The Rock
By George Jones
C                                       F
When you wake up in the morning and you wonder
       C                                Am
Why no one's beside you where I usually lay
        C                                   F
And you think you hear the sound of distant thunder
                          C                         G7        C
Well that's just your old rock (just your old rock) a rolling away
C7      F
I was a rock standing strong for you
              C                       Am
For there was nothing that I wouldn't do
              C     Am             C
No matter the cost  I was ready to pay
Now you say I'm only holding you down
              C                          F
Like some old rock you've been dragging around
Yes I'm just your old rock (just your old rock)
    G7              C
But now I'm rolling away
                  C7            F
I'm rolling away  on a downhill grade
        C                                          G7
But I'm gonna come to rest side a mountain of love someday
        C                            F
Cause I finally understand if you're resting on shifting sand
             C                            G7        C
But even the rock (even the rock) will go a rolling away
Honey I was your rock (just your old rock)
    G7          C
Now I'm rolling away

I worked on these chords for quite a while and I'm still not certain they're exactly correct, so be prepared to make changes if you believe they need it. This classic is fun to play and sing, copy The Rock lyrics and chords and enjoy the old song.
