Down Where The Drunkards Roll  Richard Thompson

Capo 3rd fret to play with record. Song is recorded in Bb, but written here in G
[G]See the boys out walking
The [D]boys who look so [G]fine
[C]Dressed up in green [G]velvet
[C]Their silver buckles [G]shine
[G]Soon they'll be bleary-eyed
[D]Under a keg of [C]wine

[C/G]Down where the drunkards [D]roll
[C/G]Down where the drunkards [D]roll

See that lover standing
Staring at the ground
He's looking for the real thing
Lies were all he found
You can get the real thing
It will only cost a pound

There goes a troubled woman
She dreams a troubled dream
She lives out on the highway
She keeps her money clean
Soon she'll be returning
To the place where she's the queen

You can be a gambler
Who never drew a hand
You can be a sailor
Who never left dry land
You can be lord Jesus
All the world will understand
