   I pulled it off the wall and held it in my hands
Bm          A                       D/F#       G
   The cold steel and wood turned a boy into a man
Bm            A                   D/F#             G
   I held the hammer back fingers all red from the rust
Bm            A                   D/F#                G
   And I knew exactly where daddy hid the shells from us

Bm          A                        D/F#              G
   I left a note by the stove saying I wouldn’t be too long
Bm             A                    D/F#                G
   Didn’t want mama to call or come looking where I had gone
Bm              A                 D/F#         G
   Been blinded by the pain and I only had one thought
Bm         A                     D/F#                   G
   Set off for the woods pockets jangled while I walked

G                              Bm          D                G
   My hands were shaking oh so bad I could hardly hold that gun
                          Bm              D                 G
I shoved a round into the magazine it was my last chance to run
                                   Bm         D                 G
If this is a cry for help then I’m crying out loud help me understand
When I let it go and it hit the ground turns out God had other plans

Bm  A  D/F#  G  Bm  A  D/F#  G 

Bm             A                D/F#            G
   I felt the hand of God as he led me off that ledge
Bm                  A                   D/F#             G
   I left the rifle lying’ there in the leaves with my regrets
Bm           A                            D/F#           G
   Silhouette still in the paint where it hung up on the wall
Bm                  A                  D/F#               G
   Reminded me that I was saved when I could have lost it all




Bm    A   D/F#           G                    Bm    A    D/F#   G
               Turns out God had other plans
