     D
It's napkin numbers from a barroom queen
     Bm
That leads to paper roses and dime store rings
  G                             D
A match made at the Midnight Rodeo
         D
It's an angel sent straight from town
   Bm
To bring this old cowboy down
G                      G/F#                 A
Off my high horse that I've been riding too long


Chorus:
      G                 
Yeah, I've been looking for a lifetime stand
D
Down at the neon promised land
    Em 
But no angel waiting at the pearly gate
       G
Just a cover charge and ten minute wait
        D
Just to go inside and drink all alone
Bm  
Dance with a woman, try to take her home
      G                         E7  
Cause I've been spending all my time
              G               A              D  
Lookin' for a lifetime stand, one night at a time


It's make-up promises and lipstick lies
That hide the little things but can't disguise
In her eyes a shadow of the truth
I was dressed for love in a silver belly hat
She came like this and left like that
It doesn't add up but I was counting on someone new

Chorus


Bridge:
         G             A
Well I'm just a single thirty-something man
Bm                              G
Coupled with all the hope I can stand
G                 A            Bm  
I've got a half a mind to go insane
        G                   A
But you never know what you never know
   Bm                            G
So I’ll just keep on dancin' and holdin' on
G                           A     G  A
Could be two steps from the pain

Chorus
