Tone: [G]
Intro:
[C7] [D7] [G]
Verse:
[Em]Wonder how I d[A7]didn’t die
T[C]his is not my l[Cm]ife. I’m no
surv[G]ivor, I only h[D]appened [B7]to surv[Em]ive.
Wonder how I sl[A7]sleep at night
Well I c[C]count pink elephants, blessings and skeletons,
[D7]Down the days I have left, with one eye open
Th[G]That was me screaming “xxxxx I am r[G7]reality”
Then stumbling off to l[C]lose myself
in a br[A7]brown paper bag, ‘cause me and
Sw[G]eet Evan Williams have a d[B7]ate down on Avenue[Em]
a staving [Em7]shakes scraping c[Em7]hange till dayb[Em]reak
Turns out a[A7]anyone can eat out the trash
Then wake[D]wake up on the freeway mid-crash
 
Chorus:
I was dr[G]drunk
When I made my b[D]bed
Now with the h[D7]half-decade hangover
I lay do[C]down in [G]it [C7]
W[D7]What have I d[G]done?
Don’t know what I’ve s[D]said?
It’s a half-[D7]half-decade hungover
Either t[B7]this, in jail or d[Em]dead
It’s a h[C]half-decade hungover
Jesus C[Cm]Christ, my aching he[G]head
 
Verse:
[Em]Waste not, want not b[A7]borrowed time
[C]Lender knows I’ve t[Cm]tried
To make it r[G]right, give back my l[D]life and [B7]if not
T[Em]Take it ‘cause lately I’ve been thinking maybe I could
Take it or l[A7]leave it if I can’t at
least break even then I’m leaving when
I been f[C]feelin’ this awful since I hit bottom then
s[D7]said “hand me my shovel, man, I’m going in!”
Oh br[G]brother -man, you call that rec[G7]recovered?
Tripped on a c[C]couple steps, and coll[A7]collapsed on the stairs
Broke my n[G]neck on the backs of those who [B7]I’ve hurt and scared
Like it’s a g[Em]ood thing you[Em7] said
“you’ve got your w[Em7]hole life ah[Em]ead”
Oh great, an[A7]another half a century to live to regret
I’d rather b[D7]be anybody else instead
 
Chorus:
‘Cause I was dr[G]drunk
When I made my b[D]bed
Now with the h[D7]half-decade hangover
I lay do[C]down in [G]it [C7]
W[D7]What have I d[G]done?
Don’t know what I’ve s[D]said?
It’s a half-[D7]half-decade hungover
Either t[B7]this, in jail or d[Em]dead
It’s a h[C]half-decade hungover
Jesus C[Cm]Christ, my aching he[G]head
 
[Bridge:] [Em] [C7] [C] [Cm] [G] [B] [Em] [A7] [C] [D]
S[G]Sober, but still so much still hangs [G7]over.
Please believe me when I s[C]say I’ve
poured my whole p[C7]past down the drain
Say that [D7]a second chance is a ch[B7]chance I can take
But I c[Em]can’t make [Em7]amends for things[Em7] I don’t rem[Em]ember
I can only sa[A7]say “I’m sorry” and occa[B7]occasionally pray
Guess you’ll [Em]just have to [Em7]take my [Em7]word that I’ve c[Em]changed
After [D7]one thousand eight hundred twe[D]twenty five days
 
Chorus:
I was dr[G]drunk
When I made my b[D]bed
Now with the h[D7]half-decade hangover
I lay do[C]down in [G]it [C7]
W[D7]What have I d[G]done?
Don’t know what I’ve s[D]said?
It’s a half-[D7]half-decade hungover
Hand me [B7]my ibuprof[Em]ibuprofen
It’s a h[C]half-decade hungover
Jesus C[Cm]Christ, my aching hea[G]head
