The Overpass

Ward Davis

Tom: C
Verse 

C 
Well he wakes up, nice and dry 

Hears the cars and trucks above him rollin by 
                   Am                 F 
He lights a cig…Takes a swig 
                C 
He does this everyday 

C 
Wife and kids….weren’t enough 

Started running round…drinking way too much 
      Am                     F 
Takin pills…..chasing thrills 
                    C 
Till he lost everything 

G F Somedays he’s sober long enough to feel regret C But he’ll find a bottle and it won’t last G F Cause he can’t bear the thought of what it took to get Dm G From what he had to what he has C Under the Overpass
Verse C He prefers….sunshine to rain Cause the liquor store’s half a mile away Am F But folks give more…on days it pours C So it works out either way
G F Somedays he’s sober long enough to feel regret C But he’ll find a bottle and it won’t last G F Cause he can’t bear the thought of what it took to get Dm G From what he had to what he has C Under the Overpass
Instrumental (Am-G-C)
G F He’s just biding time…the only way he knows C Numbing pain he can’t get past G F He’ll be there until he’s got somewhere to go. Dm But who knows how long he has
Verse C Well he wakes up, nice and dry Hears the cars and trucks above him rollin by Am F He lights a cig…Takes a swig C He does this everyday
