1.      I [G]WAS SITTING IN MIAMI POURING B[C]LENDED WHISKEY D[Am]OWN

        THE[G]RE WASN'T ANYONE AROUND BUT THI[C]S OLD MAN AND  M[Am]E
        THE G[D]UY WHO TENDED BAR WAS WATCHING IR[C]ONSIDES O[D]N  T[G]V
        UN[G]INVITED, HE SAT DOWN AND OP[C]ENED UP HIS M[Am]IND
        ON O[C]LD DOGS AND CH[G]ILDREN, AND WA[D]TERMELON W[G]INE.

2.      H[G]AVE YOU EVER HAD A DRINK OF WATER[C]MELLON WINE HE A[Am]SKED
        [Am]HE TOLD ME ALL [C]ABOUT IT THOUGH I D[D]IDN'T ANSWER  B[G]ACK
        [G]AIN'T BUT THREE THINGS IN LIFE THAT'S WORTH A [C]SOLITARY D[Am]IME
        THAT'S O[C]LD DOGS AND [G]CHILDREN, A[D]ND WATERMELON  W[G]INE.
3.      [G]HE SAID WOMEN THINK ABOUT THEMSELVES WHEN THEIR [C]MENFOLK AIN'T A[Am]ROUND

4.      [G]HE SAID OLD DOGS CARE ABOUT YOU EVEN W[C]HEN YOU MAKE MIS[Am]TAKES
        G[Am]OD BLESS LITTLE [C]CHILDREN WHILE THEY'RE S[D]TILL TOO YOUNG TO H[G]ATE

5.      [G]I HAD TO CATCH A PLANE UP TO [C]ATLANTA THE NEXT D[Am]AY

        [Am]OF O[C]LD DOGS AND C[G]HILDREN A[D]ND WATERMELLON W[G]INE.
