SPIRIT OF A BOY, WISDOM OF A MAN    Randy Travis

Eb        Ab                Eb
He was sixteen, tender and tough
Eb                         Ab                   Bb        
She was too, and he'd do anything to prove his love
         Ab         Bb                Eb
With so much riding on the choice at hand
                 Ab          Bb        Eb 
The spirit of a boy or the wisdom of a man
Eb             Ab             Eb
Hearts caught fire, love ran wild
               Ab                                        Bb
She cried the day she called to say she was having his child
         Ab         Bb                Eb
With so much riding on the choice at hand
                 Ab          Bb        Eb
The spirit of a boy or the wisdom of a man
            Bb
There's a constant contradiction
            Ab                  Eb
What feels good and what feels right
Ab               Eb                            Bb
You live with decisions that you make in your life
Bb                                  Ab            Eb
And what steers your direction  Is hard to under-stand
                Ab          Bb         (Bb)   
The spirit of a boy or the wisdom of a man  go to lead
Bb                Ab          
Now he drives a diesel out of Dallas
         Eb               Bb
Hauling cars out to the coast
              Ab
It ain't the dream that he remembered
        Bb
Just a few short years ago
                   Ab                         Eb
But tonight at a truck stop while drinking a cup
        Ab     
The waitress grins and winks at him
     Eb                     Bb
And says my shift is almost up
         Ab         Bb                Eb
With so much riding on the choice at hand
                Ab          Bb         Eb
The spirit of a boy or the wisdom of a man
         Ab         Bb                Eb 
With so much riding on the choice at hand
                 Ab          Bb         Eb
The spirit of a boy or the wisdom of a man
