 In the recording Shelby will do this 4-line intro to the song - sing
 strongly strumming (1strum) each chord of the verse :
 
 There will come a day when they gather and stand around
 Revel in the glory and my body in the ground
 There will be disciples and a shroud that covers me
 I won't be afraid cause my soul has been set free
 
 Intro strum: Am- Em- Dm - 4x
 
 verse = Am Em Dm
 100 so miles from the Mobile River
 Lord I can't have her so I got to kill her
 Heaven's only days down the road
 A liquor store down on the county line
 Don't want all the land but what's next to mine
 Heaven's only days down the road
 
 Chorus: G7sus4
 I been insane since I was 9
 [Asus]Never was the cryin' but the fightin' kind
 [Dm]Oh yeah[Dmmaj7]
 [G7sus4]Load up the gun full of regret
 [Asus]I ain't even pulled the trigger yet
 [Dm]Oh yeah[Dmmaj7]
 
 verse = Am Em Dm
 Lost all the faith a man can own
 My hopes are empty and so is my soul
 Heaven's only days down the road
 Look at my fate in the paper now
 I want to put her back but I don't know how
 Heaven's only days down the road
 
 Chorus
 Nobody wants me down here no more
 Look at what I did to make then hate me for
 Oh yeah
 Can't blame the whiskey or my Mammy's ways
 2 little girls are better off this way
 Oh yeah.
 
 Play harder Am to Em to Dm Ohhhh ooooo Am, Em, Dm 4x
 
 Oh he[Am]aven's only days d[Em]own the road[Dm]
 Oh heaven's only days down the road.
 Oh heaven's only days down the road.
 
 Am to Em
 Down the road.
 Down the road.
 Down the road.
 
 (two gunshots- I don't think the song would be the same without the demonstrative sound
 at the end)
