Intro:  |B   |B   |B   |  A Bb| 

Verse1:	B                          E
	Neon lights draw me like a moth to a flame
	B			    F#
	momma raised me right, that just leaves me to blame
	       B                          E7
	when I get a little sideways on a honky-tonk tear
	    B                                  F#                 B
	I'm old enough to know better, but I'm still too young to care

Verse2: Cowgirls with an attitude, boots and tight bluejeans
	take my mind off doin' right, and doin' other things
	when the weekend's gone, I won't have a dime to spare
	I'm old enough to know better, but I'm still too young to care

Chorus: E                               B
	Monday morning I wake up with a hammer in my hand
	the boss-man yelling something at me that I don't understand
	  B                                 E7
	I don't know how I got to work, but I sure know I'm there
	    B                                  F#
	I'm old enough to know better, but I'm still too young to care

Solo:	[over chorus]


Verse3: When the eagle flies on Friday, well he barely leaves the ground
	I've got just enough left to get dressed up, and head back to town
	boss said "Son, having all that fun won't get you anywhere"
	I'm old enough to know better, but I'm still too young to care


Coda:		B                              F# (stop)
