Recorded by Randy Travis
Written by Kent M. Robbins and John Jarrard
[C]I just dropped in cause [G7]I could use a friend
And a [F]little bit of consolation
I’m [C]hangin’ by a thread from the [G7]southern end of my [F]rope
If you [C]really wanna know
I’ll [G7]do my best to [Am]explain my situa[F]tion
[D7]Maybe I can find the words if the [G7]tears don’t get me first
It’s kinda like [C]fallin’ from the sky when you’re [G7]up a mile high
And your [F]parachute won’t open
Kinda like [C]clingin’ to the bottom of the [G7]bottom
When the bottom [F]drops out
The [C]only way I [G7]know to say how bad [Am]her leavin’ [F]hurts
It’s kinda like a [C]heartache [G7] only [F]worse only [C]worse
It wasn’t my first [G7]brush with love but [F]this one was the deepest
Yeah [C]I’ve been blue but [G7]this time it’s closer to [F]black
[C]Swore I’d never get [G7]hurt again but [Am]here I am in [F]pieces
[D7]When this one broke my heart [G7]that was just the start
It’s kinda like [Dm]being cut open
Kinda like [C]being burned at the stake
Kinda like [Dm]drownin’ in the ocean
Knowin’ there’s [G7]no help on the way

Who is Randy Travis?
– Randy Bruce Traywick (born May 4, 1959), known professionally as Randy Travis, is an American country music and gospel music singer, songwriter, guitarist, and actor.Active from 1978 until being incapacitated by a stroke in 2013, he has recorded 20 studio albums and charted more than 50 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, including sixteen that reached the No. 1 position. Considered a pivotal figure in the history of country music, Travis broke through in the mid-1980s with the release of his album Storms of Life, which sold more than four million copies. The album established him as a major force in the neotraditional country movement. Travis followed up his successful debut with a string of platinum and multi-platinum albums. He is known for his distinctive baritone vocals, delivered in a traditional style that has made him a country music star since the 1980s.
By the mid-1990s, Travis saw a decline in his chart success. In 1997, he left Warner Bros. Records for DreamWorks Records and then for Word Records, where he began recording more Christian material. Although the career shift produced only one more number-one country hit “Three Wooden Crosses”, Travis went on to earn several Dove Awards, including Country Album of the Year five times. Since his stroke, which severely limited his singing and speaking ability, he has released archival recordings and made limited public appearances. In addition to his singing career, he pursued an acting career, appearing in numerous films and television series, including The Rainmaker (1997) with Matt Damon, Black Dog (1998) with Patrick Swayze, Texas Rangers (2001) with James Van Der Beek, National Treasure 2 (2007) and seven episodes of the Touched by an Angel television series.
Travis has sold over 25 million records and has won seven Grammy Awards, six CMA Awards, eleven ACM Awards, 10 AMA Awards, eight GMA Dove Awards, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2016, Travis was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
