Dwight Yoakam
Dim Lights, Thick Smoke
From "3 Pears"
Tabbed by thatchadmiller (Twitter)


This is in F, but it's much easier to play in E and capo 1. I saw Dwight 
play it live and he uses a capo in E position, so there ya go!


For the guitar, play the boogie woogie blues bar chord style throughout,
and obviously use 7th's on most of this.


Capo 1

[Chorus]
E                                       A
Dim lights, thick smoke, and loud, loud music
         E                                   B
It's the only kind of life you'll ever understand
        E                                   A
Oh, dim lights, thick smoke, and loud, loud music
       E                      B          E
You'll never make a wife to a home lovin man


[Verse 1]
E                                           A
A home and little children, mean nothing to you
  E                                          B
A house filled with love or a husband that’s true
E                                                A
You'd rather have a drink with the first guy you meet
        E                          B             E
And the only home you know is that club down the street


[Chorus]
E                                       A
Dim lights, thick smoke, and loud, loud music
         E                                   B
It's the only kind of life you'll ever understand
        E                                   A
Oh, dim lights, thick smoke, and loud, loud music
       E                      B          E
You'll never make a wife to a home lovin man

[Verse 2]
  E                                    A
A drinking and dancing to a honky tonk band
         E                                                      B
When you left your loving family life back right back where you  ran
   E                                                    A
So go on and have your fun but you won't always look so smart
          E                                   B            E
When some day that lonely barroom breaks your honky-tonk heart


[Chorus]
E                                       A
Dim lights, thick smoke, and loud, loud music
         E                                   B
It's the only kind of life you'll ever understand
        E                                   A
Oh, dim lights, thick smoke, and loud, loud music
       E                      B          E
You'll never make a wife to a home lovin man
