FROM YOUR KNEES
Matt King / Patty Loveless
From the CD "Hard Country"
Atlantic Records


INTRO

He (C) tore down the work of 17 years
Brick by brick and (G) stone by (C) stone
No hammer was swingin', cause cheatin' and drinkin'
Don't (G) need no help wreckin' a home
Aww, but (C) when he came back to the dust and the rubble
Of what he has once called his (F) life
He dropped to his knees, in (C) sheer disbelief
At the (G) total destruction in (C) sight

There were (C) empty closests and (G) empty drawers
And a (C) tear-stained note on the (F) kitchen floor
And (C) burning memories, in the fire(G)place (G7)
He (C) waited too late to (G) say he was wrong
His (C) house was still standing, but his (F) home was gone
Brother (C) you would (E) not be(Am)lieve (D)
(F) What you can (G) see from your (C) knees

Fiddle Solo

(C) Right then and there, in an old sinner's prayer
He told things he (G) kept in the (C) dark
There was no use in lying, 'cause the man who was listenin'
Could (G) see every room in his heart
Well, he took (C) empty whiskey bottles, little black book and all
To the fire she left on the (F) grate
Sometimes a man will (C) change on his own
(G) Sometimes - I tell you, it (C) takes

(C) Empty closests and (G) empty drawers
And a (C) tearful confession on the (F) kitchen floor
And (C) burning memories, in the fire(G)place (G7)
He (C) waited too late to (G) say he was wrong
His (C) house was still standing, he'd (F) fight for his home
Brother (C) you would (E) not be(Am)lieve (D)
Brother (C) you would (E) not be(Am)lieve (Dsus) (D)
(F) What you can (G) see from your (C) knees
