2.

I’ve been a clown I’ve been a fool and I pushed on every chance, I searched far and wide tried to crawl out of G-d’s hand, But there’s stones I didn’t throw and hearts I didn’t break, And the little hope I held onto with a silver shining thread of faith.

chorus:

solo:

fiddle/Dobro - same as verse

bridge:

G / / / |C / / / |Em / / / |C / / / |

3.

Here’s to the place I found, the love I know, The earth and the sky that I call home, And here’s to the things I believe, bigger than me, And the moment I find myself right where I’m supposed to be.

last chorus:

It’s a big ole world, but I found my way, From the hell and the hurt that led me straight to this .... Yeah, it’s a big ole world but I found my way, From the hell and the hurt that led me straight to this, Here’s to the trains I missed.
