                             Bartender's Blues       Capo 1st fret
                               James Taylor

                    intro:  E7 F#m7 E/G#
              A                 A7
              Now I'm just a bartender
                    D             Bm7
              And I don't like my work
                     E7                     A   E7 F#m7 E/G#
              But I don't mind the money at all

                     A           A7
              I see lots of sad faces
                   D          Bm7
              And lots of bad cases
                 E7                             A   E7 F#m7 E/G#
              Of folks with their backs to the wall
                                  A           A7          D       Bm7
              Chorus:  But I need four walls around me to hold my life
                          E7                   A   E7 F#m7 E/G#
                       To keep me from going a-stray
                             A            A7      D            Bm7
                       And a honky-tonk angel to hold me tight
                          E7                    A    E7 F#m7 E/G#
                       To keep me from slipping away

                     A            A7
              I can light up your smokes
                     D            Bm7
              I can laugh at your jokes
                     E7                         A    E7 F#m7 E/G#
              I can watch you fall down on your knees
                     A              A7
              I can close down this bar
                     D       Bm7
              I can gas up my car
                     E7                    A   E7 F#m7 E/G#
              I can pack up and mail in my key


              Chorus:

                       A               A7
              Now, the smoke fills the air
                      D           Bm7
              In this honky-tonk bar
                       E7                             A  E7 F#m7 E/G#
              And I'm thinking 'bout where I'd rather be
                     A             A7
              But I burned all my bridges
                 D           Bm7
              I sank all my ships
                       E7                         A  E7 F#m7 E/G#
              And I'm stranded at the edge of the sea

              Chorus:
