There weren't any lyrics online, so I had to listen myself. If you have any corrections 
for the parts I couldn't understand,a comment or email would be appreciated.

F
I took a walk down to Freddy's Bar

F
While my wife and kid were asleep

G
I used to go there almost every night

F
When I was young and free


F
Not that I'm unfairly constrained

F
Held against my will

G
But this is back when it didn't matter

F
What time I stayed out until


F                                            F
Now it matters, because my son gets me up at 5am each day

G                                                F
And you don't argue with someone who's got their finger in your eye


F
Freddy's has a backroom

F
To play music in, or to listen

G                                                  F
Buzzers on the wall beneath icing thick paint that dates back to prohibition


F                                                    F
Tin ceilings bear that wedding cake pattern that the stage lights interrupt

G                                                 F
Pair of TV's playing day-long video collages that Donald dreamed up


F
Donald runs the place

F
He gave me a shot on the way in the other night

G
He always does,and he always did

F
It's what makes Freddy's feel right


F                                              F
Whenever I'm on the fence, about whether that walk is just too far

G
I think about what night it is

F
And whether it's Donald's night at the bar


F
When they move the pool tables out of the way

F
And the TV's lose their glow

G
They start playing music in Freddy's Backroom

F
And the people start to show


F
You could be a sharp backup singer

F
Who smells like coconut

G
Or avant-garde Jersey Jazz trio

F
Who by day smells like Pizza Hut


F                                                             F
Everything outta that back room sounds like its coming out of an old tube radio

G
Either out by the curb or by the kitchen sink

F
And mean to play what Freddy's got


F
My favorite record cover, or one of em, anyway,

F
Is Jerry Jeff Walker

                               G
"It's a Good Night for Singin"

F
And the Backroom sorta reminds me of that cover


F
You got people laughing, people dancing

F
People with funny hats

G
Some in denim, some in leather

F
Or Fort Park Boy-high-low aristocrats(?)


F
Yeah, The back room reminds me of that cover

F
In every way, by and large

G
When I threw down that shot
                                F
I started thinking about how Freddy's is going to be a parking garage


F                                                                      F
Yep, someday soon there'll be something in the space that occupies the

bubbling fishtank

G                                              F
Maybe a tailpipe or a row of fluorescent lights


F
A styrofoam cup

               F
Or a pair of keys hanging from a Dickies belt-loop

G                                              F
Some fastfood trash, or maybe a staircase, or a bright yellow mazda coupe


F                                               F
Someday soon there'll be something in the place where Freddy himself is sure to show

G                                                           F
A wax statue at the end of the bar drinking Fontera like it was just opened 2 weeks ago


F
The Ram's skeleton above the bar in the powder blue wig

F
Or the dented paper towel dispenser

G
The pink ladies' room sign

                                F
And the naked man painting by Donald out near the exit


F
Maybe the garage will have showers for their workers

F                                              G
And a real naked man will fit right into that space

F
Maybe Freddy's prediction...


F
All it makes room for is songs like these

F
Sometimes there's no positive inner meaning

G
All it makes room for is songs like these

F
and "It's a Good Night for Singin" x2




Let's sing

F
They're gonna tear down Freddy's

F
They're gonna tear down Hank's saloon

G                                                 F
Like crickets under rocks, we're all gonna hop to Bennigan's backroom x4
