Intro: D  G  D  G 
D                                                               G 
Rachel was a sweetheart with greek letters around her neck on a chain 
D                                                           G  
She wasn?t really my type, she was beautiful, and I?m kinda lame 
             Bm            Bm/A            G 
Her mind was closed like a liquor store on Sunday 
               Bm             Bm/A       G  
She?s tryin to make her ex boyfriend mad  
                D               A    
It?s kinda of a rebound, that?s OK 
      D                             G 
She?s married with a kid on the way 
        D                               A 
And I?m glad I didn?t stand in the way 
Of a good thing 
Shelby was a stripper and a damn good mechanic and a friend 
She used to pick me up in her 64 and take me places I?d never been 
She drank vodka on the rocks in a tall glass 
Chased with cocaine and her teenage girlfriends 
I couldn?t face her, that?s OK 
But now she?s living with a girl named Renee 
Last I heard she was techin? in ?Frisco 
She?s got a good thing 
Alice was a bartender at a place I used to play for a while 
Some of the girls didn?t like she?d get 20 dollar tips with a smile 
I used to talk to her, try to get in her head 
We?d just end up drunk in my bed 
I never knew her, that?s OK 
She?s in Vegas making 5 bills a day 
She said I wasn?t too much fun when I was sober 
And now she?s got a good thing 
So here?s to the lady who?s name it hurts me to say 
She?s the proverbial one that got away 
She said life is all a young girl has 
And I can?t find my  mine while living in yours 
I don?t blame her, that?s OK 
She?s married with a kid and a kid on the way 
And I?m glad I didn?t stand in the way 
Of a good thing
