[Chorus]
         C       G
No, the hard stuff is 
watching you leave me
Em7               D
Goodbye lightin' up 
a cloud of dust
        C    G
Yeah, the hard stuff, 
better believe me
   Em7               D   
Is one man's treasure in 
     C
another man's truck
         G         
And ain't a bottle 
  Em7
on the shelf
        D             
That burns worse than 
   C
the hurt like hell
         G
But knowing you 
don't need me
Em7             
Is got the hard 
    D       G   C   Em7
stuff going down easy
[Verse]
D                   G
I ain't ever had a sip 
of nothing
 C           
That ties my 
           Em7  D
stomach up in knots
             G       
Like seeing you with 
C
someone new
And at our 
  Em7  D
same old spots
I ain't ever 
   G
tasted nothing
C           Em7
Ever hit me this way
D            G
I can't put a fight
              C
It keeps me up all 
night
             Em7  
It hurts more the 
    D
next day
[Chorus]
      C       G
No, the hard stuff is 
watching you leave me
Em7                D
Goodbye lightin' up a 
cloud of dust
           C    G
Yeah, the hard stuff, 
better believe me

Is one man's 
        D    
treasure in

another 
man's truck

And ain't a bottle on 
the shelf

than 
    C
the hurt like hell
             G
