Kenny Chesney – Better As A Memory

This video is requested from GuitarTutee.

Standard Tuning:

D C#/D Bm G

i move on like a (D) sinners prayer
i let ’em go like a (A) levee breaks
walk away as if (Bm) i don’t care
learn to shoulder (G) my mistakes
i’m built to fade like your (D) favorite song
getting reckless when (A) there’s no need
laugh as your stories (Bm) ramble on
break my heart but (G) it won’t bleed
my only friends are (Bm) pirates, it’s just who (A) i am
i’m (G) better as a (A) memory than (D) as your man

i’m never sure when the (D) truth won’t do
i’m pretty good on a (A) lonely night
I move on the way a (Bm) storm blows through
i never stay, but then (G) again, i might
i struggle sometimes to (D) find the words
always sure (A) until i doubt
walk a line (Bm) until it blurs
build walls too high (G) to climb out
but, i’m honest to a (Bm) fault, it’s just who (A) i am
i’m (G) better as a (A) memory than (D) as your man

(G) I see you leanin’, (D/F#) you’re bound to fall
(A) I don’t wanna be that (D) mistake
(G) i’m just a dreamer, (D/F# and nothing more
(Em) you should know it before it gets too (A) late

cause good-bye’s are like a (D) roulette wheel
you never know where they’re (A) gonna land
first you’re spinning, then you’re (Bm) standing still
left holding a (G) losin’ hand
one day you’re gonna (D) find someone
right away, you’ll (A) know it’s true
that all of your (Bm) seeking is done
Its just a part of the (G) passing through
right there in that (Bm) moment
you’ll finally under(A)stand
that i was (G) better as a (A) memory than (Bm) as your man
(G) better as a (A) memory than (D) as your man
