             G                      F          C
You know I'm never right if I'm not right with you
    G                       F        C
And no one can make me feel like you do
           G                        F      C
I'd be the one to lay my heart down on the line

But darlin', I'm on your side
           G          Bm          B                    Db

How we gonna get there
(Rest)                     G          F  C

You might be right, and I'm out of touch
        G                         F            C
I guess everything I have to give just ain't enough
    G                             F         C
I'm trying to make the most outta what it's not
    G                                  F       C
Cuz darlin' I can't give you somethin' I ain't got

But darlin', I'm on your side
G          Bm          B                    Db

[Bridge]
Em                     C
I can feel it under my seat
C                      G
On the sideline of my life
G                         D
Watching rain fall to the ground
D                       G   Em
To the beat of the same old fight

Em                        C
Every song is brewing this war
C                             G
When we find ourselves in the thick of it
G                            D          D          D
Give a little bit, and we'll fly, we'll fly, we'll fly

[Chorus]
G       D
One way,
Em                 C
Everything's gotta be your way
G           D            C C
But darlin', I'm on your,
C
Darlin' I'm on your side
G          Bm          B                    Db
One wheel, four hands, two hearts tryin' to understand
C
How we gonna get there
G          Bm          B                    Db
One wheel, four hands, two hearts tryin' to understand
C                      D
How we gonna get there
D                 G     F  C

Highway 20 Ride chords – Zac Brown Band V5

 Highway 20 Ride  by Zac Brown Band
Capo 3

Intro
 C F C C G C Cadd9 C F C 
I ride east every other Friday, and if I had it my way
    Cadd9 G C 
My day would not be wasted on this drive
   Cadd9 C F C 
I want so bad to hold you, but son there's things I haven't told you
      Cadd9 C G 
Your mom and me just couldn't get along

      C F G 
So I drive, and I think about my life,
            C F G 
And wonder why, that I slowly die inside
      C Cmaj7 Am F G 
Every time I turn that truck around, right at the Georgia line
             C Cmaj7 Am F G C 
I count the days, and the miles back home to you, on that Highway 20 ride.

 C F C C G C Cadd9 C F C 
A day might come you'll realize, and if you see through my eyes
       Cadd9 G C 
There was no other way to work it out
       Cadd9 C F C 
And a part of you might hate me, but son please don't mistake me
       Cadd9 C G 
For a man who didn't care at all.

        C F G 
And I drive, and I think about my life,
            C F G 
And wonder why, that I slowly die inside
      C Cmaj7 Am F G 
Every time I turn that truck around, right at the Georgia line
                 C Cmaj7 Am F G C 
And I count the days, and the miles back home to you, on that Highway 20 ride.

 C F C C G C C F G 
So when you drive, and the years go flying by
               C F G 
I hope you'll smile, if I ever cross your mind
             F G F G 
It was the pleasure of my life, and I cherished every time
              C Cmaj7 Am F 
And my whole world, it begins and ends with you
         G C 
On that Highway 20 Ride.
 F G C 
On that Highway 20 Ride.  (repeat to fade)

Who says you can't go back?
Who says you can't go back,
Back to where you started from? (are you ready?)
Who says you can't go back? (are you ready?)
Who says you can't go back,
Back to where you started from? (are you ready)
Who says you can't go back? (are you ready?)

The bone falls on the river Styx
The man who makes you dead
Coins lay on his eyes
Just to pay your fare

I Play The Road chords – Zac Brown Band V2

 , so I welcome any corrections or comments, but be nice please!


Capo 4

 D G 
 I play the road, 
         A D 
And the highway is our song, 
           G D 
And every city's like the same three chords 
      Em A D A7sus4 D 
Been helping us along when the story's told 
         G D 
And the crowd has come and gone 
 G D A D 
Shaking off the miles and trying to make it home 


       G D 
Every exit is a season, 
       A D 
Every signal is a beacon
         G D  
And the wind, it carries me
        Em A  
And it eases up my load
      G D  
Everyday I drag the turns
       A D  
Every candle still burns 
           G D 
And every lesson I have learned 
           A D 
Brings us closer to the crowd 


 D G 
 I play the road, 
         A D 
And the highway is our song, 
           G D 
And every city's like the same three chords 
      Em A D A7sus4 D 
Been helping us along when the story's told 
         G D 
And the crowd has come and gone 
 G D A D 
Shaking off the miles and trying to make it home 


          G D   
Well the bus it is our steeple, 
           A D 
It brings us to the people 
     G D 
And they will be there waiting, 
 Em A 
Dancing young and old
           G D  
And every one of us gets tired,
           A D  
But every one remains inspired 
           G D 
And every one of us require 
          A D 
To keep picking through our souls 


 D G 
 I play the road, 
         A D 
And the highway is our song, 
           G D 
And every city's like the same three chords 
      Em A D A7sus4 D 
Been helping us along when the story's told 
         G D 
And the crowd has come and gone 
 G D A D 
Shaking off the miles and trying to make it home 


            G A 
She says, "Daddy where do you go 
           D A D 
When you leave me all these nights 
        Em A  
With a suitcase and guitar in your hand? 
 G A D A D  
Kissing me and mom goodbye with a tear and a smile, 
 Em 
Where do you go, 
       G A B 
Daddy where do you go?" 


                 A 
I play the road, 
          B E 
And this highway is our song, 
                  A E 
And every city's like the same three chords 
      F# B E A E 
Been helping us along when the story's told 
         A E 
And the crowd is done and gone 
 A E B E  
Shaking off the miles and trying to make it home 
 A E 
Shaking off the miles
