Cumberland Gap
By Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit
Written By Jason Isbell
CD: The Nashville Sound (relasing 6/16/17)


Bm
There's an answer here, if I look hard enough
          Bm                  G     D       A       
There's a reason why I always reach for the harder stuff
             Bm
It wasn't my daddy's way, he was down in the mines all day
          Bm                         G    D   A   
I know he wanted more than mouths to feed and bills to pay

Chorus:
G                                      D      A  
Maybe the Cumberland Gap just swallows you whole
G                                      D      A
Maybe the Cumberland Gap just swallows you whole


I ain't cut out for war, unless I know what I'm fighting for
And there's nothing here but churches, bars, and grocery stores
Ain't much money in the old-time mandolin
So I cash my check and I drink 'til I'm on my ass again

Chorus 2:
Maybe the Cumberland Gap just swallows you whole
Maybe the Cumberland Gap just swallows you whole
Maybe the Cumberland Gap just swallows you whole

Bridge:
C                              D
Remember when we could see the mountain's peak
C                        D
The sparkle off the amphibole
C                   D
Like a giant golden eagle's beak
C                             A
Now they say no one wants the coal

I thought about moving away but what would my mama say
I'm all that she has left and I'm with her every day
As soon as the sun goes down, I find my way to the Mustang Lounge
And if you don't sit facing the window, you could be in any town

Chorus 3:
Maybe the Cumberland Gap just swallows you whole
Maybe the Cumberland Gap just swallows you whole
Maybe the Cumberland Gap just swallows you whole
Maybe the Cumberland Gap just swallows you whole
