The Glass on the Bar  Lee Kernaghan

Lee Kernaghan - The Glass On The Bar
Capo 5
(The CD Key is in F if you want to transpose it back)
Three [C]bushman one morning rode [G]up to an Inn
And [Am]one of them called for [Em]drinks with a grin
They'd [F]only returned from a trip to the north
And [C]eager to greet them the [G]landlord came forth
He [Fmaj7]absently poured out a glass of three star
And [C]set down the drink with the [G]rest on the bar
There [C]that is for Harry he said and it's [G]queer
Tis' the [Am]very same glass he [Em]drank from last year
His [F]name's on the glass you can read it like print
He [C]scratched it himself with an [G]old piece of flint
I [Fmaj7]remember his drink it was always three star
He [C]set down the drink with the [G]rest on the [C]bar
He [C]looked at the horses and [G]counted but three
You were [Am]always together where's [Em]Harry cried he
Oh [F]sadly they looked at the glass as they said
You may [C]put it away for our [G]old mate is dead
But [Fmaj7]one glazing out over the ridges afar
Said we [C]owe him a drink leave the [G]glass on the [C]bar
Instr: C G Am C F
They [C]thought of the far away [G]grave on the plain
They [Am]thought of the comrade who'd [Em]not come again
They [F]lifted their glasses and sadly they said
We [C]drink to the name of our [G]old mate who's dead
And the [Fmaj7]sunlight streamed in and a light like a star
Seemed to [C]glow in the depth of the [G]glass on the bar
And [C]still in that shanty a [G]tumbler is seen
It st[Am]ands by the clock ever [Em]polished and clean
And [F]often the strangers will read as they pass
The [C]name of the bushman en[G]graved on the glass
And [Fmaj7]though on that shelf though a dozen there are
That [C]glass never stands with the [G]rest on the bar[C]
