Lucille

Kenny Rogers

(In a moderate country 3/4)
capo 3

 G
In a bar in Toledo across from the depot,
 D7
on a barstool she took off her ring.
 AmD7AmD7
thought I'd get closer, so I walked on over,
 AmD7G
sat down and asked her her name.

 G
When the drinks fin'ly hit her, she said, "I'm no quitter,
 G7C
but I fin'ly quit living on dreams.
 D7
I'm hungry for laughter and here ever after,
 G
I'm after whatever the other life brings."

 G
In the mirror I saw him and I closely watched him,
 D7
I thought how he looked out of place.
 AmD7AmD7
He came to the woman who sat there beside me,
 AmD7G
he had a strange look on his face.

 G
his big hands were calloused, he looked like a mountain,
 G7C
for a minute I thought I was dead.
 D7
But he started shaking, his big heart was breaking,
 G
he turned to the woman and said:




 C
You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille,
 G
with four hungry children and crops in the field.
 C
 I've had some bad times, lived through some sad times,
 G
but this time your hurtin' won't heal.
 D7GA
You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille.   

 A
 After he left us I ordered more whiskey,
 E7
I thought how she made him look small.
 BmE7BmE7
From the lights of the barroom, to a rented hotel room,
 BmE7A
we walked without talking at all.

 A
 She was a beauty, but when she came to me,
 A7D
she must've thought I'd lost my mind;
 E7
 I couldn't hold her 'cause the words that he told her
 A
kept coming back time after time:

 D
You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille,
 A
with four hungry children and crops in the field.
 D
 I've had some bad times, lived through some sad times,
 A
but this time your hurtin' won't heal.
 E7A
You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille.
