Have a whiskey and a cigarette first...

   E            A                         E
I wish I was in Austin

In some Chili Parlour Bar 
Drinkin' Mad Dog Margaritas  
           A                 E
And not carin' where you are

      E           A                  E
But here I sit in Dublin

Just rollin' cigarettes
Holdin' back and chokin' back
       A                   E
The shakes with every breath


Forgive me all my anger
Forgive me all my faults
There's no need to forgive me
For thinkin' what I though
I loved you from the git go
I'll love you till I die
I loved you on the Spanish steps
       A               E
The day you said goodbye

I am just a poor boy

Work's my middle name
If money was a reason
I would not be the same

I'll stand up and be counted

I'll face up to the truth
I'll walk away from trouble
But I can't walk away from you

(Repeat chorus)

I have been to Fort Worth

I have been to Spain
I have been to proud
To come in out of the rain

I have seen the David

I've seen the Mona Lisa too
I have heard Doc Watson
Play Columbus Stockade Blues

Repeat chorus and end with the first verse again.

The only thing that I see is that the b chord in the non - chorus part are a little too early. For instance in the first verse, it should be over the word "bar". Other than that it's solid.

Just one word is wrong: "some" in the first verse should be "the"; The Chili Parlor Bar was a specific place in Austin which Guy Clark was referring to when he wrote the song. Interestingly enough he also described the Mad Dog Margarita. It was cheap mescal with margarita mix and they were real cheap (naturally). When he played this live he used a 5-string cut capo at the 2nd fret leaving the E-6th open so it is played in "Drop E" tuning.
