Dadd4 D Dadd4
It’s New Year’s Day
D Dadd4
Just like the day before
D Bm
Same old skies of grey
G A
Same empty bottles on the floor
Bm G
Another year gone by
D Dadd4
And I’m thinking once again
D A
How can I take this losing hand
G
And somehow win

D Dadd4 D
Just give me one good year
Dadd4 D
To get my feet back on the ground

I’ve been chasing grace
Bm A
But grace ain’t so easily found
G D
One bad hand can devil a man
G A
Chase him and carry him down
G A
I gotta get out of here
D Dadd4 D D Dadd4
Just give me one good year

I’m burning oil
Engine’s running rough
I drive from job to job
But it’s never enough
I can’t find the will
To just up and get away
Some kind of chains holding me down
To make me stay.

Just give me one good year…..

D G A
It’s a bitter wind
Bm
In your face every day
F#m
It’s the little sins
A
That wear your soull away
G
When you start giving in
A Bm
Where do the promises all go
F#m
Will your darkest hour
A
Write a blank cheque on your soul

Just give me one good year
To get my feet back on the ground
I’ve been chasing grace
But grace ain’t so easily found
One bad hand can devil a man
A good one can turn him around
I gotta get out of here
Bm
Just give me one good year
G A
I gotta get out of here
D Dadd4 D
Just give me one good year
