Capo 1

              Bm      
I'm just four walls with a little paint, a picture here or there
        G
I got a Bible in my dresser, just in case somebody cares
Bm
I've been here forever, 1959
   G
My name is on the front door, they call me 205
    Bm
And man you can't imagine, the things that happen here
     G
I've seen my share of laughing and I've seen a lot of tears
Bm
Drug deals and last meals and love that seemed so real
  G
Until I saw the flash of those hundred dollar bills
           A
But let me tell you something crazy, that I'd never seen before
            G  
Starts with Johnny and Katie, first time they walked through my door


Chorus 1:
         Bm
It was a Friday night, late fall
        G                    A
After a high school football game
                      Bm
They snuck away, in a beat up Chevrolet
          Bm
Yeah they made love for the first time
          G                 A
Till that Carolina sun came up
                      G
That's where it all began
       A            Bm
At the Conway Motor Inn

           Bm
Well they lit a cigarette, and talked about their lives
       G
Said they were getting married, after graduation night
  Bm
It all seemed so perfect, but they didn't have a clue
G
That one be one of them would be right back here with someone new
Bm
Now fast forward four years, and that white picket fence
G
It ain't holding out what it should be keeping in
A
See, I see Katie on the weekends, when Johnny's working nights
G
And the man she's coming here with, ain't the man I recognize

Chorus 2:
Bm
It was a Friday night, late fall
         G              A
After a high school football game
               Bm
They snuck away, in her lover's Escalade

Yeah they made love for the first time
         G                A
Till Johnny's graveyard shift was up
                 G
Both livin' in sin
        A        Bm
At the Conway Motor Inn


Bridge:
Bm
Tonight Johnny ain't working, cause he's right here with me
       G  
With a pistol in his right hand, just waitin' on the key
   Bm
To turn in my door, and when they both walk in
   G
He lays that hammer down, and that's where this story ends


Chorus 3:
Bm
It was a Friday night, late fall
         G              A
After a high school football game
          Bm
They snuck away, in a beat up Chevrolet

Yeah they made love for the first time
     G            A
Till that Carolina sun came up
                  G 
That's where it all began

And that's where it all ends
A              Bm
At the Conway Motor Inn

At the Conway Motor Inn

Outro:

I've been here forever, 1959

My name is on the front door, they call me 205
