(E) Well I was three days short of pullin out Kingsport
I was (A) headed down to Houston town
Had my (E) guitar packed in a burlap sack
For es(F#)cortin my country (B) sound
I (E) bypassed Jackson, bypassed Memphis
By the (A) time I got to Arkansas
I'da (E) sold my car and that black guitar
For (B) anything cool and (E) tall

So I (A) pulled up to a neon sign on (E) highway forty-nine
Shut the (A) engine down, took a look around and (B) then I stepped inside
I (E) asked that bouncer where I was he said (A) son your at Bills
(B) Honky tonk pickin, line dance kickin, razor back stickin, barbecue chicken
Laundromat bar and (E) grill

(E) Well I saw old Bill sittin at the bar 
With a (A) waitress and change machine
He was (E) throwin' out quarters to a waitress names Starr
When I (F#) asked him if I could (B) sing
He said, (E) son go ahead if you brought your guitar
Then he (A) pointed to the back stage door
He said, (E) we don't like original material
Un(B)less its been done be(E)fore

Well I (A) hit the stage like a big wheeled train 
Told the (E) boss man to play in 'C'
I played the (A) Tennessee Waltz, Kentucky Rain  
And the (B) one about the bird that's free
That (E) lead guitar was like a chainsaw that (A) fiddle like a power drill 
at Bill's
(B) Honky tonk pickin, line dance kickin, razor back stickin, barbecue chicken
Laundromat bar and (E) grill

Lead

(E) Well in the few short minutes I was up on stage 
Watched a Biker punch a cowboy's face
With a (E) perfect view I was witness to
The des(F#)truction of the whole damn (B) place
It was (E) long necked stems and white fringed hems
Flyin (A) out of that dodge saloon
And that me(E)chanical bull was a distant pull
To the (B) safest place in the (E) room

Well that (A) punch-drunk cowboy showed his wife  
That his (E) shirt was soaked in beer
She said, (A) calm down honey have another Lite 
Cause we can (B) wash the shirt right here
Then the (E) whole place stopped to thank me for (A) bookin my show at Bill's
(B) Honky tonk pickin, line dance kickin, razor back stickin, barbecue chicken
Laundromat bar and (E) grill
At Bill's (B) Honky tonk pickin, line dance kickin, razor back stickin, 
barbecue chicken
Laundromat bar and (E) grill

Some of the lyrics a little off the mark...
should read
"I saw a biker punch a cowboy's face"
"it was longneck stems and white french hems"

Try these lines instead:

"Had my guitar packed in a burlap sack
For esportin my country sound"

"Well I found old Bill sittin at the bar
With a pistol and change machine
He was dolin' out quarters to a waitress named Starr when I asked him if I could sing
He said, son go ahead if you brought your guitar then he pointed to the back stage door He said, we don't like original material the best has been done before"

"Well I hit the stage like a big mule train Told the house band to play in 'C'"

"Flyin out of that dark saloon"

"When that punch-drunk cowboy showed his wife that shirt soaked with beer
She said, calm down honey have another Lite
Cause we can wash your shirt right here"
