** Quick Disclaimer:  I am not a big fan of country, I'm just trying to get 
used to it for a lady friend...  This is a pretty sweet song though.

Intro:  G# Bb C Bb (Play twice)

Verse: Repeat G# Bb C Bb 

Floorboard's filled with baby toys, 
An' empty coke bottles an' coffee cups. 
Drivin' through the rain with no radio, 
Tryin' not to wake her up. 

Cell 'phone says "low battery", 
God, what if I break down? 
I'm just lookin' for an exit with a lotta lights, 
			**Don't play last Bb
A safe little interstate town. 

Chorus Part:

Just a cheap hotel, 
With a single bed, 
     G# G G#  
And cable TV 
Is good enough for me an' Emily. 

G# Bb C Bb  (twice)

Verse: (Same as above)

Some day, when she's old enough, 
She's gonna start askin' questions about him. 
Some kid at school brings his Dad for show an' tell, 
An' gets her little mind a-wonderin' 
[ Tab from: ]
"Where's my Daddy? Do I have one? 
"Does he not love me like you do?" 
Oh, maybe I'll find someone to love the both of us, 
An' I'll tell her when she's old enough to know the truth. 

Chorus Part: (Use full Chord)

Will it break her heart? 
Will she understand, 
That I had to leave? 
That's what was best for me an' Emily. 


That house was never clean enough
his dinner never warm enough. 
C			Bb			G#    Bb
Nothing I did was ever good enough to make him happy. 
C			 Bb		     G#	   
So, I guess, he gave me what he thought I deserved, 
              C			  Bb		    G#
But it would kill me if he ever raised his hand to her. 

Verse: (Same)

Big rigs are throwin' rain on my windshield, 
An' I feel like they're laughin' at me. 
Fin'lly the storm is lettin' up, 
An' the mornin' is breakin' free. 

Chorus Part:

It's a brand new day, 
It's a second chance. 
			**Hold Bb
Yesterday is just a memory, 
For me an' Emily. 

Play  G# Bb C Bb twice over the Ahs 

Verse/Big Finish: 

Floorboard is filled with baby toys, 
An' empty coke bottles an' coffee cups. 
Least there's one good thing that he gave me, 
An' she's startin' to wake up.

Random Thoughts:

 ** It sounds good to play the verses and some of the choruses with a quiet, 
kind of soft strum.

 ** Power Chords sound better for the Piano part and pretty much all of the 
song, but during some parts of the chorus, playing the full chord sounds a 
little better.

Well, that's pretty much everything.  Enjoy, and woo many!!
