Bartender's Blues by George Jones (Simplified)

Transcribed by DWdrummer67.

Tuning: Standard

          A                       D            Bm7
Now I'm just a bartender… and I don't like my work
        E                      A
But I don't mind the money at all
       A                      D           Bm7       E                            A
I see lots of sad faces… and lots of bad cases of folks with their backs to the wall
                                  
Chorus:  
            A                       D      Bm7       E                    A 
But I need four walls around me to hold my life… to keep me from going a-stray
        A                   D      Bm7       E                     A
And a honky-tonk angel to hold me tight… to keep me from slipping away

        A                           D            Bm7   
I can light up your smokes… I can laugh at your jokes
        E                           A             
I can watch you fall down on your knees
        A                         D        Bm7             E                      A     
I can close down this bar… I can gas up my car. And I can pack up and mail in my key

Chorus:  
            A                       D      Bm7       E                    A 
But I need four walls around me to hold my life… to keep me from going a-stray
        A                   D      Bm7        E                     A
And a honky-tonk angel to hold me tight… to keep me from slipping away

Break: A, D, Bm7, E, A

           A                           D         Bm7  
Now, the smoke fills the air in this honkey-tonk bar
           E                            A
And I'm thinking 'bout where I'd rather be
        A                     D           Bm7              E                         A
But I burned all my bridges… sank all my ships, now I'm stranded at the edge of the sea

Chorus:  
              A                       D       Bm7      E                    A 
I still need four walls around me to hold my life… to keep me from going a-stray
              A                   D       Bm7            E                     A
I need some honky-tonk angels to hold me tight… that’ll keep me from slipping away…

This chart works fine although it appears George Jones modulates a half step on the last verse and chorus to Bb. I'll prob stick with A and not modulate. Thx
