Gordon Lightfoot - I Used To Be A Country Singer


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[INTRO:] Am  Em  F  G

[VERSE 1:]
      C             F
I was sitting in my hotel room
G                   C
Strumming my old guitar 
    Am                     Em
Not much to do when you're far away
F                  G
Playing some smoky bar 



[VERSE 2:]
      C                F
I was feeling a little empty
    G                C
And feeling a little blue 
         Am               Em
When the maid came in and asked me
   F               G   F Em D 
If she could do my room


[VERSE 3:]
C             F
I put down my old guitar
    G             C
And she gave me a smile 
          Am                 Em
She had a crusty voice and a drinker's look 
        F              G
But she had a friendly style 


[VERSE 4:]
    C                  F
She dusted my room and made my bed
        G                   C
And she talked of days gone by 
    Am                Em
She spoke of when she wooed the men
  F                C
A tear came to her eye


[CHORUS:]
             G                        Am       G
And she said, "I used to be a country singer
                          Em   Am
I could sing a mean Patsy Cline___ 
   F                Em              Dm
My husband he could yodel like Wilf Carter 
F                 G                   C
Kitty Wells was a real good friend of mine"


[VERSE 5:]
    C                F
She told me that her husband died
        G           C
And her son was overseas 
        Am                       Em
I could tell by her eyes and her broken smile
        F                G
She was lonely just like me 


[VERSE 6:]
    C               F
She asked me if I'd listen to
  G                    C
A tape of when she was young 
             Am                Em
She said, "I can't sing now, I forget the words
       F               C
And my voice is almost gone"


[CHORUS:]
             G                        Am       G
And she said, "I used to be a country singer
                          Em   Am
I could sing a mean Patsy Cline___ 
   F                Em              Dm
My husband he could yodel like Wilf Carter 
F                 G                   C
Kitty Wells was a real good friend of mine"


[VERSE 7:]
                          F
Oh, I cried inside, but I couldn't tell
      G                  C
If it was for her or for me 
     Am                    Em
So I grabbed my axe and we sang a song
   F             G
In two part harmony 


[VERSE 8:]
     C                       F
Ever since that day when I'm feeling down
      G                  C
And I can't find a happy tune 
       Am                         Em
I just think of that maid and the feeling she gave
         F                C
When she came to clean my room


[CHORUS:]
             G                        Am       G
And she said, "I used to be a country singer
                          Em   Am
I could sing a mean Patsy Cline___ 
   F                Em              Dm
My husband he could yodel like Wilf Carter 
F                 G                   C
Kitty Wells was a real good friend of mine"


[CHORUS:]
G                        Am       G
 "I used to be a country singer
                          Em   Am
I could sing a mean Patsy Cline___ 
   F                Em              Dm
My husband he could yodel like Wilf Carter 
F                 G                   Am  G  Em
Kitty Wells was a real good friend of mine______
F                 G                   C
Kitty Wells was a real good friend of mine
