Intro:

C  F  G  C

Chorus:

C
I've been around in Donkey Town
         F          C
Too long, Baby, too long
F               C
Checking out of Donkey Town
   G                 C
So long, so long, so long.


C
Her pretty eyes are pretty still
    F                      C
But Jim's got a quite of a squint, yeah
  
I dug my last check from out of the mine
      Am                     F
Now I feel like I've done my stint.
    C
Jim got an army pension
        F                        C
When he walked from the military court
F           C            G         C
Nobody ever mentions the medical report.



C
She does little things for me
    F                          C
She likes to get the both of us high, yeah

She says I am a tender-hearted man
      Am                            F
Prince Charming, yeah, sure, I'm the guy.
   C
He likes the wrecker's dogs on chains
       F                      C
And the smoke from the company fires
F                 C
Diesel oil in the trucks and cranes
        G               C
And the smell of burning tires.

C
I've been around in Donkey Town
         F          C
Too long, Baby, too long
F               C
Checking out of Donkey Town
   G                 C
So long, so long, so long.

C
There's a purple heart in a silver tin
      F             C
And a grey .45 in a draw, yeah

Most of the time you can drink with him
        Am                   F
But some other time he's just sore.
   C
On days when she says she can't think straight
   F                            C
Or feels like she's getting the jumps
F                       C
She'll go shoot off her .38
   G                    C
At cans at a Donkey Town dump.


C
It was Friday late and she crossed those legs
   F                      C
She told me flat out, she would, yeah

If I could pull up my trailer legs
        Am                     F
We could get away together for good.
  C
I sure wish her the best of luck
              F                    C
She's going to need it, thinking of Jim
F                         C
I don't like to leave her stuck
          G              C
But she's near as bad as him.


C
I've been around in Donkey Town
         F          C
Too long, Baby, too long
F               C
Checking out of Donkey Town
   G                 C
So long, so long, so long.
