Kill a Word
Written by Eric Church, Luke Dick & Jeff Hyde
Recorded by Eric Church

(No Capo)

Intro.:  (D) x 4 bars

If (Bm)I could kill a word and watch it die
I'd (D)poison "never," shoot "goodbye"
And (Bm)beat "regret" when I felt I had the (D)nerve
Yeah, (Bm)I'd pound "fear" to a pile of sand
Choke "(D)lonely" out with my bare hands
And (Bm)I'd hang "hate" so that it can't be (D)heard
If (Bm)I could (G)only kill a word (D)

(Bm)I'd take "brokeness" out back
And (D)break "heartbreak," stand there and laugh
Right (Bm)in its face while shootin' it the bird (D)
I'd (Bm)put "upset" down in its place
I'd (D)squeeze the life out of "disgrace"
Lay "(Bm)over" under six cold feet of dirt (D)
If (Bm)I could (G)only kill a word (D)

(Chorus)
Give me sticks, (Bm) give me stones
Bend my (G)body, break my bones
Use (D)staff and rod to turn me black and (A)blue
'Cause you (Bm)can't unhear, you can't unsay
But if (G)it were up to me to change
(D)I'd turn "lies" and "hate" to "love" and "truth" (A)
If (Bm)I could (G)only kill a word (D)

(Bm)I'd knock out "temptation"'s teeth
I'd (D)sever "evil," let it bleed
Then (Bm)light up "wicked," stand and watch it burn (D)
(Bm)I'd take "vice" and I'd take "vile"
(D)Tie 'em up there with "hostile"
(Bm)Hang 'em high and leave 'em for the birds (D)
If (Bm)I could (G)only kill a word (D)

(Chorus)
So give me sticks, (Bm) give me stones
Bend my (G)body, break my bones
Use (D)staff and rod to turn me black and (A)blue
'Cause you (Bm)can't unhear, you can't unsay
But if (G)it were up to me to change
(D)I'd turn "lies" and "hate" to "love" and "truth" (A)

If (Bm)I could (G)only kill a word (D)
If (Bm)I could (G)only --- kill a word (D) -----
