I Came So Close To Failure
Recorded by Little Jimmy Dickens
Written by Kenneth E. Hunt and Jimmy Dickens

C G7 C
I came close so close to failure
G7 C C7
I came close to losing my home
I know the kids still love me and their mommy
G7 C
But I came so close to living alone

I felt small enough to drown in each teardrop
D7 G7
But big enough to admit I was wrong
Now I'm trying hard to be the man I oughta be
G7 C
But I came so close to living alone

G7 C
I didn't know just how much they meant to me
G7 C C7
I guess sometimes a man must be shown
When I think of what I've done a chill goes through me
G7 C
I came so close to living alone

Repeat #2
