Lucille
By Kenny Rogers   [3/4 time]
written by Roger Bowling and Hal Bynum

G
In a bar in Toledo across from the depot
                               D7
On a barstool she took off her ring
  Am                           D7
I thought I’d get closer  so I walked on over
  Am           D7        G
I sat down and asked her name
 
 
When the drink finally hit her she said I’m no quitter
                   G7        C
But I finally quit living on dreams
    D7
I’m hungry for laughter and here ever after
                                  G
I’m after whatever the other life brings
 
 
In the mirror I saw him  I closely watch him
                               D7
I thought how he looked out of place
        Am                   D7
He came to the woman who sat there beside me
   Am            D7          G
He had a strange look on his face
 
 
The big hands are callous  he looked like a mountain
               G7            C
For a minute I thought I was dead
    D7
But he started shaking his big heart was breaking
                           G
He turned to the woman and said
 
chorus
                                       C
You picked the fine time to leave me Lucille
                                       G
Four hungry children and a crop in the field
C
I’ve had some bad time live through some sad times
                                    G
But this time your hurting wouldn’t heal
             D7                      C
You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille
 
 
After he left us I ordered more whiskey
                               D7
I thought how he made him look small
     Am                          D7
From lights of the bar room to a rented hotel room
                             G
We walked without talking at all
 
 
She was a beauty but when she came to me
                      G7          C
She must have thought I’d lost my mind
D7
I couldn’t hold her the words that he told her
                            G
Kept coming back time after time
 
repeat chorus
