Old Red Eyes Is Back  Beautiful South

[G]                                     
Old Red eyes is back

[A7]               [C]                 [G]     
Red from the night before the night before

[G]                 [A7]                 [C]  [G] 
Walked into the wrong bar walked into a door


              [G]                       
Old Red's in town

      [A7]                [C]              [G] 
And sitting late at night he doesn't make a sound

[G]            [A7]                [C]        [G] 
Just adding to the wrinkles on his deadly frown


              [G]                 [A7]     [C] [G] 
They're only red from all the tears that I should've shed

              [G]                 [A7]     [C] [G] 
They're only red from all the women that I could've wed

             [G]                [A7]       [C] [G] 
So when you look into these eyes I hope you realise

                     [G]                
They could never be blue

[A7]                     [C]                
They could never be blue

[G]                     [G]                
They could never be blue

[A7]                     [C]      [G]          
They could never be blue


               [G]                      
Listen up Old Red

     [A7]              [C]                [G]  
You never listened to a word the doctor said

[G]            [A7]               [C]         [G] 
He told you if you drank another you'd be dead


                 [G]                    
Old Red eyes is back

       [A7]                 [C]            [G] 
His shoulders ache all over and his brain is sore

[G]            [A7]                 [C]       [G] 
He pours a drink and listens to his body thaw

              [G]                   [A7]   [C] [G] 
They're only red from all the thoughts unused inside my head

              [G]                  [A7]    [C] [G] 
They're only red from all the things I could have done instead

             [G]                [A7]       [C] [G] 
So when you look into these eyes I hope you realise

                     [G]                
They could never be blue

[A7]                     [C]                
They could never be blue

[G]                     [G]                
They could never be blue

[A7]                     [C]      [G]          
They could never be blue


[G]           [A7]                [C]  [G/B]       
Blue is a street without an end

[G]            [A7]           [C]   [G/B]          
Red is the colour of my hell

[G/D]            [A7]             [C]     [G/B]      
Blue is a greeting from a friend

[G/D]            [A7]       [C]       [G]          
Red is the color of farewell


            [G]                         
Old Red he died

     [A7]               [C]                [G] 
And every single landlord in the district cried

[G]           [A7]                 [C]        [G] 
An empty bottle of whisky laying by his side

   [G]            [A7]             [C]        [G] 
A lazy little tear running from each eye

                     [G]                
They could never be blue

[A7]                     [C]                
They could never be blue

[G]                     [G]                
They could never be blue

[A7]                     [C]      [G]          
They could never be blue
