Waiting Tables – Don Henley

From "Cass County" (2015)

Intro:  Dsus4    D   Am   G

Verse 1:
G                     D              C
She grew up tall in a timber town, 
                                               G            C
Where trees were not the only things that were fallin' down
                                           Em              Am
The breezes through the pines were blowin' bittersweet
                              D                  G
They blew the papers down the dead-end street

Verse 2:
G                                    D                 C
She married a boy as soon as she got out of school
                          G              C
But he turned out to be a reckless fool
                               Em              Am
Gone are the days when she was worry-free
                                   D
Now she's a single mom; she's only twenty-three

Chorus 1:
          G                          Bm                  C
And she's waiting tables, she's just    waiting tables
                                                 Am              D
She's learned a lot about people - more than she   ever wanted to know
           G               Bm                    C
She's just waiting tables,    waiting tables
                              D                 G
Biding her time until there's somewhere else to go

Verse 3:
         G                                D
When her workin' day is done, she tallies up her tips
                C                              G
And she sighs, "Dear Lord above, there must be more than this."
    C                                 Em
Someday she'll see this misery in her    rear-view mirror
          Am                             D
But for today she'll find a way to get a-long right here

Chorus 2:
          G                          Bm                  C
And she's waiting tables, she's just    waiting tables
                                                 Am              D
She's learned a lot about people - more than she   ever wanted to know
           G               Bm                    C
She's just waiting tables,    waiting tables
                              D                 G
Biding her time until there's somewhere else to go

Bridge:
Bm9                            Em          Bm9                               Em
   One rainy night, a handsome man came in,   Said he was bound for parts un-known
Bm9                                 C              Am                          C      D
   They talked and talked until the moon went down,  But in the mornin' he was gone

Chorus 3:
G                         Bm               C                         Am
Waiting tables, she's just  waiting tables,  Another year or two and she'll be movin' on
           G                 Bm                 C
She's just   waiting tables,   waiting tables, 
                               D              G
Holding her own till somethin' better comes a-long
                           Bm                 C
Waiting tables, she's just   waiting tables,
                               D              G
Biding her time till somethin' better comes a-long
