You Missed My Heart Chords

[Verse 1]
C             Am
Broke into her house.
                 F
Saw her sittin’ there,
                  F
Drinking coke and whiskey
                     C
in her bra and underwear.
               Am
Saw him in the kitchen,
                F
hangin’ up the phone.
                   F
I asked him nicely once
                        C
to pack his things and go.
                         Am
He gave her a reassuring look,
                       F
that said he wouldn’t leave.
                     F
But I asked him once more time
                             C
and this time pulled out my shiv.
                    Am
I struck him in the back
                     F
and I pulled it out slow,
                 F
Watched him fall down,
                       F
And as the morning sun rose,
             G
He looked at me and said:
 
 
[Chorus]
               C
You missed my heart,
               Am
you missed my heart.
           F
You got me good.
            G
I knew you would.
                  C
But you missed my heart,
               Am
you missed my heart.
              F
Were his last words,
           G
before he died.
 
 
[Verse 2]
C                Am
Looking out the window,
                F
up at the blue sky,
                 F
Listening to her scream,
                  C
listening to her cry.
             Am
A feeling of relief
              F
came over my soul.
                       F
I couldn’t take it any longer
            C
and I lost control.
                    Am
I chased her up the stairs
                        F
And I pinned her to the ground,
                        F
And underneath her whimpering,
                        C
I could hear the sirens sound.
                Am
I rattled off a list,
                     F
of all the things I missed
                             F
Like going to the movies with her
                       C
And the way she kissed me.
             Am
Driving into downtown Wheeling
                 F
and showing her off.
              F
Backyard barbecues
                     C
and reunions in the park.
                   Am
I said I missed her skin
                 F
and she started laughing
                                 F
And while I clenched down on her wrist
                         F
She said “That's quite a list.."
                           G
“But there’s one thing you missed.\
 
 
[Chorus]
              C
You missed my heart,
               Am
you missed my heart
               F
That’s quite a list,
                     G
but what you really missed,
              C
You missed my heart,
               Am
you missed my heart
               F
That’s quite a list,
                     G
but what you really missed.”
 
 
[Verse 3]
C                    Am
Running through the parking lots
                    F
Running through the fields
                F
Policemen on my back
                           C
Something hit my skull and cracked
                       Am
They dragged me off to jail,
                      F
set a million dollar bail
                       F
Where I tried to tie a noose,
                          C
but I failed and I broke loose
                               Am
Went racing through the prison yard,
                     F
Shot down by a tower guard
                 F
He got me in the shins
                     C
And he got me in the arms
                   Am
Strapped me in the gurney
                      F
Took me off to the infirmary
                              F
Where the priest read my last rites…
              F
And just before,
                G
everything went dark, I said:
 
 
[Chorus]
              C
"You missed my heart,
              Am
you missed my heart
           F
you got me good,
           G
I knew you would.
                   C
Said you missed my heart,
              Am
you missed my heart”
         F
And just before,
                G
everything went dark,
 
 
[Outro]
C                Am
The most poetic dream
                       F
came flowing like the sea
                F
Laying there my lifeblood,
                C
draining out of me
            Am
A childhood scene,
               F
night sky moon beams,
                F
Fishing with my friends
                     C
sitting in the wild reeds
             Am                   F
Watching the Ohio river flow at night
                F                     C
Waiting for the bullhead catfishes to bite
                   Am                 F           G  C
Downriver from the Moundsville prison graveyards…
                   Am                 F           G  C
Downriver from the Moundsville prison graveyards…
                   Am                 F           G  C
Downriver from the Moundsville prison graveyards…
                   Am                 F           G  C
Downriver from the Moundsville prison graveyards…
