Footlights  Merle Haggard

(Verse 1)
[G]I live the kinda life [C]most men only [G]dream of
I make my livin' writin' [D7]songs and singin' [G]them
But I'm forty-one years old and I ain't [C]got no place to go when it's [G]over
But I'll hide my age and make the stage
And [D7]try to kick the footlights out [G]again
(Verse 2)
I throw my old guitar across the[C] stage and then my bass-man takes the[G] ball
And the crowd goes nearly [D7]wild to see my guitar nearly [G]fall
After twenty years of pickin' we're [C]still alive and kickin' down the [G]wall
Tonight I'll kick the footlights out and [D7]walk away without a curtain [G]call
(Chorus)
To[C]night I'll kick the footlights out again
And try to hide the mood I'm really [G]in
And put on my old instamatic [D7]grin
Tonight I'll kick the footlights out [G]again
(Verse 3)
[G]I live the kinda life [C]most men only [G]dream of
I make my livin' writin' [D7]songs and singin' [G]them
But I'm forty-one years old and I ain't [C]got no place to go when it's [G]over
But I'll hide my age and make the stage
And [D7]try to kick the footlights out [G]again
