[Verse 1]

G                      C             G
I live the kinda life  most men only dream of
                         D7                 G
I make my livin' writin' songs  and singin' them
                                        C                            G
But I'm forty-one years old and I ain't got no place to go when it's over
                          
But I'll hide my age and make the stage 
    D7                             G
And try to kick the footlights out again


[Verse 2] 

                                C                                    G
I throw my old guitar across the stage and then my bass-man takes the ball
                          D7                           G
And the crowd goes nearly wild to see my guitar nearly fall
                                    C                                G
After twenty years of pickin' we're still alive and kickin' down the wall
                                         D7                          G
Tonight I'll kick the footlights out and walk away without a curtain call


[Chorus]

  C
Tonight I'll kick the footlights out again
                                    G
And try to hide the mood I'm really in
                             D7
And put on my old instamatic grin
                                     G
Tonight I'll kick the footlights out again


[Verse 3]

G                      C             G
I live the kinda life  most men only dream of
                         D7                 G
I make my livin' writin' songs  and singin' them
                                        C                            G
But I'm forty-one years old and I ain't got no place to go when it's over
                          
But I'll hide my age and make the stage 
    D7                             G
And try to kick the footlights out again
