On The Back Row
Recorded by George Jones
written by Jerry Chestnut and Norris Wilson
Here I sit on the back row in a church down the street
Not to far from the place where we used to meet
C7 F
And to find me getting though to me you found someone to love
G7 C
But I'll go back to the place that I keep thinking of

It's not a fancy place just a tavern in the lonely part of town
G7 C
Where lonely people find someone that hopes to settle down
They tell me to go and I can't understand
G7 C
Here I sit on the back row while you wed another man

You'd never dream but after many years I may still be sitting there
With just a bottle and two glasses right next to your favorite chair
C7 F
All alone you might not give him and he might even tell you wrong
G7 C
There I'll sit in a tavern waiting for you all alone

Repeat #2
