What Have You Got To Lose
Written and recorded by Tom T. Hall

C
Well I've been in some bars where they serve it in big silver
F
Goblets and pewter and brass
G7
I've been in some joints where they serve it in paper cups
C
And maybe an old water glass


But it's all the same in the old drinking game
F
When you drink and you try to forget
G7
One woman who loved you and another who didn't
C
And I ain't seen one winner yet

F
What have you got to lose
C
What have you got to lose
G7
Try women and booze and the cigarette blues
C
What have you got to lose


Well I've been in some towns with some high rollin' heavies
F
And I know some unknowns and stars
G7
The big equalizer is a good drink of liquor
C
When they all belly up to the bar


Some cry for fame some cry for money
F
And some people reach for the skies
G7
But when a honky tonk heart starts crying for a honky tonk
C
You can't get a tear in edgewise

Repeat #3


Now an old country boy just can't sit on the porch
F
And watch while the world's goin' by
G7
Now he's got to be part of some social endeavor
C
So he gets him a jug and he tries


He'll play that old jukebox and chase them old hides
F
Bout daylight come to in his room
G7
When that sun's comin' up he's bout half way to hell
C
About half way back home around noon

Repeat #3 x2
