Intro: G D Dsus C
G
Well the day it ends when the sun comes up
    D                        C
and starts when the sun goes down.
G
Out on the back roads and on the back streets
         D                C
of every farm and factory town.
Em                    D
There in the world of weekly wage,
G                          C
there's always a place out there,
        G             D             C            D            D
and the names and the faces are the same----everywhere.

Chorus:
	 G   		      D      C
Well the room is full, it's a Friday night,
   G           D            C
we all want to hear "Louie, Louie"
	    G                    D         C
It's been a long, hard day and a long hard life,
    G		   D		   C
and this is how we make it through it.
       Em		    D
It's a blue collar place, a red blooded crowd,
  G                     C
tonight everything's all right,
   G     D    C   pause
In honky-tonk Amer-----ica.


2x G D Dsus C
	  G
There's a flashing sign on a rain soaked street,
D     			  C
that lights up just about dark.
  G
A welcome beakon on a lost highway
            D                          C
when you're weary and when you've lost heart.
Em             D
Never say it's lonelyness,
     G			     C
it's only the drinks and the band,
    G		     D       C
but something brings us back here again,
    D
and again.

Chorus:
	 G		      D	     C
Well the room is full, it's a Friday night.
   G	       D           C
We all want to hear "Proud Mary."
            G                   D         C
It's been a long hard day and a long hard life,
      G           D          C
We've all got our crosses to carry.
       Em                   D
It's a blue collar place, a red blooded crowd,
  G                      C
Tonight everything is all right,
   G     D    C   PAUSE
In honky-tonk Amer-----ica.

1x G D Dsus C
Em            D
We talk about freedom alright,
    G	             C
But maybe some other time,
Em      C		    D
Tonight everybody's feeling fine-----------.

Chorus:
	 G                    D      C
Well the room is full, it's a Friday night.
   G		D	   C
We all want to hear "Wolly Bully"
	    G	      D		C
It's been a long hard day and a long hard life,
       G             D          C
Monday morning we'll all do our duty.
       Em		    D
It's a blue collar place, a red blooded crowd,
  G                     C
tonight every things all right,
   G     D    C
in honky-tonk Amer-ica
G     D    C
honky-tonk Amer-ica
G     D    C
