Same Old Song  Kris Kristofferson

K. Kristofferson
[D]I was just a young man, workin' steady in a good time band
Pickin' every single little [Bm]lick I could, [E]just to please the [A]man
[D]Harlan sang the lead for half and [G]we split up the [D]rest
Hangin' on thru the heavy times and [C]hopin' [G]for the [D]best
I [G]can't recall the [A]names of [A/G]all them [D]places that we played in
[A]All them squirrely party girls and [G]pills we used to [D]pop
[G]Hardly ever [A]sleepin' in [A/G]them [D]cheap motels we [Bm]stayed in
[E]Hopin' we could take it 'til we'd [A]make it to the top
And them [D]nights got a little bit [G]brighter
And them [A]bars got a little bit [D]better
And the sweet just a little bit [G]sweeter
But them [A]blues.....are still the still old [D]song
[E]Now we're stars shinin' on them prime time TV shows
Every stranger [C#m]knows our name and [F#]every little where we [B]go
[E]Findin' out the bottom ain't so [A]different from the [E]top
Just a few more friends you'd be [D]losin' [A]when you [E]drop
And I [A]left some of my [B]soul on [B/A]every [D]sweaty sheet that I could sleep on
[B]Gettin' just as close to any[A]body as I [D]could
I [A]don't regret a [B]single bet [B/A]I've [E]laid my body [C#m]down on
[F#]Ever since the first I had, the [B]worst I had was good
And them [E]nights get a little bit [A]brighter
And them [B]bars get a little bit [A]better
And the [E]sweet just a little bit [A]sweeter
But them [B]blues......well it's still the same old [E]song [D] [A] [E]
