I Wish That Wasn't All
Joe Nichols

Written By: Chris DuBois and Ashley Gorley

Intro:
D    G    A    D    G    A    D

Verse One:
D                G            A              D
"I'm No Stranger to the Rain" came on my radio today
G                   D                A
I hadn't heard that voice in way too long
D                    G               A                 D
I've still got those worn out tapes, the only three or four he made
       G        A                D      G  A  D
What a shame, I wish that wasn't all

Verse Two:
Hearing that song took me back to my senior year, the year I asked
Mary Ellen Mayfield to the prom
She agreed to go as friends, I remember thinking "man, I wish,
Lord I wish that wasn't all"

Chorus One:
D                  G          A           D
Ain't it funny how sometimes, we can be unsatisfied
G              D                  A     Asus   A
With things we should be thankful for
D                 G                 A                 D
Like an old Keith Whitley song or a slow dance at the senior prom
Em               D                 A
Some things just leave you wanting more

Verse Three:
Like the way I felt that June, when Dad called me with the news
Through tears he told me my granddad was gone
He lived 'til he was 95, I know that's a good long life still I wish,
Lord I wish that wasn't all

Chorus Two:
Ain't it funny how sometimes, we can be unsatisfied
With things we should be thankful for
Like the time we get to spend with the ones we love, family and friends
Some things just leave you wanting more

G    D    A

Verse Four:
I thank God that I found you, until now I never knew
That a love could be this strong
I could stay right here and hold you close for ten forevers in a row, still I'd wish
    A                Em     D
I'd wish that wasn't all
       G             A                D
Yeah I wish, Lord, I wish that wasn't all

D    G    A    D    G    A    D

A great song from an excellent album.
There should be more singers like this
in country music. Long live tradition!

Thanks a lot. This is my favorite song on
this CD.

Yes, this album is awesome, this is also my favorite song on the album. Joe is just the man, when it comes to new country artists. The first time I heard this song was awesome, because Keith Whitley is my idol, and when it started off and he made the reference to Keith I knew right then that Joe Nichols is a true country artist. AWESOME!
