Eric Church – Kill A Word Chords

No Capo
[Verse I]
G
If I could kill a word and watch it die
D
I'd poison "never," shoot goodbye
Em
Beat "regret" when I felt I had the nerve
C
Yeah, I'd pound "fear" to a pile of sand
G
Choke "lonely" out with my bare hands
D
I'd hang "hate" so that it can't be heard
Em                     C
If I could only kill a word

[Chorus]
G
I'd take "brokeness" out back
D
And break "heartbreak," stand there and laugh
Em
Right in its face while shootin' it the bird
C
I'd put "upset" down in its place
G
I'd squeeze the life out of "disgrace"
D
Lay "over" under six cold feet of dirt
Em
If I could only kill a word
C
If I could only kill a word

[Verse II]
G
Give me sticks, give stones
D
Bend my body, break my bones
Em Use staff and rod to turn me black and blue C Cause you can't unhear, you can't unsay G But if were up to me to change D I'd turn "lies" and "hate" to "love" and "truth" Em C If I could only kill a word
[Chorus] G I'd knock out "temptation"'s teeth D I'd sever "evil," let it bleed Em Then light up "wicked," stand and watch it burn C I'd take "vice" and I'd take "vile" G Tie 'em up there with "hostile" D Hang 'em high and leave 'em for the birds Em C If I could only kill a word G So give me sticks, give stones D Bend my body, break my bones Em Use staff and rod to turn me black and blue C Cause you can't unhear, you can't unsay G But if were up to me to change D I'd turn "lies" and "hate" to "love" and "truth" Em If I could only kill a word C If I could only kill a word
