Starlight Lounge Review  Tommy Alverson

Capo 2
[Am]Joe plays the bar[C]tender, he knows [D]everybody's [Am]drink
[Am]He pours them out with [C]bad advice and [D]never stops to [Am]think
[Am]He only sells a [C]temporary [D]respite for the [Am]day
[Am]Still he holds a [C]major roll [D]in this little [Am]place
Angie is a waitress with a story of her own
She balances the drinks with two kids back at home
She will be in bed by 2a.m. and up again at 6
A single mom with no support she's learning all the tricks
[F]Me, I Chose a [G]ghostly glow the [Em]smoke hangs in the air
[F]Lonely souls [G]play lonely roles and [Em]one seems to care
You [F]stand their to [G]bar stage left and [C]say our [C/B]lines on [Am]queue
[F]It?s the nightily [Em]drama, the Starlight Lounge Re[Am]view
Jasmine is a working girl, she smiles at every man
Being here at 32 was never in her plan
Cocaine sent ambition and self respect right out the door
She was once daddy's little girl, but now she's just a whore
Old Charlies pushing 63, he's here each day at 5
He wouldn't be caught dead in here if his wife was still alive
He's got a daughter in Seattle and a son in San Antone
They think old Charlie?s doing fine living out here on his own
Joe brings me another drink and lights my cigarette
As I try hard to remember what I came here to forget
Angie unplugs the juke box, Jasmine walks in to the night
Old Charlie tips his hat and says I?ll see you back at 5
