Room 205
By Chase Rice 
Tabbed By Larry Mofle
5/19/2013


Capo 1

              Bm      
I'm just four walls with a little paint, a picture here or there
        G
I got a Bible in my dresser, just in case somebody cares
Bm
I've been here forever, 1959
   G
My name is on the front door, they call me 205
    Bm
And man you can't imagine, the things that happen here
     G
I've seen my share of laughing and I've seen a lot of tears
Bm
Drug deals and last meals and love that seemed so real
  G
Until I saw the flash of those hundred dollar bills
           A
But let me tell you something crazy, that I'd never seen before
            G  
Starts with Johnny and Katie, first time they walked through my door


Chorus 1:
         Bm
It was a Friday night, late fall
        G                    A
After a high school football game
                      Bm
They snuck away, in a beat up Chevrolet
          Bm
Yeah they made love for the first time
          G                 A
Till that Carolina sun came up
                      G
That's where it all began
       A            Bm
At the Conway Motor Inn


Well they lit a cigarette, and talked about their lives
Said they were getting married, after graduation night
It all seemed so perfect, but they didn't have a clue
That one be one of them would be right back here with someone new
Now fast forward four years, and that white picket fence
It ain't holding out what it should be keeping in
See, I see Katie on the weekends, when Johnny's working nights
And the man she's coming here with, ain't the man I recognize

Chorus 2:
It was a Friday night, late fall
After a high school football game
They snuck away, in her lover's Escalade
Yeah they made love for the first time
Till Johnny's graveyard shift was up
Both livin' in sin
At the Conway Motor Inn


Bridge:
Bm
Tonight Johnny ain't working, cause he's right here with me
       G  
With a pistol in his right hand, just waitin' on the key
   Bm
To turn in my door, and when they both walk in
   G
He lays that hammer down, and that's where this story ends


Chorus 3:
It was a Friday night, late fall
After a high school football game
They snuck away, in a beat up Chevrolet
Yeah they made love for the first time
Till that Carolina sun came up
That's where it all began
And that's where it all ends
At the Conway Motor Inn
At the Conway Motor Inn

Outro:
I've been here forever, 1959
My name is on the front door, they call me 205
