Chances Are

Album: Country Strong Soundtrack (2011)
  • Here's my grandpa's old Gibson
    And a girl of no importance
    A shot of whiskey sitting on the bar
    Yeah I used to give a damn, I used to try real hard
    But I'll give in tonight, chances are

    One foot on the narrow way
    And one foot on the ledge
    Sifting through the devil's lies
    From what the good book says
    If I'm goin' any where
    I'll probably go too far
    Probably away from you
    Chances are, chances are

    There's a lonely corner waiting
    To seats left for playing
    I'll tell her everything she wants to hear

    I'm not worse love this making
    I'm better at the breakin'
    A guy like me knows how to disappear

    One foot on the narrow way , and one foot on the ledge
    Sifting through the devil's lies, from what the good book says
    If I'm goin' any where
    I'll probably go too far
    Probably away from you
    Chances are, chances are

    Hold me like I mean it
    Say 'til you believe it
    And we'll see if we can fill an empty heart
    But I won't tell you what the chances are

    One foot on the narrow way , and one foot on the ledge
    Sifting through the devil's lies, from what the good book says
    If I'm goin' any where
    I'll probably go too far
    Probably away from you
    Chances are, chances are Writer/s: NATHAN CHAPMAN, LIZ ROSE, LORI MCKENNA
