Thats Why Im Here

Song Author Kenny Chesney Submitted by: Anonymous
Verse 1

[D]No I ain't had [G]nothing to drink
[A]I knew that's probably [D]what you'd think
[G]If I dropped [A]by this time of [D]night
[D]Remember [G]way back when
I [A]promised you I[D]'d drop in
[G]At one of those [A]meetings down at the [D]Y [D]    
Well, [G]they started talkin [A]bout steps you take
Mista[D]kes you made, the hearts you break
And the [G]price you pay [G]    
I almost [A]walked awa[A]y  
You could [G]hear a pin drop [A]When this old man
Sto[D]od up and said I'm gonna' say it again
Like I [G]do every week[G]    
For those who [A]don't know me[A]    



[D]It's the simple [G]things in life
Like the [A]kids at home and a [D]loving wife
That you [G]miss the most, when you [A]lose control
And every[G]thing you love starts to [A]disappear
The [D]devil takes your hand and says no fear
Have anoth[G]er shot, [A]just one more beer
Yeah, I've been [G]there, [A] that's why I'm here

Verse 2
[D]This ole boy stood [G]up in the aisle
[A]Said he'd been living a [D]life of denial
And he [G]cried as he [A]talked about wasted [D]years [D]    
[D]I couldn't be[G]lieve what I heard
[A]It was my life [D]word for word
[G]And all of the sudden [A]it was clear [A]    

Chorus

I know for [G]us it may be too [A]late
But it would [G]mean the world to me
If you were [A]there when I stand to say



[D]It's the simple [G]things in life
Like the [A]kids at home and a [D]loving wife
That you [G]miss the most, when you [A]lose control
And every[G]thing you love starts to [A]disappear
The [D]devil takes your hand and says no fear
Have anoth[G]er shot, [A]just one more beer
Yeah, I've been t[G]here, [A] that's why I'm h[D]ere  
G A no chord
Oh I've been there, that's why I'm here






Verse 1

No I ain't had nothing to drink
I knew that's probably what you'd think
If I dropped by this time of night
Remember way back when
I promised you I'd drop in
At one of those meetings down at the Y
Well, they started talkin bout steps you take
Mistakes you made, the hearts you break
And the price you pay
I almost walked away
You could hear a pin drop When this old man
Stood up and said I'm gonna' say it again
Like I do every week
For those who don't know me

It's the simple things in life
Like the kids at home and a loving wife
That you miss the most, when you lose control
And everything you love starts to disappear
The devil takes your hand and says no fear
Have another shot, just one more beer
Yeah, I've been there, that's why I'm here

Verse 2
This ole boy stood up in the aisle
Said he'd been living a life of denial
And he cried as he talked about wasted years
I couldn't believe what I heard
It was my life word for word
And all of the sudden it was clear

Chorus

I know for us it may be too late
But it would mean the world to me
If you were there when I stand to say

It's the simple things in life
Like the kids at home and a loving wife
That you miss the most, when you lose control
And everything you love starts to disappear
The devil takes your hand and says no fear
Have another shot, just one more beer
Yeah, I've been there, that's why I'm here
G A no chord
Oh I've been there, that's why I'm here
