The Highwomen Lyrics


            [Intro]
G   C   G   C


[Verse 1]
G                               Em
Daddy passed me his bottle of tequila
      Am
Said, "Time's running out
                    D
We're gonna have to pretend it's a margarita
G                                         Em
It's the order of things, it's the way it goes
          Am                         D
Don't you look at me, girl, like I'm already gone"


[Chorus]
C                             G
The day is close, it won't be long
D/F#                      C
Couple of cocktails and a song
                     Am
And don't you let me see you cry
             D
Don't you go grieving G C G C Not before I'm gone [Verse 2] G He had his lighter on a leash Em And menthols in his shirt pocket Am Said, "I'm going up with the smoke D There's no doin' anything to stop it G So take a deep breath Em Quit with the countdown Am You've always been your daddy's girl D Nothing's gonna change that now" [Chorus] C G The day is close, it won't be long D/F# C Couple of cocktails and a song Am And don't you let me see you cry D Don't you go grieving G G/F# Not before I'm gone [Bridge] Em Bm And then he stared down at his shoes C G G/F# Through the pink begonia's blue Em Bm Said, "Daddy, all I want is your silver belt buckle C And maybe your black Stetson hat" D And both of us laughed about that [Chorus] C G The day is close, it won't be long D/F# C Couple of cocktails and a song Am And don't you let me see you cry D Don't you go grieving G C G C Am Not before I die
