Track 1 – Honky Tonk Man

Intro   G|----------------------------------------------------------|

Well I'm a honky tonk man and I can't seem to stop
                           A                                 E
I love to give the girls a whirl to the music of an old jukebox
But when my money's all gone, I'm on the telephone singing
     E                             E 
Hey, hey, mama can your daddy come home

    E                   B
Now I'm living wild and dangerously
    A                  E
But I've got plenty of company
When the moon comes up and the sun goes down
A                       E
I can't wait to see the lights of town



  E                        B
A pretty little girl and a jug of wine
     A                              E
Well that's what it takes to make a honky tonk time
With the jukebox moaning those honky tonk sounds
A                      E
I can't wait to lay my money down

[Chorus x2]

Track 2 – It Won’t Hurt

Intro:  D D  A    E    A

          A           D                        A                
It won't hurt when I fall down from this bar stool
          A             D             E                    
It won't hurt when I stumble in the street
          A                 D               A                
It won't hurt 'cause this whiskey eases misery
D D      A           E                 A          
Even whiskey cannot ease your hurtin' me

  A           D                  A            
Today I had another bout with sorrow
You know this time I almost won
          D                                A       
If this bottle would just hold out 'til tomorrow
                           E            A
I know that I would have sorrow on the run


Lead over Verse

  A                D            A            
Your memory comes back up with each sunrise
I reach up for the bottle and find it's gone
              D                                 A       
Yeah lord somewhere every night the whiskey leaves me
                         E          A
To face this cold cold world on my own


D D      A           E                 A          
Even whiskey cannot ease your hurtin' me

Track 3 – I’ll Be Gone

G               D
I watch as you take off your clothes
      C               G
And slip under the sheets
                           D            G
Then i turn and kick the boots off my feet
G                  D
Pull you close without a word
      C                  G
For there's no need to speak
                   D               G
Girl beauty like yours is hard to beat

But i'll be gone in the morning
        C                G
In the morning i'll be gone
Cause i'm not one for hangin' on
G                      C                   G
So please don't think you done somethin' wrong
                                D                   G
Cause in the morning when you wake you'll find me gone

G                        D
Just one look at those fiery eyes
C            G
Can almost erase
                 D        G
The memory of any others face
                           D           C            G
and the passion that's unleashed can cause me to misplace
                      D              G
I lose all track of time without a trace


G                       D
The sun intrudes and thrills
            C                 G
Across the room it's golden tracks
                        D                 G
I shake the dreams and now it's back to facts
G                      D            C            G
As i turn to leave i know you had what so many lack
              D                    G
And maybe someday it'll bring me back


Track 4 – South of Cincinnati

[Intro:] G C G

       G         B7       C     G
If you ever get south of Cincinnati
 C              D7             G   D7
Down where the dogwood trees grow
       G         B7           C     G
If you ever get south of the Mason Dixon
        C        D7           G   D7
To the home you left so long ago
       G         B7          C     G
If you ever get south of the Ohio River
 C          D7          G   D7
Down where Dixieland begins
       G         B7       C     G
If you ever get south of Cincinnati
C        D7     G    C   G
I’ll be yours again.

                G               C            G
She pulled the letter from the pages of her Bible
                      D7               G
And a rose pressed inside the Book of Luke
              G                      C               G
For fourteen years she’d write each day but keep it hidden
                           D7                   G
Refused to even speak his name, but still she wrote:


[Instrumental, same chords as chorus]

      G          C              G
At a cold grey apartment in Chicago
                      D7              G
A cigarette drowns inside a glass of gin
                                   C               G
He lies there drunk but it don’t matter drunk or sober
                                  D7                 G
He’ll never read the words that pride won’t let her send

     C        D7     G
Then I’ll be yours again

[Outro: G B7 C G C D7 G, G B7 C G C D7 G]

Track 5 – Bury Me (feat. Maria McKee)

Intro: A   D   E7   A

A        D               
Bury me along the Big Sandy,
A                        E7
Down in those blue gray mountains.
A                     D
Rest my soul in those hills of coal,
  A            E          A
Until this old earth does tremble.
          D                    A
Don't you mourn for me when my soul is free,
   D                E
No woman, don't you cry.
         A        D     
You just bury me along the Big Sandy,
A       E7            A
Under a blue Kentucky sky.

A                          D
This old town of sin, its about to do me in,
        A                   E7
I don't know how much I can stand.
        A                          D  
With my knees on the street and my heart at their feet,
    A         E                A
I'm forced to beg from Satan's hand.


INSTRUMENTAL A  D  A  E7  A  D  A  E  A  D  A  D  E  A  D  A  E  A

A                               D
When I came to this land, I was strong and I could stand,
        A                      E
Oh, but now I've somehow gone astray.
      A                          D
Yet I still see the truth in the teaching of my youth,
      A             E                  A
And I know that the Lord ain't turned away.


A       E7            A
Under a blue Kentucky sky.
A       E7            A
Under a blue Kentucky sky.

Track 6 - Guitars, Cadillacs
Girl, you taught me how to hurt real bad
And cry myself to sleep
And showed me how this town can shatter dreams

Another lesson 'bout a naive fool
Who came to Babylon

And found out that the pie
Don't taste so sweet

A                            E
Now it's guitars, cadillacs, hillbilly music
Lonely, lonely streets that I call home
Yea, my guitars, cadillacs, hillbilly music
The only things that keep me hangin' on


Ain't no glamour in this tinsle land
Of lost and wasted lives
Painful scars are all that's left of me

I wanna thank-you girl for teachin' me
Brand new ways to be cruel
Like findin' mine now I guess I'll just leave




Track 9 – Miner’s Prayer
 When the whistle blows each morning, and I
  D                           G
walk down in that cold dark mine.  I say a 
prayer for my dear savior please let me see 
the sunshine one more time.  

            C              G          C
  When oh when will it be over when will I
                    D              G         
lay these burdens down and when I die dear 
Lord in heaven please take my sole from 
beneath that cold dark ground.


I still greive for my poor brother and I 
       D                      G
still hear my dear ol mother cry. But late 

that night they came an told her he lost his 
  D                       G
life down in the vanleer mine. 



I have no shame I feel no sorrow if on this 
  D               G                          
earth not much I own I have a love for my 
sweet children an ol plow mule a shovel and 
a hoe.
