James Taylor Lyrics


            Capo 1st fret

                    intro:  E  F#m7 E/G#
	      A                 A7
	      Now I'm just a bartender
                    D             Bm7
	      And I don't like my work
                     E                      A   E  F#m7 E/G#
	      But I don't mind the money at all

                     A           A7
	      I see lots of sad faces
                   D          Bm7
	      And lots of bad cases
                 E                              A   E  F#m7 E/G#
	      Of folks with their backs to the wall
                                  A           A7          D       Bm7
	      Chorus:  But I need four walls around me to hold my life
                          E                    A   E  F#m7 E/G#
		       To keep me from going a-stray
                             A            A7      D            Bm7
		       And a honky-tonk angel to hold me tight
                          E                     A    E  F#m7 E/G#
		       To keep me from slipping away

A A7 I can light up your smokes D Bm7 I can laugh at your jokes E A E F#m7 E/G# I can watch you fall down on your knees A A7 I can close down this bar D Bm7 I can gas up my car E A E F#m7 E/G# I can pack up and mail in my key Chorus: A A7 Now, the smoke fills the air D Bm7 In this honky-tonk bar E A E F#m7 E/G# And I'm thinking 'bout where I'd rather be A A7 But I burned all my bridges D Bm7 I sank all my ships E A E F#m7 E/G# And I'm stranded at the edge of the sea Chorus:
