[Verse 1]
      C             G              F
 This bar has been my home away from her
 C          G             C   G
 Used to be, she was missing me
 C                G      F
 Now she's moving in with her best friend
            C           G                 C   G
 And I'm the only one who wants what used to be
 C                G            F
 I'm here because today I lost it all
 C               G               C   G
 I didn't want to drink at home alone
 C             G    F                         C
 I just can't believe all my hopes and dreams are falling
      G         C   G
Like a row of dominoes

[Chorus 1]
              C              G
 I thought the man behind the bar
     F            G
 Had heard it all before
 C                Am              G
 My story must have caught him by surprise
              Am          G
 Cause when he handed me my double
          F               C
 There were tears in his eyes
     F                   C
 You know you're in trouble
         G              C G F
 When the bartender cries

[Verse 2]
           C                       G            F
 He said, "Last night you swore you'd never drink again"
     C           G                C    G 
 I said, "Next time, I'm really gonna try
          C                G F
 So if she ever calls for me
            F               C
 Oh, you can finally tell her, "He ain't here"
    G           C   G
 And it won't be a lie

[Chorus 2]
              C             G
 I asked the man behind the bar
          F              G
 What he'd been crying for
           C                   Am             G
 He said, "That bottle used to be a friend of mine
       Am                      G 
 Now I've stopped drinking doubles
      F                   C
 But I pour them all of the time
         F               C
 Son, you know you're in trouble
        G              C
 When the bartender cries"

 F               G              C           Am    F
 As I saw my own reflection staring back at me, I knew
            F          G        (pause)
 Every single word he said was true

[Chorus 3]
 (no chord)        C             G
 Well, I told the man behind the bar
          F               G     C 
 I thought I'd seen it all before
               Am            G
 Till I saw the sadness in his eyes
            Am              G
 That's when I put down my double
     F              C
 And said my last goodbyes
               F              C
 'Cause you know you're in trouble
          G             Am
 When the bartender cries
       F                   C  G
 Oh, you know you're in trouble
                       C G F       C
 When the bartender cries
