††††††† ††††G†††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††D

††† My God I could swear it was ten !

††††††††††††††††† D

††† And the ocean of liquor I drank to forget her

†††††††††††† †††††E7††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††A

††† is gonna kill me but Iíll drink till then.

††† Iíve been living in hell with a bar for a cell,

†††††††† ††D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††G

††† still paying for my cheating crime,

††††††† ††††††††††D††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††A††††††††††††††† †††D††††† †††- A

††† oh, and Iíve got a long way to go, still doing time.

 

††††††††††††††† D

Still doing time in a honky tonk prison,

D7††††††††† G

still doing time where a man has forgiven.

††††††† A††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††G

My poor heart is breaking, but thereís no escaping,

††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††A†††††††††† †††††††††D
