G                D
Won't cut me one inch of slack
       D                       C
'Tween that steel beam and the ground below
          G                 D
It'd be a nasty fall if the wind should blow
I don't see a witness, and we're up awful high
             C                G            A7
If he should lose his balance he might not survive
But that'll get you life

D            C             G           C    G
Pumpin' that iron with the boys on the cell block
D        C         G          C     G
Tyin' my soap to a rope so it don't drop
     C                   G              A7
'Til some old boy thinks my biceps look nice
D              C            G             C  G
Writin' to the governor and beggin' for a pardon
D               C         G           C   G
Thinkin' that's how Merle Haggard got started
C                        G            A7
Swappin' ciagarettes for mama's apple pie
D                C         G             C  G
Lookin' thru the glass and talkin' to my lawyer
D           C    G              C  G
Memorizin' "Moby Dick" and "Tom Sawyer"
C                        G                       A7
Tellin' the parole board I've learned wrong from right
N/C                       D  C  G
Yeah that'll get you life
C-G-D                D     C  G  C-G-D
Yeah that'll get you life
