Capo 0-1        LUCILLE

Time = 3/4

[Verse]

      A                               
In a bar in To-ledo ac-ross from the depot on a
                            E7     
bar stool she took off her ring
   Bm                        E7
I thought i'd get closer so I walked on over I
 Bm           E7        A       
sat down and asked her name
                                     
When the drinks finally hit her she said I'm no
                            A7       D       
quitter but I finally quit livin on dreams
     E7                                
I'm hungry for laughter and here ever after I'm
                                A
after what-ever the other life brings


[Verse]

 A                                     
In the mirror I saw him and I closely watched him I
                              E7       
thought how he looked out of place
         Bm                   E7               
He came to the woman who sat there be-side me he
 Bm            E7          A        
had a strange look on his face
                                 
The big hands were calloused he looked like a
                         A7            D       
mountain for a minute I thought I was dead
     E7                     
But he started shaking his big heart was
                                     A
breaking he turned to the woman and said


[Chorus]

 A                                     D
You picked a fine time to leave me Lu-cille
                                             A      
with four hungry children and a crop in the field
 D                                          
I've had some bad times lived through some sad times but
                              A
this time your hurting won't heal
              E7                       A       
you picked a fine time to leave me Lu-cille.


[Verse]

 A                                       
After he left us I ordered more whisky I thought how she'd
               E7      
made him look small
          Bm                          E7        
From the lights of the bar room to a rented ho-tel room we
 Bm             E7         A       
walked without talking at all
                                    
She was a beauty but when she came to me she
                   A7          D       
must have thought I'd lost my mind
 E7                                      
I could'nt hold her 'cos the words that told her kept
                        A
coming back time after time


[Chorus]

 A                                     D
You picked a fine time to leave me Lu-cille
                                             A      
with four hungry children and a crop in the field
 D                                          
I've had some bad times lived through some sad times but
                              A
this time your hurting won't heal
                E7                       A       
you picked a fine time to leave me Lu-cille.

It's in B-flat, not A. The 3rd verse is the "truck-driver's modulation" - in C.

These chords work fine. I use a capo on the first fret for the Intro, first two verses and first chorus and then quickly slide the capo to the third fret just before the third verse and just keep playing the same chords. It may not be 100% perfect but it sounds good enough to me and if you're just playing at a camp fire, family gathering or just in your living room, no-one will know the difference anyway. Just my opinion. I give it 5 stars.

Oh and I personally omit the Bm chord altogether and just run E straight through to the A each time. I don't bother with the 7th's either. Straight forward E, A & D sounds just as good when playing along with Kenny Rogers. No need to complicate life unnecessarily.
