            [Intro]
D    Bm7  G
 
 
[Verse 1]
       D
He was sittin' on a bar stool, drinkin' Bud heavy
     Bm7
At a tabletop after work
       A
Didn't have to ask his name 'cause I knew it already
       G
It was right there on his shirt
D                                   Bm7
Right under that "No Smoking" sign, he lit up a cigarette
A                                          G
He looked down at that new jukebox, took a sip and shook his head
G
And then he looked at me and said
 
 
[Chorus]
   D
"I sure could use a little Swinging Doors
Bm7
What I wouldn't give to hear "Walking The Floor" G "Ramblin' Man", "Tight Fittin' Jeans" A I'd drop a twenty in it if it would play "Jolene" D But there ain't no Dolly and there ain't no Hank Bm7 "No Paycheck", no man in black G D/F# Em7 Those days are gone and thеy ain't comin' back again A D Bm7 G There's no country for old men." [Verse 2] D Hе said, "Whatever happened to them songs about cheatin' Bm7 Or drinkin' off a broken heart? A Cowboy songs, two steps or a waltz G Twin fiddles and a steel guitar G Tell me, how'd we ever get this far?"
