Intro: D A/E A6/E

D                   A
I don't like humus, I hate long lines,
Cmaj7              Em
Nosy neighbors and venetian blinds,
D                      A
Chirping news anchors, alter my mood,
Em                         C
I'm offended by buzz-words like "awesome" and "dude".

D                          A
I look like a train wreck, I feel like a blob,
C                        G
Till you get to know me, you may think I'm a snob,
D6                D      A              D6
But I'm closer to heaven than I've ever been.

D6                 A
I don't eat sushi, I don't smoke grass,
C                     Em            Em7
I don't wear pyjamas, I don't drive fast.
D                  A
I hate idle gossip and tassled shoes,
Em7                C
Slick politicians, they give me the blues.

D                      A
I don't ride in Limos, I can't play golf,
Cmaj7               G
I don't own a rifle that will blow your head off,
        D                A              D
But I'm closer to heaven than I've ever been.

Break: D A Bm7 G D A D

    Bm7    A/C# D        Bm7   A/C# D
I'm riding that way from cradle to grave,
    Bm7  A      D       G            G6 A
I'm learning to feel my hands on the wheel.

D                  A
I love my friends, I love my wife,
C                  Em7
Four little babies are the light of my life.
D                    A
I love Sissy Spacek, I love Guy Clark,
Em                         C                     Gmaj7
All the biscuits and gravy I can eat with a fork.

D6               D       A
I don't wanna be famous, who gives a damn?
Cmaj7                 G
I just wanna be happy where ever I am,
    D6            A                F#m7 Bm7  Gmaj7
And I'm closer to heaven than I've ever been,
D6     D      A                     D6
I'm closer to heaven than I've ever been,

D A Bm7 G D A Bm7 G D6 A D6 D A D A D6 D
