Motel Lights
By Cooder Graw

Intro chords:
F    C    G  
Bb   C    G

Little did she know
The ring wouldnít go
     C              G
With him out to the bar
G         Em
Newlyweds, barely out of bed
             C                         G
And now heís leaving in another girlís car
She shouldíve known
When she took him home
And stole him from another
     D                        C
Heíd do the same thing with a wedding ring
    G              Em
And leave it a lover
    C                        D
She thought she could change all of the things
     G               Em
That kept him out at night
         C                 D
But even gold canít hold a man
             C              D  
Who sold his home for motel lights

          F            C                  G 
Now these motel lights flicker outside my door
       F                    C               G 
Well I guess I deserve everything I get and more
         F          C          G
And that vacancy reminds me of what Iíve got in store
         F             	 C                  D
As these motel lights flicker outside my door

He sells a lie she still wants to buy
But that canít last for long
Who wants to wait at home all day
For a man who never wants to come home
She canít keep the faith at home all day
And her mind begins to stray
She starts to think about having a drink
At a little place down the way
She canít believe sheís about to leave the home
She tried to build
But she gets in a car with a man from the bar
Up to her neck in guilt
