THAT'S WHY I'M HERE
Kenny Chesney
(Smith/Springer)
From the CD: I Will Stand
BNA Records


Capo II Fret

Intro
 
(D) No I ain't had (G) nothing to drink
(A) I knew that's probably (D) what you'd think 
(G) If I dropped (A) by this time of (D) night 
Remember (G) way back when  
(A) I promised you (D) I'd drop in 
(G) At one of those (A) meetings down at the (D) Y       
Well, (G) they started talkin bout (A) steps you take      
Mis(D)takes you (D/C#) make, the (D/B) hearts you (D/A) break      
And the (G) price you pay         
I almost (A) walked away         
You could (G) hear a pin drop when (A) this old man  
(D) Stood up and (D/C#) said I'm gonna' (D/B) say it a(D/A)gain      
Like I (G) do every week            
For those who (A) don't know me

(D) It's the simple (G) things in life         
Like the (A) kids at home and a (D) loving wife   
That you (G) miss the most, when you (A) lose control    
And every(G)thing you love starts to (A) disappear  
The (D) devil takes your (D/C#) hand and (D/B) says no (D/A) fear   
Have a(G)nother shot, just (A) one more beer              
Yeah, I've been (G) there,                
(A) That's why I'm (D) here

Repeat Intro

(D) This ol boy stood (G) up in the aisle
(A) Said he'd been living a (D) life of denial       
And he (G) cried as he (A) talked about wasted (D) years
I couldn't be(G)lieve what I heard
(A) It was my life (D) word for word
(G) And all of the sudden it was (A) clear

(D) It's the simple (G) things in life         
Like the (A) kids at home and a (D) loving wife   
That you (G) miss the most, when you (A) lose control    
And every(G)thing you love starts to (A) disappear  
The (D) devil takes your (D/C#) hand and (D/B) says no (D/A) fear   
Have a(G)nother shot, just (A) one more beer              
Yeah, I've been (G) there,                
(A) That's why I'm (D) here       

(G) I know for us it may be too la(A)te             
But it would (G) mean the world to me           
If you were there when I stand to (A) say

(D) It's the simple (G) things in life         
Like the (A) kids at home and a (D) loving wife   
That you (G) miss the most, when you (A) lose control    
And every(G)thing you love starts to (A) disappear  
The (D) devil takes your (D/C#) hand and (D/B) says no (D/A) fear   
Have a(G)nother shot, just (A) one more beer              
Yeah, I've been (G) there,                
(A) That's why I'm (D) here (D/C#) (D/B) Oh, I've (D/A) been 
(G) there....(no chord) that's why I'm (D) here
