[Intro]
C x 4

[Verse 1]
C      C      F                   C
Me and Willie played in a country band
F          C              G                       G
Seven long years together playing those one night stands
C               C                  F                    C
Used to say the booze and bars is going to wear him out
F          C             G               G
Hold On, a song he wrote tear your heart right out

[Verse 2]
C      C      F                   C
We traveled the northern route and from the Greate Lakes to Monreal
F          C              G                       G
Hitting all the honkytonks, I bet we played them all
C               C                  F                    C
Willie played to ease his soul and drank to ease his mind
F          C             G               G
I never understood how he played it so good while drinking himseld half blind. And you..

[Chorus]
F                G            Am
Wouldn't think a Man so weak ...    could be so 
F        Dm                Am
strong.... Take a crowd of rowdy drunks and 
G
hush them with a song And I'd 
C        F            G                      Am | G  F 
rather be singing my heart out in a dark and din|gy  bar
F             C               G
Hitting those high notes with Willie's sad guitar. And I'd 
C          F              G             Am   | G   F       
rather be singing a blues song singing  sweet and  high 
F                     C          G                C
Willie standing right by my side  playing country slide

[Solo]
C        F            G                      Am | G
F        C            G                      Am | G
F        C            

[Verse 3]
C      C      F                   C
Me and Willie watched a lot of dreams die young. 
F          C              G                       G
Plans we made how quick they fade, fumbling one by one.
C               C                  F                    C
Willie never let it bother him and if he did, it didn't show.
F          C             G               G
You know he had a way of letting go am king the blue times old. And you ...

[Chorus]
F                G            Am
Wouldn't think a Man so weak ...    could be so 
F        Dm                Am
strong.... Take a crowd of rowdy drunks and 
G
hush them with a song And I'd 
C        F            G                      Am | G  F 
rather be singing my heart out in a dark and din|gy  bar
F             C               G
Hitting those high notes with Willie's sad guitar. And I'd 
C          F              G             Am   | G   F       
rather be singing a blues song singing  sweet and  high 
F                     C          G                C
Willie standing right by my side  playing country slide

[Verse 4]
C      C      F                   C
I left Willie in a bar in Marietta
F          C              G                       G
Couldn't stand to watch the man I love drink himself to death. 
C               C                  F                    C
Now I'm working in Ottawa and I'm doing well I guess.
F          C             G               G
You know the good life don't look so good from behind a desk  And I'd 
C        F            G                      Am | G  F 
rather be singing my heart out in a dark and din|gy  bar
F             C               G
Hitting those high notes with Willie's sad guitar. And I'd 
C          F              G             Am   | G   F       
rather be singing a blues song singing  sweet and  high 
F                     C          G                C
Willie standing right by my side  playing country slide
