Count Your Blessings
by Pat Green

Written by: Erikson

INTRO  D

D
My mama always said, "Stand up to the truth. 
            G
There ain't no such thing as the fountain of youth.
D 
Two wrongs never made it a right. 
     A
The grass ain't always greener on the other side.
        G                           A
Better save your money for a rainy day.
G                      A            D
Count your blessings, come as they may."

D
Only Will Rogers never met a man he didn't like.
G
Always throw the first punch when it comes to a fight.
          D
It ain't over til it's over and the fat lady sings.
       A
Only quitters who lose throw their towel in the ring.
         G                                A
Well, I hope ya ain't workin' on a rainy day.
G                      A            D
Count your blessings, come as they may.

             A      
And it's a 'hush my mouth, landsakes alive'.
          G                               D
I don't believe that fishermen smell the same when they die.
A       
Never put your cart before the horse,
G                       A
Unless it knows how to push another horse.
G                                          A
Seems like I'm always dreamin' on a rainy day.
G                      A            D
Count your blessings, come as they may.

D                              
And it was grandpa who said, "Son, you can't buy love.
     G             
You can jump in with both feet but don't jump the gun.
D          
Stay outta trouble. Count your lucky stars.
       A
Never get drunk in two states inside the same bar."
                G                          A
Seems like I'm always drinkin' on a rainy day.
G                      A            D
Count your blessings, come as they may.

D 
Gradma who said, "Silence is golden.
           G         
The only answer is one is the almighty beholder. 
   D                  
A bird in the hand is better than two in the nest.
A   
Don't ya count your chickens before they hatch.
G                                A
Always save a lover for a rainy day.
G                      A           D
Count your blessings, come as they may.


             A      
And it's a 'hush my mouth, landsakes alive'.
          G                               D
I don't believe that fishermen smell the same when they die.
A       
Never put your cart before the horse,
G                       A
Unless it knows how to push another horse.
    G                                             A
It seems like I'm dancehall dreamin' on my rainy day.
G                      A           D
Count your blessings, come as they may.

D      
Talk bein' cheap, well I took their advice 
         G 
And the older I get the more I know they were right.
D    
What works for me may not work for you.
A
Everything I said was the God dang truth.
         G                               A
Well, I hope you ain't loney on a rainy day. 
G                      A            D
Count your blessings, come as they may.

              G
And they're etched in my mind,
                 A
I could never forget 'em.
G                            A           D
See, it ain't what ya said, just how ya said it.

D  G  D  A  D  2X
