[Intro] C [Verse 1] C F I woke up very early like I tend to do most days C Gathered up my clothes, my watch, G G7 and pocket knife C It would be almost an hour before F the sun would show it's face C G And I tried to be quiet so as not C to wake my wife C Turning on my phone was the F first mistake I made C My heart sunk when I read the G first headline C There had been another shooting and F this time not so far away C And a child who lost his life G C looked awful lot like mine

[Verse 2] C F I sat there in the dark for I don't know how long C Without the first idea of what G G7 to do C I walked into the kitchen and F turned the coffee maker on C And stood there feeling hopeless G C and staring at the moon C And when the house got lively, F I was working double time C Scrambling eggs and trying G G7 not to cry C F Jennifer was getting Isaac dressed and packed for school C I was wondering when God left G C and why he didn't say goodbye [Chorus] G G7 I should've spent the day with C my family Am Instead I tried and failed to F#/D work all day long G G#m6 Lord, I should have spent the Am day with my family F G On days like this, they alone make F G C me want to carry on [Verse 3] C F Throughout the day I kept hearing all the details C Though I didn't check in much G G7 but watch the news C Some tragedies you know, F they have no explanation C G And the word "everything" don't C cover what you lose C So I spend the whole day pacing back F and forth all by my lonesome C Questioning the point in G G7 trying to write a song C And it sure is hard to focus on F anything on all C And you can't get something right G C when everything feels wrong

[Chorus] G G7 C I should've spent the day with my family Am Instead I tried and failed to F#/D work all day long G G#m6 Lord, I should have spent the Am day with my family F G On days like this, they alone make F G C me want to carry on [Verse 4] C F By sundown I was worn out, no closer to understanding C The evil things that happen G G7 every day C F My wife and I shared a beer and talked about the future C G Agreeing on the fact that we would C have to find a way C Though sometimes I don't know how F this world continues turning C G What has happened will never be undone C But tomorrow I think I'll just try F to keep the day wide open C And as much as they will have me, G C be with people that I love
