Only God Knows Why

Kid Rock


(pick up tempo slightly from video)

G / D / C / G        

I've been sittin' here
Tryin' to find myself
I get behind myself
I need to rewind myself

Lookin' for the payback
Listen for the playback                                                                                                         
They say that every man bleeds
Just like me

I feel like number one
Yet I'm last in line
I watch my youngest son
And it helps to pass the time

I take too many pills
it helps to ease the pain
I made a couple dollar bills
still I feel the same

Everybody knows my name
They say it way out loud
A lot of folks fuck with me
It's hard to hang out in crowds

G         I guess that's the price you pay
F          To be some big shot like I am
C         Outstretched hands and one night stands
G         Still I can't find love

Am      And when your walls come tumbling down
Am/F   I will always be around

[lead - verse2x]     


People don't know about the
things I say and do
They don't understand about
the shit that I've been through

It's been so long
since I've been home
I've been gone....
I've been gone for way too long

Maybe I forgot all
the things I've missed
Oh somehow I know
there's more to life than this

I said it too many times
And I still stand firm
You get what you put in
And people get what they deserve

Still I ain't seen mine
No I ain't seen mine
I've been giving just ain't been gettin'
I've been walking that fair line

So I think I'll keep on walking
With my head held high
I'll keep moving on and
only God knows why

Only God..... Only God.....
Only God..... knows why

Only God..... knows....
why why why only God knows why

[outro - big /pre-chorus]
F/C      Take me to the river...hey
F/C      Won't you take me to the river...hey hey hey
