Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


              [A]Now I'm just a bar[A7]tender
              And I [D]don't like my [Bm7]work
              But I d[E]on't mind the money at [A]all[E] [F#m7] [E/G#]
              I see l[A]ots of sad f[A7]aces
              And l[D]ots of bad [Bm7]cases
              Of [E]folks with their backs to the w[A]all[E] [F#m7] [E/G#]
              Chorus:  But I need [A]four walls a[A7]round me to [D]hold my [Bm7]life
                       To [E]keep me from going a-[A]stra[E]y[F#m7] [E/G#]
                       And a [A]honky-tonk an[A7]gel to h[D]old me tight[Bm7]
                       To [E]keep me from slipping [A]away[E] [F#m7] [E/G#]
              I can l[A]ight up your [A7]smokes
              I can l[D]augh at your [Bm7]jokes
              I can w[E]atch you fall down on your [A]knees[E] [F#m7] [E/G#]
              I can c[A]lose down this [A7]bar
              I can g[D]as up my[Bm7] car
              I can p[E]ack up and mail in my [A]key[E] [F#m7] [E/G#]
              Now, the [A]smoke fills the [A7]air
              In this [D]honky-tonk b[Bm7]ar
              And I'm t[E]hinking 'bout where I'd rather [A]be[E] [F#m7] [E/G#]
              But I b[A]urned all my b[A7]ridges
              I s[D]ank all my s[Bm7]hips
              And I'm s[E]tranded at the edge of the [A]sea[E] [F#m7] [E/G#]
