Bb
Every afternoon at five o'clock
Eb           Bb
I forget all about you
Bb
There ain't nothin' 'bout this honky-tonk
Eb                 F
To remind me we're through
              Eb
And I can put off going back
            F                           Bb
To that ol' empty house you swore you'd never leave
         Cm
From the loneliness you handed me
F                 Bb
I can get a brief reprieve
                Eb
From here until closing time
F                      Bb
It won't matter you're gone
      Gm          Cm
I can fill up my emptiness Eb F Maybe make it on my own Eb From now til they lock the doors F Bb Gm Put the chairs up and sweep the floors Cm You won't even cross my mind F Eb Bb F From here until closing time Bb Well the good old days are good and gone Eb Bb Since you left without me Bb If I could figure out where we went wrong Eb F Then maybe I'd be free Eb From these ties that bind my foolish heart F Bb And just won't let me start my life again Cm Then I wouldn't need this lonesome bar F Bb Where I come to pretend Eb From here until closing time F Bb It won't matter you're gone Gm Cm Your memory won't break my heart Eb F I can make it on my own Eb From now til they lock the doors F Bb Gm Put the chairs up and sweep the floors Cm You won't even cross my mind F Eb Bb F From here until closing time Bb Every afternoon at five o'clock Eb Bb I forget all about you From Radney Foster "Del Rio Texas 1959" Arista Records 1992 Polygram Intl/BMG Music
