Chris Stapleton – Parachute Chords

No Capo

[Verse 1]
G
Street lights along the highway
D
Throwing shadows in the dark
Em
And the memories keep on turning
C
To the rhythm of a broken heart
[Chorus] G You only need a roof when it’s raining D You only need a fire when it’s cold Em You only need a drink when the whiskey C Is the only thing you have left to hold G Sun comes up and goes back down D And falling feels like flying till you hit the ground Em Say the word and I’ll be there for you C Baby, I will be your parachute [Verse 2] G There’s a song that I remember D I never learned to play Em And a lifetime of forgotten words C I never got to say
[Chorus] G You only need a roof when it’s raining D You only need a fire when it’s cold Em You only need a drink when the whiskey C Is the only thing you have left to hold G Sun comes up and goes back down D And falling feels like flying till you hit the ground Em Say the word and I’ll be there for you C Baby, I will be your parachute [Bridge] G D If you think you’re going down Em C Just know I will be around [Chorus] G You only need a roof when it’s raining D You only need a fire when it’s cold Em You only need a drink when the whiskey C Is the only thing you have left to hold G Sun comes up and goes back down D And falling feels like flying till you hit the ground Em Say the word and I’ll be there for you C Baby, I will be your parachute

Song Review

The play on words with this song is amazing. Parachute has always been a personal favorite of mine. Simply because it is a very personal song on which I can relate to. Well I know that doesn’t make me unique because lots of people have fallen deeply in love before. But I guess that’s the beauty of Chris Stapleton’s music, he sings it in a way that it almost feels like the song was written for you. I remember the first time that I heard this song on the radio and I literally dropped the mug that I was holding. Ahh good ol’ times lol. You can see the chord progression of this song has Mr. Stapleton written all over it. Should be a nice way to brush up on your chord transition skills.
