David Allan Coe - Spotlight
Capo 1

G           D           G
I can't see nothin' but Spotlights
C                          G
Spotlights see nothin' but me
All of my music is lonely
     A                         D
Yeah all of my heartaches were free
G                D                  G
Don't waste your time or your flash bulbs
C                   G
Too many heroes are dead
C                       G    Em
You like to live in the city
A                          D
Yeah, I like to live in my head.

Chorus:
C        D              G
Somebody shoot out that Spotlight
C                            G
Spotlights ain't nothin' but jive
Roll me a smoke, and give me some coke
A                  D
Treat me like I am alive
G            D          G
Tell all the ladies I'm single
C                            G
Tell lone star beer that I'm dry
C                     G      Em
Everyone's lyin' bout livin'
D          C         G
Everyone’s livin’ a lie.

G           D           G
I spend my night times in mournin'
C                          G
I spend my morning's alone
                                 Em
You spent your money to see me tonight
A                              D
Yeah, I spent all mine gettin' stoned.


G                D          G
Now that they're both kinda busted
C                     G
Doesn't it seem kinda strange
       C                      G             Em
That I lay down knowing we're two of a kind
    A                            D
And you'll leave here knowing my name.
Chorus:

C                     G      Em
Everyone's lyin' bout livin'
D            C        G
I'm tired of livin' a lie.
