Travis Tritt - "Sack Full of Stones"

Written by Travis Tritt/Marty Stuart


Intro: [E] [A] [E] [B7] [B7] [E]

[B7]I used to [E]be the kind of guy

I could laugh as well as [A]cry

With a [E]heart feather-soft and summer - [B7]warm

Since you've [E]left me I've been faced

With emptiness that's been re[A]placed

With a [E]heart that's hard and heavy as a [B7]sack full of [E]stones

[B7]I never [E]thought I'd ever see

The man my mirror is showing [A]me

Lord I [E]must have aged ten years

Since you've been [B7]gone

The longest [E]mile you'll ever crawl

Is the one after you [A]fall

Draggin' [E]round a heart that's heavy as a [B7]sack full of [E]stones


With the [A]world upon my shoulders

And my [E]feelings on my sleeve

Every time I [A]close my [E]eyes at night

All I [F#]do is watch you [B7]leave

But by [E]far the biggest curse of being left a[A]lone

Is draggin' a[E]round a heart that's heavy

as a [B7]sack full of [E]stones

[B7]Well I tried [E]turning to the bottle

But the bottle turned on [A]me

I've tried [E]everything

But nothing sets your memory [B7]free

I'm serving [E]life here in a prison

That we once called a [A]home

With a [E]heart that's cold and heavy as a [B7]sack full of [E]stones
