Lyrics

Waiting on the Big One
Deanna Somerville
Capo 1st fret - Intro ? G, D, C, D, G, D, C

G D
On any given night a storm can break
C D
All our dreams wash away,
G D
We wake up to a clean slate
C
But the damage is done

G D
If the worst is what you grow to expect
C D
You march on, and get used to it
G D C
Live to rebuild and still you believe

You?ll have your day in the sun
G D C D
Waiting on the big one


CH:
G D C D
No, It hasn?t hit us yet
G D C D
We haven?t felt the worst of it
G D
Where you gonna go
C
When that day comes

Where will you run
G,D,C,D
Waiting on the big one

G D
We?ve come close a time or two
C D
Funny how you do what you gotta do
G D C
How will we know its over,

That our time is up
GDCD
Waiting on the big one


Repeat CH:

Bridge:
Em C G D
What don?t kill you makes you stronger
Em C D
But we can?t hold on much longer

Solo

Repeat CH:

G D C D
No, It hasn?t hit us yet
G D
Where you gonna go
C
When that day comes

Where will you run
