Bartender Blues
recorded by George Jones  [3/4 time]
written by James Taylor

G                  G7
Well I'm just a bartender
      C             A7
And I don't like my work
      D7                      G 
But I don't mind the money at all
D7        G           G7
I've seen lots of sad faces
    C           A7
And lots of bad cases
   D7                            G    
Of folks with their backs to the wall

D7         G          G7        C          A7
But I need four walls around me to hold my life
   D7                 G      D7
To keep me from going astray
      G          G7       C       A7
And a honky tonk angel to hold me tight
   D7                    G
To keep me from slipping away

Well I can light up your smokes
      C             A7 
I can laugh at your jokes
      D7                          G
I can watch you fall down on your knees
D7    G               G7
I can close down this bar
   C             A7
Oh and gas up my car
    D7                           G
And I can pack up and mail in my keys

Repeat #2 
Now the smoke fills the air
   C               A7
Of this honky tonk bar
        D7                             G
And I'm thinking bout where I'd rather be
D7    G             G7  
But I burned all my bridges
    C             A7
And I sunk all my ships
    D7                              G
And I'm standing at the edge of the sea

Repeat #2
