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

In a bar in Toledo across from the depot
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
I’m hungry for laughter and here ever after
I’m after whatever the other life brings
In the mirror I saw him  I closely watch him
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
But he started shaking his big heart was breaking
He turned to the woman and said
You picked the fine time to leave me Lucille
Four hungry children and a crop in the field
I’ve had some bad time live through some sad times
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
I thought how he made him look small
     Am                          D7
From lights of the bar room to a rented hotel room
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
I couldn’t hold her the words that he told her
Kept coming back time after time
repeat chorus
