D  G  A  Asus A
INTRO


G(add9)
Stack of bills on the kitchen table,

Out go the lights and off goes the cable.
D   
 If she don't pay em by the 15th,
     A
Then it don't look like she's gonna be able.
G(add9)
 Two mouths to feed, two jobs barely get it done,

A lot on the plate for a single mom of 31.
         D                         A                     G
From the outside lookin' in, you'd think her world would crumble,
                                        A
But she keeps finding that light at the end of the tunnel.


    D       F#m       G
But somehow she keeps getting by,
              D                         Bm     
The only soft shoulder she knows is off some old broken road,
      A                  G
She's goin' down...she's goin' down.
D         F#m            G
Sometimes she feels like throwin' in the towel,
    A     Bm             G                A               Bm
But she's not, no matter what she's gonna give her kids a better life,
          A     G
Than what she's got...
                A                   G(add9)  A  Asus A
And that's what keeps her getting by.


G(add9)
 Friday at noon its parent/teacher day,

Its Johnson Elementary or half a shift's pay,
D
She wouldn't miss it for the world.
G(add9)
She looks around at all the daddies in the room,

Wishin' her kids had one of them too.
     D                             A                          G
This ain't how she planned it, her life's goin' ten different ways,
                              A
Its off to little league, and then to ballet..



    D       F#m       G
But somehow she keeps getting by,
              D                         Bm     
The only soft shoulder she knows is off some old broken road,
      A                  G
She's goin' down...she's goin' down.
D         F#m            G
Sometimes she feels like throwin' in the towel,
    A     Bm             G                A               Bm
But she's not, no matter what she's gonna give her kids a better life,
          A     G
Than what she's got...
                A                    D
And that's what keeps her getting by.


C              G         D
 In every dark cloud oh, she keeps findin' that
F       G     A
 Silver lining.


D  F#m  G
INSTRUMENTAL


D         F#m            G
Sometimes she feels like throwin' in the towel,
    A     Bm             G                A               Bm
But she's not, no matter what she's gonna give her kids a better life,
          A     G
Than what she's got...
                A                    Bm   A  G
And that's what keeps her getting by.
                  A                   G(add9)  A  Asus A
Yeah, that's what keeps her getting by.
