Omaha The Only What If

Track Info

[Intro]
G Am F C G Am F C [Verse 1]
G Am F C I met a man going to Omaha G Am He told me some stories
F C
'bout his son-in-law
G He spoke just like your
Am F C
parents in a western drawl
G Am F C If you could even call it that G Am I told him how we'd hit the
F C
Iowa state fair
G Am F C I felt a little like an alien out there G Am F C It's crazy how much he resembled ya G Am F C Guess that's the comfort of middle America [Chorus]
G Am F And I know you're away and
C
out achieving something
G Am F Found your own saving grace
C
and she's cute as a button
G Am F And I'm still a basket case but
C
that's the life that I picked
G Am F You're not the one that got away,
C
you're just the only "What if?"
[Post-Chorus]
G Am F C (la la, la la, la la la) G Am F C (la la, la la, la la la) [Verse]
G Am F C He gave a smile as he waved goodbye G Am I've seen that same expression
F C
'bout a million times
G Am "Godspeed" he said to me
F C
with understanding eyes
G Am F C I never got to know his name G Am I watched him as
F C
he turned to walk away
G I thought about you
Am F C
all the way to baggage claim
G Am F C You can't ask fire to stick around in pouring rain G Am Guess that's either a blessing or
F C
an awful shame
[Chorus]
G Am F And I know you're away
C
and out achieving something
G Am F Found your own saving grace
C
and she's cute as a button
G Am F And I'm still a basket case but
C
that's the life that I picked
G Am F You're not the one that got away,
C
you're just the only "What if?"
[Post-Chorus]
G Am F C (la la, la la, la la la) G Am F C (la la, la la, la la la) [Bridge]
Em F Baby it was alright

for just a little bit
Am Romeo spinnin'
D7
lies to hand to Juliet
F C You had a blueprint for life,

I had a bucket list
D7 Am/E And I didn't fit, so
F Fm
I just made the best of it
[Chorus]
G Am F And I know you're away
C
and out achieving something
G Am F Found your own saving grace
C
and she's cute as a button
G Am F Aren't you glad I gave my place
C
to someone worthy of it?
G Am F You're not the one that got away,
C
you're just the only "What if?"
[Outro]
G Am F C (la la, la la, la la la) G Am F C (la la, la la, la la la) G Am F C (la la, la la, la la la) G Am F C (la la, la la, la la la)
