Wolves 03:45
(Reid Cain 2012) Capo 1 [Am] This old heart, is [G] beaten but not [Am] broken These old scars, they show I don't back down it's my time, to stand up and be counted it's my chance, to turn it all around Capo 1 [F] Now the wolves are [C] circling in the [G] darkness closing in just outside the flames they smell blood but in their eyes I see weakness [F] For they know this old [G] dog won't back [Am] down Am- C This old mind, got books of words unspoken These old eyes, have seen a lot of strife it's my time, to get up and start living it's my chance, to get it turned around Now the man, who writes the blacklist knows about me he's heard tales, and I'm sad to say they're true but it's my time, to stand up and be counted it's my chance, to turn it all around
(Reid Cain 2011) Intro [Em-D] [D] They buried him down near [G] Southwood road last [D] week Near the old oak tree that [G] hangs over Southwood [D] Creek now [C] don't go crying for Mrs. [Em] Jackson's loss She [C] put him under [Em] neath that cross for [C] all the hard times, the [G] black eyes, and a broken [D] heart [G] he weren't the devil but he [A7] sure did play the [D] part [D7] They had a nice little place on the edge of town said they were planning to raise some kids and settle down but things were getting bad behind closed doors and what finally made her snap no one really knows some say the hard times, the black eyes and a broken heart [G] he weren't the devil but he [A7] sure did play the [D] part Bridge Am-G-Em-G... Em-D [D] They buried him down near [G] Southwood road last [D] week Near the old oak tree that [G] hangs over Southwood [D] Creek if you want to hear more of Mrs. Jackson's tale you can go find her there at the old county jail doing hard time free of black eyes and a broken heart [G] he weren't the devil but he [A7] sure did play the [D] part
Moving On 03:17
(Reid Cain 2010) Capo 1 [A] It's a long way up then a [G] short and painful [A] fall but a man will lose it all if he don't stand straight and tall in that [F] river of [G] love I'm just a [A] stone Now I see the ways I'd been digging my own grave you had me living like a slave check to check, and day by day finally free of your ball and chain CH [G] This chapters done gonna turn the page on this... [D] tragedy [G] Burn that book pick the pieces up of what's [D] left of me though [C] I don't believe, I've ever [G] felt so free... [one strike D] Break: Now I have the time to focus on my life try to make it worth a dime take what's wrong and make it right Feels so good to be moving on
Old Days 03:09
(R. Cain 2010) [C] say good bye to the [F] old days [C] honey greet the new day [G] with a [C] smile from now on its [F] coming up [C] aces [G] sunny days and [F] clear blue [C] skies say good bye to the days you felt lonely say hello to a brand new life Break it down then build it up stronger we'll spread our wings and finally take flight CH: [Am] No one [G] said that this was gonna be [C] easy Love takes work but its worth the time Learn from the past with an eye on the future Paint the bigger picture of our lives Standing here at the top of this mountain looking down on the valley below thinking back on the path we followed Grateful I didn't walk alone
(R. Cain 2010) ¾ time capo 2 [C] taking turns at the wheel, driving all [G] night [G] spinning the radio dial, there nothing to [C] find Its an awfully long journey back home but is worth every mile seeing the house where I grew up sure makes me smile [Am] Home [G] sweet [C] home, [F] down in the [C] valley, [G] that little old [C] town Break My folks still live out in a place where you can see the stars away from the lights of this city and these small fenced in yards We'll sit on the porch and we'll talk of the places we been its so nice to back there in the valley again Home sweet home, down in the valley, that little old town
Wayward Pony 02:47
(Hayley Thomas 2012) capo 1 [Em] Well, I've always been a wayward pony as [G] wild as the nights are [D] long Don't [Em] put much faith in matrimony cause I [G don't plan to [D] stay [Em] around You can pen me in with the others, but I'm [G] smarter than you [D] think You [Em] can lead this pony to water but you [G] can't make this [D] pony [Em] drink CH1: D A E Am [G] Babe I was born to roam, [D] you know how this story goes [Am] Man wants what he can't have and when he get it he don't know quite what to do, now listen boy it's true when you open up your eyes, I'll be... Long gone. -break verse Well, I've always been a wayward pony as wild as the sun is high we'll go for a ride but you don't own me, no I don't plan to stay the night When I go running across that meadow know my heart is running wild I think of you and though it's a pity, I ain't gonna miss child CH1 CH2 God's kingdom is our home, you know how that story goes, many want what they can't have and when they get it they don't know quite what to do, never had or known the rules and when they open up their eyes life is long gone
Living Proof 02:32
(R. Cain 2010) capo 2 [C] I've always been a different, some say a little strange standing on the outside trying to see in but [F] I don't play [G] by the rules I've been [C] given [F] Fall into line ain't [G] what I call [C] livin' I've had to make changes to stay in the game but I think they prefer everyone sounds the same I don't want to part of that business with all them clones driving all the decisions [Am] I just want to pick up and [G] play this beat up old [C] guitar telling stories about my life and where I been so far Harlan said it's three chords and the truth Here I am, living proof Now we're pushing the boundaries, and leading the way trying to make a little difference each and everyday some say that we're fools or flat out dated But I won't give up my faith in real country music
This Time 03:42
(R. Cain 2010) [Am] When the silence [F] starts I know your [C] leaving [Am] though I know [F] you got a lot to [C] say when you drive I off I have the feeling that you might not be back [G] again CH: then I tell my self I'm wrong this [C] time this time [F], this time [G], I tell myself I'm wrong this [C] time Lately its a fragile bridge between us This kind of love won't pull us through you won't calm down and I won't listen We'll never hear each others point of [G] view When I sleep I dream of sunshine but I wake up to stormy skies Its hard to see when you've been blinded to the shattered look in a lovers eyes
Desolation 03:33
(R. Cain 2010) capo 2 [A] That spring it started [D] hot as I re [A] call I got laid off down [D] at the hardware [A] store said folks don't come by [D] like the good old days They just hit the box store [G] off the new highway And I [C] know they [D] say It's the [C] modern [D] way And [C] things have gone to [D] far to turn back [A] now That [G] year deso [D] lation came to [A] town The summer never cooled and the lakes all dried and the crops all starved in perfect little lines And the farmers they all started looking lean but the grass in L.A. sure stayed nice and green Now the state it had her put in just last year with that highway you don't have to come round here just drive on through what once were planted fields then hit the box store I hear they got some deals
For Me 04:30
(Reid Cain 2011) [C] There's a heart and its [Em] lonely there's a clock turning slowly there's the bed cold and empty ...[D] and the walls, and the [C] bars, [G] for me There's a man in a prison for a crime he won't deny freedom he hardly remembers ...[D] behind the walls, and the [C] bars, [G] for me There's a wife now six feet under There's a boy left without a home and the days stretch on forever ...[D] behind the walls, and the [C] bars, [G] for me
