Still Doing Time
recorded by George Jones                                     [3/4 time]
written by Michael P. Heeney and John E. Moffat

Has it been a year since the last time I’ve seen her
   F                        C
My God I could swear it was ten
And the ocean of liquor I drank to forget her
         D7                          G7
Is gonna kill me but I’ll drink till then
I’ve been living in hell with a bar for a cell
      C                      F
Still paying for my cheating crime
    C                      G7
And I’ve got a long way to go
Still doing time
C7          F
Still doing time in a honky tonk prison

Still doing time where a man ain't forgiven
My poor heart is breaking
But there’s no escaping
     C                       G7
Each morning I wake up and I find
Still doing time
Oh when you're caught cheating twice
It’s twenty to life in a place
Where the sun never shines
      C                                 G7
And tomorrow you’re gonna find me right here
Still doing time
Repeat #3
