What Have You Got To Lose
By Tom T. Hall
Written by Gerry Goffin, Tom T. Hall & Carole King 
Album: Places I've Done Time (1978)
Tabbed by Larry Mofle

E                                                                                     A
Well, I've been in some bars where they serve it in big silver goblets and pewter and brass
     B7                                                                           E
I've been in some joints where they serve it in paper cups and maybe an old water glass
    E                                                                            A
But it's all the same in the old drinking game, when you drink and you try to forget
    B7                                                                     E
One woman who loved you and another who didn't and I ain't seen one winner yet

What have you got to lose
What have you got to lose
Try women and booze and the cigarette blues
B7                   E
What have you got to lose

Well I've been in some towns with some high rollin' heavies
And I know some unknowns and stars
The big equalizer is a good drink of liquor
When they all belly up to the bar

Some cry for fame some cry for money
And some people reach for the skies
But when a honky tonk heart starts crying for a honky tonk
You can't get a tear in edgewise


Now an old country boy just can't sit on the porch
And watch while the world's goin' by
Aw, he's got to be part of some social endeavor
So he gets him a jug and he tries

He'll play that old jukebox and chase them old hides
Bout daylight come to in his room
When that sun's comin' up he's bout half way to hell
About half way back home around noon
