Verse 1:
L[D]ow down leaving sun,i've done
Did everything that needs d[G]one
Woe is me,w[D]hy can't i see[B7]
I best [E7]be leaving well enough al[A]one
T[D]hem neon black nights,couldn't stay out of fights
Them keep a-huanting me memo[G]ries
There is one in every crowd,for c[D]rying out loud[B7]
Why was [E7]it always turning out be [A]me
W[D]here does it go,the good Lord only knows
It seems like it was just the other d[G]ay
I was down at Green Gables,ha[D]wking them tables[B7]
And gen[E7]erally blowing all my hard earned p[A]ay
P[D]iano rolled blues,danced holes in my shoes
There weren't another other way to [G]be
For loveable losers,no l[D]uck can't boozers[B7]
And ho[E7]nky tonk heroes like [A]me
