                             Bartender's Blues       Capo 1st fret
		               James Taylor

                    intro:  E  F#m7 E/G#
	      A                 A7
	      Now I'm just a bartender
                    D             Bm7
	      And I don't like my work
                     E                      A   E  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
                 E                              A   E  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
                          E                    A   E  F#m7 E/G#
		       To keep me from going a-stray
                             A            A7      D            Bm7
		       And a honky-tonk angel to hold me tight
                          E                     A    E  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
                     E                          A    E  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
                     E                     A   E  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
                       E                              A  E  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
                       E                          A  E  F#m7 E/G#
	      And I'm stranded at the edge of the sea

	      Chorus:
