Capo on 1st fret.
I think this is pretty close, if not, any contributions are appreciated.

She didn't see me see her cryin

As she sat there by the window

A E Bb
On a southbound greyhound leavin' town,

The hardest thing I've ever done,

Was to walk away and let that woman go

A Bb
Cause she came close to turnin' me around,

Now I know she missed her Mama,

Cause thats the kind of life she comes from,

A E Bb
Ain't no kind of life I'm ever gonna have,

She said she'd call me from the station,

But I'll be gone before she get there,

A Bb
And I'll see her every time I'm lookin' back,

A E A Bb
Chorus: Heaven knows I ain't no angel, And I don't always do the
right thing,

A F# A
Bb A F#
And right now I know that she don't understand but
I'll sleep better knowin,

A F#
A Bb E
The only thing I ever loved is on that bus to

Tonight I'll slip back in the shadows,
And I'll sip a glass of whiskey
And I'll try to keep from whisperin' her name,
Buth there's some highways I ain't driven
And there's some towns that I ain't lived in,
And there's some times that I can't get out of the rain
And Lord I can't bare to break
Another promise that I made her
So I made out like I wanted her to go
And I'm better off believin'
Thats she's better off without me,
'Cause I don't want her to see me do her wrong

Repeat Chorus
A E Bb E
Ending: Heaven knows I don't always do the right thing

A E A Bb
And right now I know she don't understand

But I'll sleep better knowin

The only thing I ever loved,

A Bb A Bb E
Is on that bus to Birmingham
