Capo 4th fret.(Key: E)
 
 
 
[Intro]
C   Am   C   G
 
 
[Verse 1]
C                               Em
Grandpa liked green alcohol and women way too much
     Am                        
That trailerpark small town bo 
    F
who never quite grew up
    C
The hitting and the cheating
    Em
The quitting and the leaving
    Am                             F
The apple didn't fall far from the tree
                         C
Guess it runs in the family
 
 
[Verse 2]
C                         Em
Daddy had a hard life, he grew up way too fast
Am                          F
Taking care of business, he shouldn't have
C
Generation to generation
Em
Same old shit, new iteration
   Am7                                         F
He yelled at me like they yelled at him in the Navy
                         C
Guess it runs in the family
 
 
[Chorus]
         F                      C
I've got daddy's temper and his heart of gold
       Am                   G
I'm an overspender and from what I'm told
         F                  C
I got my momma's lips and anxiety
        Am
All the things she tried to fix
       G                                C
So the irony is that it runs in the family
 
 
[Post-Chorus]
            Am
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do
            G     C
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do
      Am    G
Do-do-do-do-do
                   C
It runs in the family
 
 
[Verse 3]
C                                        Em
Momma thought that being perfect was the way 

to live her dreams
Am                            F
Then she married daddy so she tried to live through me
   C
If I could just be skinny
         Em
Buttoned up so prim and pretty
        Am                                 F
I could marry up, see the world she didn't see
                         C
Guess it runs in the family
 
 
[Chorus]
         F                      C
I've got daddy's temper and his heart of gold
       Am                   G
I'm an overspender and from what I'm told
         F                  C
I got my momma's lips and anxiety
        Am
All the things she tried to fix
       G                                C
So the irony is that it runs in the family
 
 
[Bridge]
        F
I might do it differently
           Em
'Cause I'm making my own way
  F
I learned the good from them
      G
But I learned from their mistakes
 
 
[Verse 4]
       C                               Em
So I'm fighting off my demons that are coming 

straight for me
       Am                  
I know it's hereditary but 
    F                   G
I'm trying to break free
                        C
From what runs in my family
 
 
[Outro]
            Am
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do
            C
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do
            G
Do-do-do-do-do
                   C
It runs in the family
            Am
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do
            C
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do
            G
Do-do-do-do-do
  .                 C
It runs in the family
