Artist : Alan Jackson
Song : Gone Before You Met Me

[Intro] : E F#m E  F#m

[Verse 1] :
E       A          E
I had a dream last night
E               F#m            E
I was floating down that black water
E                A         E
Kick back on the Mississippi
E               F#m         E
On a raft with ol' Tom Sawyer
E               A               E
He got restless down around Memphis
E      F#m           
That's where he left me
E            A        E
Said I'm one rambling man
E          F#m            E
I was gone before you met me

E   A   E  E   F#m     E

E               A               E
And there I was back in my hometown
E           F#m        E
That's just how dreams go
E                       A        E
Thumb in the air wanted out of there
E        F#m     E
Heading my own road
E                               A        E
Well I hitched a ride with this beatnik guy
E          F#m            
Said looks like you read me
E         A          E
My name is Jack Kerouac
E             F#m         E
I was gone before you met me

[Chorus] :
              A             E
You got your homeboys, your hang-around-boys
B                  E                       
You fix that roof but your roots to the ground-boys
A                E
Pink house, the white fence
B                     B
Pretty little woman, two point five
A                  E
Kids, dang right, it's a good life
B                     E
With boys like me your bound to run the wild side
A                     B              F#     
Like the restless wind you'll never catch me
A                     E
I was gone before you met me

E   A   E   E   F#m   E (x2)

[Verse 2] :
E               A     E
And just before I awoke
E       F#m       E
I had a bad nightmare
E        A         E                F#m         E
I was on some lost highway and you were nowhere near
E                 A                E
Someone took your hand I wasn't that man
E         F#m           
Girl, it sure did hit me
E            A                E
I was cussing fate but it was too late
E         F#m             E
You were gone before you met me

B
Yeah, I smelled that coffee
B                                  A  G#m  F#m  E
I heard you singing in the kitchen
B                       B                               A  G#m  F#m  E
Walking in got a kiss, you said the sink still dripping
E                           F#m  E
Thank God I'm still driven

[Chorus] :
         A             E
You got your homeboys, your hang-around-boys
B                  E
You fix that sink but your roots to the ground-boys
A            E
Blue house, the white fence
B                   B
Sweet little woman, rocking that good
A                 E
Miss dang right, it's a fine life
B                  E
His restless heart found a heart I can call mine
A                     E              F#m
I was smart enough to let love catch me

[Outro] :
A                     B                F#m
So Tom and Jack just rambled on without me
A                            E      A  E
'Cause I was gone before you met me
E           F#m                 E
Gone gone, gone before you met me
E      F#m        E
Gone before you met me
