INTRO: A E A


#1.
A
I keep the radio on most all night long and 
                             G Abm7
listen to the songs they play.
A                                         E
Sometimes I hum, tap along with my thumb, listen 
       B          E
to the words they say.
      A
And I have to admit those yesterday hits take 
                  D
me back a year or two.
            A    E                    Gbm       D
I get those 1953 Dear John Honky Tonk Blues for you.
          A    E                    A
Get those 1953 Dear John Honky Tonk Blues.


CHORUS:
    E                                A      Gbm
And I need help when I hear 'No Help Wanted,' 
  E                                        A
rememberin' where we first heard 'Lovesick Blues.'
E                                    A    D
Old songs make me wonder what you're doing.
            A    E                    A    
I get those 1953 Dear John Honky Tonk Blues.



INTERLUDE: A D A E A



#2.
Gbm   A
Gonna play this song for Rollin' John's 'The Wild Side 
          G Abm7
Of Life.'
     Am                    Gbm        E            B
It's Rolly Polly, a golden oldie, for Carl and his brand 
    E
new wife.
         A                        E                A
Well, it makes me feel sad but it ain't half bad remembering 
             D
the things I do.
            A      E                    A          D
I get those 1953, 'Hey Joe,' 'Hop A Bop Blues' for you.
          A         E                A
Get those 1953 'Hey Joe,' 'Hop A Bop Blues.' 


CHORUS:
    E                                A      Gbm
And I need help when I hear 'No Help Wanted,' 
  E                                        A
rememberin' where we first heard 'Lovesick Blues.'
E                                    A    D
Old songs make me wonder what you're doing.
            A    E                    A          D
I get those 1953 Dear John Honky Tonk Blues, for you.
            A    E                    A          
I get those 1953 Dear John Honky Tonk Blues.
