[Verse 1]

 C F C 
I'm glad that you still came by
    Am F C 
It wasn't really icy outside
                F Am 
I was just in one of my moods
            F G C 
Now we're laughing on bed sheets in my room

[Verse 2]

 C F C 
My mother she slept on the couch
 Am F C 
While deer hooves made holes in the ground
           F Am       
Maybe my brother's blood
 F G C 
Dripped on me from the top bunk

[Chorus]

                   G Am F G Am F 
I keep telling myseeee--eeeelf, that everybody's tale's better than my own
         G Am F C 
And my Heeee--eeeeell is my own

[Verse 3]

 C F C 
The neighbors were young back then
 Am F C 
And their homes were new to them
                 F Am 
Now they can't sleep at night
         F G C Am G C 
'Cause their husbands are dying inside, their husbands are dying inside

[Chorus]

                   G Am F G Am F 
I keep telling myseeee--eeeelf, that everybody's tale's better than my own
         G Am F            
And my Heeee--eeeeell is my own

[Interlude]

 Am F Em F C G  

[Bridge]

        Am 
These houses are headstones
        F Em 
These basements they are graves
 F C G                    
After getting out, I never thought I would want back in
              C 
I want back in

[Chorus]

                   G Am F G Am F 
I keep telling myseeee--eeeelf, that everybody's tale's better than my own
         G Am F G Am F  
And my Heeee--eeeeell is my own
 G Am F 
everybody's tale's better than my own
         G Am F C 
And my Heeee--eeeeell is my own
