Capo 0-1        LUCILLE

Time = 3/4

     |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

|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

|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.

|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

|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.
