 FIVE GALLON TEAR 
 Aaron Tippin 
 (Linde) 
 Album: Stars And Stripes 
 Submitted by: Christopher R. 
 October 8, 2003 
  
 Note: This song is 90% bar chords, and there's not  
 really away around them. 
  
 Intro:  (F)  (F)  (F)  (F) 
  
 (F) We were all drinking at (Bb) Marge's one (F) night 
 When an old cowboy (C) came through the (F) door 
 He took a few shaky steps 
 Then he (Bb) started to (F) moan 
 And he keeled over (C) right on the fl(F)oor 
 Doc came on over, took his (Bb) stethoscope (F) out 
 He listened and he (C) looked in his (F) eyes 
 He said, "boys, stick around 
 I just (Bb) might need your (F) help 
 I'm afraid this will (C) be a long (F) night" 
  
 Cause, there's a (Bb) five gallon tear, a (F) five gallon tear 
 Lodged in this (C) poor old boy's (F) heart 
 By the (Bb) look in his eyes he (F) ain't cried in (Bb) years 
 And he's re(F)taining a (C) five gallon (F) tear 
  
 --Key Change-- 
  
 Doc (F#) wrote a prescr i ption to in(B)duce him to (F#) cry 
 It was whiskey and (C#) sad country (F#) songs 
 We propped him up in a booth 
 Poured a (B) drink down his (F#) throat 
 Then we turned that old (C#) Wurlitzer (F#) on 
 Well he spluttered and he coughed 
 And he (B) hung down his (F#) head 
 As those lonely songs (C#) worked on his (F#) heart 
 When the memories started coming six (B) minutes a(F#)part 
 We laid him face (C#) up on the (F#) bar 
  
 Then a (B) five gallon tear, a (F#) five gallon tear 
 Slowly welled (C#) up in his (F#) eyes 
 (B) We all yelled "push" and we (F#) all gave a (B) cheer 
 When (F#) he cried that (C#) five gallon (F#) tear 
  
 Fiddle Solo 
  
 That (D#m) jar by the (C#) door, don't hold (B) pig feet no (F#) more 
 The (D#m) contents are (C#) sparkling (B) clear 
 That (D#m) liquid with(C#)in is not (B) moonshine or (F#) gin 
 It's a re(B)minder to everyone (C#) here 
  
 It's a (B) five gallon tear, a (F#) five gallon tear 
 Let this be a (C#) lesson to (F#) you 
 If you (B) sorrow inside for (F#) too many (B) years 
 Then (F#) you'll cry the (C#) five gallon (F#) tear (B) 
  
 Buddy (F#) you'll cr(C#)y (B) (C#) 
 Buddy, (F#) you'll cry a (C#) five gallon (F#) tear...

Great tab. A note about the barre chords...you could capo I
and play E for F, A for Bb, and B for C, and then play F for F#, C for C#, Bb for B, and Dm for D#m. Don't know if that goes along with the
record, but it fits this tab. Sounds good either way, to me.
