Justin Townes Earle is one of the most original and talented singer/song writers to come along in a long long time. I guess most people know this is Steve Earle's son (what a pool of talent...amazing!) Anyhow, as Justin remarked this is a song about knowing what's wrong and doing it anyway...I can relate :)

This song is played with a capo on the 4th fret.
The D9 cord can be played as an A7. I honestly don't know what chord he's playing but it looks like:

5th string 9th fret
4th string 8th fret
3rd string 9th fret
2nd string 9th fret
1st and 6th string not played
