BARTENDER BLUES

James Taylor

 AA7
              Now I'm just a bartender
 DBm7
              And I don't like my work
 EAEF#m7E/G#
              But I don't mind the money at all   
 AA7
              I see lots of sad faces
 DBm7
              And lots of bad cases
 EAEF#m7E/G#
              Of folks with their backs to the wall   
 AA7DBm7
              Chorus:  But I need four walls around me to hold my life
 EAEF#m7E/G#
                       To keep me from going a-stray  
 AA7DBm7
                       And a honky-tonk angel to hold me tight 
 EAEF#m7E/G#
                       To keep me from slipping away   
 AA7
              I can light up your smokes
 DBm7
              I can laugh at your jokes
 EAEF#m7E/G#
              I can watch you fall down on your knees   
 AA7
              I can close down this bar
 DBm7
              I can gas up my car
 EAEF#m7E/G#
              I can pack up and mail in my key   
Chorus:
 AA7
              Now, the smoke fills the air
 DBm7
              In this honky-tonk bar
 EAEF#m7E/G#
              And I'm thinking 'bout where I'd rather be   
 AA7
              But I burned all my bridges
 DBm7
              I sank all my ships
 EAEF#m7E/G#
              And I'm stranded at the edge of the sea   
Chorus:
