Quit While I'm Ahead
By Turnpike Troubadours
Tabbed By Larry Mofle
Tabbed 7/27/2012


            E
Well I wont lie and say I didn’t think the good ones all were taken 
            A                                E
Since there aint no peaches falling from the tree that I've been shaking 
         E        B7               C#m                A
And it's solitary sleeping in this bed that I've been making 
     E              B7             E
Well maybe I should quit while I'm ahead


Well my intent was being handed I never laid a hand
And the kindness of my gesture was a good far cry from grand
They were awful well intended, they were all that I can stand
Ah maybe I should quit while I'm ahead


Chorus 1:
        B7  
And now darlin if I called you, could you love me like a kid
          E 
Could you love me like you loved me way back when you really did
     B7
Well Darlin if I called you could you just pick up the phone
                A
Lord, I've been dancing with damnation and I'm drinking all alone
         E                B7                 C#m             A
And I am busted broke and bent and beat and 'bout halfway to dead
   E              B7              E                   E              B7              E
Ah maybe I should quit while I'm ahead, oh Lord, well maybe I should quit while I'm ahead



Well West Texas in the morning, little darling are you down 
Where the color of the country is your sweet eye shade of brown 
And if I told you how I felt, well you’d say boy get out of town
Well maybe I should quit while I'm ahead


Chorus 2:
Now darlin if I called you, could you love me like a kid
Could you love me like you loved me way back when you really did
Well Darlin if I called you would you even talk to me
When I am lit up like a star atop your favorite Christmas tree
And I am busted broke and bent and beat and 'bout half way to dead
Ah maybe I should quit while im ahead, oh Lord well maybe I should quit while I'm ahead

Instumental break

Chorus 1:
Now darlin if I called you, could you love me like a kid
Could you love me like you loved me way back when you really did
Well Darlin if I called you could you just pick up the phone
Lord, ive been dancing with damnation and I'm drinking all alone
And I am busted broke and bent and beat and 'bout half way to dead
Ah maybe I should quit while I'm ahead, oh lord well maybe I should quit while I'm ahead
