Eric Church - Mistress Named Music

Chords and Lyrics Eric Church - Mistress Named Music


Artist : Eric Church
Song : Mistress Named Music

C
I still remember Miss Bessie singing
D
Black, wrinkled fingers on ivory keys
C D
Just five years old, my church shoes a-dangling
C G C
Yeah, she's long gone and I'm still chasing this song

G D G D
With a guitar full of freedom and a head full of lines
G D Em D
That nightlife full of demons has been a hell of a ride
D G Cadd9 G
I got a crazy heart, but I was born to lose it
D G Em D
Married to a dream with a mistress named music
C
No hope and squarely solitary

D
Enough whiskey and Coke, boys, to get me in a bind
C D
Amps juiced, the whole damn block could hear me
C
Even that cop car rolling past
G
By the time they hit the front door
D
I was out the back

G D G D
With a guitar full of freedom and a head full of lines
G D Em D
That nightlife full of demons has been a hell of a ride
D G Cadd9 G
I got a crazy heart, but I was born to lose it
D G Em D
Married to a dream with a mistress named music

D Cadd9 G D D Cadd9 Em D
(na na na...............)

C
White calloused fingers on bronze and nylon
C D
These same old boots are still tapping time
C D
Not quite the buzz I used to tie on
C G
But 'til I'm gone, I'll be chasing this song

G C (x2)

G
Stood there boldly sweatin' in the sun
C
Felt like a million, felt like number one
F C
The height of summer, I'd never felt that strong
G
Like a rock.

G
Like a rock - nothin' ever got to me
C
Like a rock - I was somethin' to see
F C
Like a rock
G
I was like a rock.

C D G Em
And even though we ain't got money, I'm so in love with you honey,
C D G Em
And everything will bring a chain of love.
C D G F
And in the morning when I rise, you bring a tear of joy to my eyes,
Em A D
And tell me everything is gonna be alright.

G C D
And I been from Tucson to Tucumcari,
G
Tehachapi to Tonapa
G Am C
Driven every kind of rig that's ever been made;
C D
Driven the back roads so I wouldn't get weighed

And if you give me
C D G
Weed, whites and wine,
G D
And you show me a sign;
D G CDC G
I'll be willin', to be movin'

G Em
Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
C D
He gets me my drinks for free
G Em
And he's quick with a joke and he'll light up your smoke
C D G
But there's some place that he'd rather be

G Em
He says, "Bill, I believe this is killing me."
C D
As the smile ran away from his face
G Em
"Well I'm sure that I could be a movie star
C D G
If I could get out of this place"

Em
la la la, di da da
Em D G
La la, di di da da dum

G Em
Sing us a song, you're the piano man
C D
Sing us a song tonight
G Em
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
C D G
And you've got us all feeling alright

G Em
I still feel 25 most of the time
C G
Still raise a little cane with the boys
G Em
Honkytonks and pretty women, lord I'm still right there with em
C G
Singing above the crowd and the noise

G
Sometimes I feel like Jesse James
Em
Just trying to make a name
C G
Knowing nothings gonna change who I am
G
I was a young troubadour
Em
When I rode in on a song
C G
and I'll be an old troubadour when I'm gone

G D G D
With a guitar full of freedom and a head full of lines
G D Em D
That nightlife full of demons has been a hell of a ride
D G Cadd9 G
I got a crazy heart, but I was born to lose it
D G Em D
Married to a dream with a mistress named music
