Eight Ball Blues – Steve Goodman

[Intro]
G  D  C   G  D  C   G  D  C   Em
 
[Verse 1]
        G               D                   G               D    
Well I wish I had some memories   that I'd keep inside my trunk
C                E         Am    A7         D
I wish I had a nickel for every beer I've drunk
       G                D                   G                 D
And I wish I had me a sailing ship  that'd take me over the sea
C                E7            Am   A7        D
I wish I could talk you into coming home with me

[Chorus]
C                      E                      Am         E      Am
Is this the part where I came in  Well, I've heard this song before
C                                E          A7       D
Had a couple too many    but I think I can find the door
      G                  D
And I do not know your name my friend
         C                  G
But I've seen that face before
       G       D        C              G        D       C
Well I saw it in the Jail House   And I saw it in the war
        G    D     C           Em
And I saw it in my mirror   A couple of times before
                                                       
[Verse 2]
G                  D          G               D
I wish I was the Candyman   Sweet as I could be
C                  E                           Am      A7      D
In every town the ladies hang 'round   Just to get a taste of me
G                   D         G        D
I wish I was an opry star, or had me a PhD
C                  E7                  Am    A7     D
I wish I had the common sense  to be satisfied with me

[Chorus]
C                      E                      Am         E      Am
Is this the part where I came in  Well, I've heard this song before
C                                E          A7       D
Had a couple too many    but I think I can find the door
      G                  D
And I do not know your name my friend
         C                  G
But I've seen that face before
       G       D        C              G        D       C
Well I saw it in the Jail House   And I saw it in the war
        G    D     C           Em
And I saw it in my mirror   A couple of times before

[Verse 3]
    G                  D              G                D
I wish I had a magic pocket,  that'd keep all my money in
C                E               Am        A7      D
I wish I knew a good excuse for all of my mortal sins
           G               D               G                D      
Well they say to know the best in life, you gotta know the worst
C                   E                   Am        A7         D
I wish that I had been the clown, who thought up that one first


[Chorus]
C                      E                      Am         E      Am
Is this the part where I came in  Well, I've heard this song before
C                                E          A7       D
Had a couple too many    but I think I can find the door
      G                  D
And I do not know your name my friend
         C                  G
But I've seen that face before
       G       D        C              G        D       C
Well I saw it in the Jail House   And I saw it in the war
        G    D     C           Em
And I saw it in my mirror   A couple of times before

Let me tell you
   G     D        C
I saw it in the Jail House
        G           D      C
It was on the post office door
       G      D    C
And I saw it in my mirror
    Em
A couple of times before
               G      D      C
Good People I saw it in the jail house
    G     D      C
I saw it in the war
        G      D      C
Lord I saw it in the mirror ... Fade out
