      SMOKE RINGS IN THE DARK    Gary Allan


    Bm            D                 Bm  
I wanna make you tell me what I've come to understand
          Em               G            Em             Bm 
You're a certain kind of woman I'm a different kind of man
      Bm                D              Bm   
I've tried to make you love me You've tried to find a spark
       Em                 G                    D         A       Bm    D   
Of a flame that burned somehow turned to the smoke rings in the dark
        Bm        D       Bm
The loneliness within me takes a heavy toll
          Em                 G                Em          Bm  
Cause it burns as slow as whiskey through an empty aching soul
          Bm              D     Bm 
And the night is like a dagger long and cold and sharp
      Em               G           Em                        Bm
As I sit here on the front steps blowing smoke rings in the dark
D   G     D              A          G                      D    A   
I-I-I I know I must be going cause love-ove-ove's already gone-one
Em               G               Bm          Em
All I'm taking with me are the pieces of my heart
Em                      Bm                 D
And all I'll leave are smoke rings in the dark
     Bm                   D           Bm 
The rain falls where it wants to The wind blows where it will
       Em                   G              Em                 Bm 
Every-thing on earth goes somewhere but I swear I'm standing still
Bm                 D               Bm
So I'm not gonna wake you I'll go easy on your heart
            Em                  G              Em                 Bm
I'll just touch your face and drift away like smoke rings in the dark
D   G     D              A           G                     D    A
I-I-I I know I must be going cause love-ove-ove's already gone-one
Em               G               Bm          Em
All I'm taking with me are the pieces of my heart
    Em                   Bm                D
And all I'll leave are smoke rings in the dark
