Survive Chords by Dr. Dog

[Intro]
D  A

[Verse 1]
D
I was huddled in a doorway
A
Fighting off a trance
        D                 A
With my bag pulled to my chest
    D                 A
She asked me if I was waiting for something
           D
I said the answer one thousand times over was yes

[Pre-chorus]
F#m                   G
  Well here I am or a shadow of me
   D
Oh but deep down inside
              D
My heart runs free

[Verse 2]
D                         A
I was a used shoe salesman
          D                          A
And I was working the graveyard shift
      D                 A
I was listening for the bell on the door
D
when you walk in
D                                A
I was living in the weeds somewheres
          D                                A
And I was breathing through a straw in the swamp
          D              A      D
And I was gasping for air wondering what it was for

[Chorus]
F#m                             G
  But I've a child now and she's better than me
   D                               D
But deep down inside, I hope she makes the same mistakes as me
F#m                              G
  But sometimes love is all it's supposed to be
             D                         G
But it could break you, remember, take care of your heart
    E            A               D                A
And cry, oh and somehow we'll survive another day

[Verse 3]
   D                  A
By picking up our feet
D                             A                      D
I was wandering around in the streets somewheres outside of Eden
D                           A
She came down and let me in
         D                       A
And then she left for the light
          D                          A
And I was creeping through, through the brush and the shadows
           D             A
Man, I was scared for my life

[Chorus]
F#m                             G
  But I am saved now, somebody died for my sins
        D
And I'm so glad, it wasn't me
F#m                           G
  Sometimes love's not such a crazy thing,
             D                         G
But it could break you, remember, take care of your heart
    E           A        F#m      D               A
And cry, oh and somehow we'll survive another day
   D                    A
Oh just for another day
      D             A
Not by walking away
D
Now stay

[Chorus]
F#m                             G
  But sometimes love is all it's supposed to be
             D                         G
But it could break you, remember, take care of your heart
    E           A       F#m        D
And cry, oh and somehow we'll survive another day
D                 A
Just one other day
