Old Red Eyes Is Back  The Beautiful South

[A7] [C] [G]  
Red from the night before the night before
[G] [A7] [C] [G] 
Walked into the wrong bar walked into a door
[G]  
Old Red's in town
[A7] [C] [G] 
And sitting late at night he doesn't make a sound
[G] [A7] [C] [G] 
Just adding to the wrinkles on his deadly frown
[G] [A7] [C] [G] 
They're only red from all the tears that I should've shed
[G] [A7] [C] [G] 
They're only red from all the women that I could've wed
[G] [A7] [C] [G] 
So when you look into these eyes I hope you realise
[G]  
They could never be blue
[A7] [C]  
They could never be blue
[G] [G]  
They could never be blue
[A7] [C] [G]  
They could never be blue
[G]  
Listen up Old Red
[A7] [C] [G]  
You never listened to a word the doctor said
[G] [A7] [C] [G] 
He told you if you drank another you'd be dead
[G]  
Old Red eyes is back
[A7] [C] [G] 
His shoulders ache all over and his brain is sore
[G] [A7] [C] [G] 
He pours a drink and listens to his body thaw
[G] [A7] [C] [G] 
They're only red from all the thoughts unused inside my head
[G] [A7] [C] [G] 
They're only red from all the things I could have done instead
[G] [A7] [C] [G] 
So when you look into these eyes I hope you realise
[G]  
They could never be blue
[A7] [C]  
They could never be blue
[G] [G]  
They could never be blue
[A7] [C] [G]  
They could never be blue
[G] [A7] [C] [G/B]  
Blue is a street without an end
[G] [A7] [C] [G/B]  
Red is the colour of my hell
[G/D] [A7] [C] [G/B]  
Blue is a greeting from a friend
[G/D] [A7] [C] [G]  
Red is the color of farewell
[G]  
Old Red he died
[A7] [C] [G] 
And every single landlord in the district cried
[G] [A7] [C] [G] 
An empty bottle of whisky laying by his side
[G] [A7] [C] [G] 
A lazy little tear running from each eye
[G]  
They could never be blue
[A7] [C]  
They could never be blue
[G] [G]  
They could never be blue
[A7] [C] [G]  
They could never be blue
