	Last night i dug your picture out from my old dresser drawer

	I set it on the table and i talked to it 'til four
                                                F
	I read some old love letters right up 'til the break of bone

         C/G
	Then i went to the jewelery and i found our wedding rings

                                              F
	I crossed this lonely bedroom of our recent broken home
                C/G                 G               C/G

	Exhuming things that better left alone
             C/G                      F
	I'm resurrecting memories of love that's dead and gone
                C/G                 G               C/G
	Yeah tonight i'm settlin' alone diggin' up bones

	And i went to the closet and i found some things in there

	Like that pretty neglige that i bought you to wear
                                               F
	And i recall how good you looked each time you had it on
                C/G                 G               C/G
	Yeah tonight i'm settlin' alone diggin' up bones


Chorus.
             C/G                      F
	I'm resurrecting memories of love that's dead and gone
                C/G                 G               C/G
	Yeah tonight i'm settlin' alone diggin' up bones

Song: The Storms of Life
Artist: Randy Travis

          D
There's a dirty piece of cardboard
     G
that reads Montgomery Ward
A                        D
taped across the window of my old Ford.
                                  G
A six-pack on the front seat and a box of chicken wings,
A                                                  D    D7
I'm dialin' 'cross the radio for a song that I can sing

G
I'd better change my wandrin ways,
D
I know I've seen my better days,
A                              D    D7
always gettin' high when I get low.
        G
Well, I left my soul out in the rain,
D
Lord, what a price I've had to pay.
A                                 D
The storms of life are washin' me away.


An old mail pouch, tobacco sign
fadin' on the barn,
bringin' back sweet memories of Mama's farm/
When love was just a country girl that lived on down the road.
Spoken: you know, she almost had me turned around,
but that was years ago.

I'd better change my wandrin ways,
I know I've seen my better days,
always gettin' high when I get low.
Well, I left my soul out in the rain,
Lord, what a price I've had to pay.
The storms of life are washin' me away.
Yeah, the storms of life are washin' me away.


Howard

	After all these years i can still hear grandpa laughin'
              A
	As he applied that barnyard remedy
            D
	He passed his wisdom down to me
             A                       E                     A

                                                                       E
	We were smoochin' on the front porch swing that night when he caught her
                   A
	We weren't expectin' him home until quarter past ten
                  D
	When the good Lord taught me that lesson again
             A                       E                     A

	It's just ordinary common sense to avoid that danger
             A                       E                     A

                                                       E
	And that cowboy saw you wink at her,she was a cutie
                      A
	The sound of jinglin' spurs caught me dead on a run
                D
	He was fit to be tied and you were under the gun
             A                       E                     A
	You don't reach for the honey without smokin' the hive


Chorus.

                A                       E                     A

About the artist behind Diggin Up Bones Chords:

Randy Travis (born Randy Bruce Traywick, May 4, 1959 in Marshville, North Carolina[1]) is an American multiple Grammy Award- and Dove Award-winning American country singer. Active since 1985, he has recorded more than a dozen studio albums to date, in addition to charting more than thirty singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, of which sixteen of those singles have reached Number One.

Considered a pivotal figure in the history of country music,[1] Travis broke through in the mid-1980s with the release of his album Storms of Life on Warner Bros. Records; the album, which sold more than three million copies, made Travis the first country music act in history to achieve multi-platinum status. It also established him as a neotraditionalist country act, and was followed by a string of several more platinum and multi-platinum albums throughout his career. Starting in the mid-1990s, however, Travis saw decline in his chart success. He left Warner Bros. in 1997 for DreamWorks Records; there, he would eventually switch his focus to gospel music, a switch which — despite earning him only one more country hit in the Number One "Three Wooden Crosses" — earned him several Dove Awards.

Travis, in addition to singing, holds several acting credits, starting with his television special Wind in the Wire in 1992. Since then, he has appeared in several movie and television roles, occasionally as himself.
