   THE BACK OF YOUR HAND  Dwight Yoakam:

Intro  F  A#  F  C

             F
When you've give it up for gone
            A#
But you're still diggin into mine
     F
And you're starin at the window
          C
Sayin everything will be just fine
F
Keepin with the whole affair
     A#
Every word seems outta line
     F
No matter what angle you get
       C
It's polished till it shines


CHORUS:
        A#    C            F  C  Dm
Take a guess   where I stand
        A#    C         F
Pick a number  one or two
        A#   C                       F  C  Dm
Take a look   at the back of your hand
               A#     C              F
Just like you know it  you know me to

              F                           Bb            
When you say who the hell am I livin with    What just went down
F                                  C
Where did this come from  Why are all my colors faded brown
F                  Bb  
When did it change    what's with the rage 
F
Who's the dude with the extra roll
C    
With the verse the line the chapter the page

INTERLUDE:
Dm                C                 Dm           C
You think you're left without any place left to go
               Dm            C      Dm        C
Like you need one of those kisses long and slow
           Dm          C
At first glance ain't what it seems
                      Dm                 C
But there's but some things that I just know
              Dm                 C
Like you take two sugars with a splash of cream

ENDING:
        A#    C            F  C  Dm
Take a guess   where I stand
        A#    C         F
Pick a number  one or two
        A#   C                       F  C  Dm
Take a look   at the back of your hand
               A#     C             F
Just like you know it  you know me to
              A#     C              F
Yea like you know it   you know me to
               A#     C              F
Just like you know it   you know me to
