Joe Nichols - The Impossible

I've put a lot of chords into this, but you can probably get away
without playing a lot of them... (sounds nicer if you do though!)
The intro and ending (also after 1st chorus), just alternates between
A and A(add9), so experiment to get it to get the timing right.

A           =   x02220                     A(add9)     =   x02200

D           =   xx0232                     A/Ab        =   4x2220

F#m         =   244222                     E           =   022100

F#m(add9)   =   244224                     Bm          =   x24432

A/Db        =   x42220                     F#m7        =   242252

F+          =   xx3221



A             A(add9)           D                              A
My dad chased monsters from the dark and checked underneath my bed,
             A/Ab             F#m        D    E       A
And he could lift me with one arm way up over top his head.
         A(add9)      D                              A
He could loosen rusty bolts with a quick turn of his wrench,
          A/Ab               F#m      D     E    D
He pulled splinters from his hand and never even flinched.
                F#m            F#m(add9)
In 13 years I'd never seen him cry, 
        Bm               A/Db    D        E  
But the day that grandpa died, I realized.

[ Tab from: ]
Unsinkable ships sink,
Unbreakable walls break,
              F#m                    F#m7
Sometimes the things you think would never happen
D                E
Happen just like that.
Unbendable steel bends,
       E                F+   D
If the fury of the wind is unstoppable.
     Bm               A/Db     D
I've learned to never underestimate
E      A 
 The impossible.


A          A(add9)       D                           A
Then there was my junior year, Billy had a brand new car.
       A/Ab              F#m              D         E        A 
It was late the road was wet, I guess the curve was just too sharp.
          A(add9)       D                                    A
I walked away without a scratch, they brought the helicopter in,
      A/Ab              F#m                  D     E     D
Billy couldn't feel his legs, they said he'd never walk again.
                                F#m           F#m(add9)
But Billy said he would and his mom and daddy prayed,
        Bm          A/Db           D          E
And the day we graduated, he stood up to say:


A   A(add9)  F#m  D  E

So don't tell me that its over,
           F#m           F#m(add9)
Don't give up on you and me.
               Bm               A/Db
'Cause there's no such thing as hopeless,
   D            E
If you believe...
