Lone Star Hotel
By Guy Clark
Written by Guy Clark
Album: The South Coast Of Texas (1981)
Tabbed by Larry Mofle

Capo 2

    G                       C             G
The Lone Star Hotel Café is nothing but a dive
    C                     G                           D
And Florence Smith showed up there, Lord every day at five
G                               C                G
Florence was a waitress, have I mentioned that before
C               G                D                 G 
Serving beer to strangers and to some she’d seen before
C                              F        C   
Florence used to ride a little Apaloosa mare
       C                                              G
in the barrel race at the rodeo she had that beehive hair
          C                           F               C  
There’s a picture of her on the wall, as you pay your check
F                     C            G              C     
Lord, didn’t she look good back in nineteen fifty six

I was lovin’ Florence and she was ignorin’ me
Florence had experience, it was the first time out for me
Lord, I tried to tell her but the only words I found
Were "Give me greasy enchiladas and a beer to wash it down"
Florence quit the Lone Star Hotel and never was seen again
And me, I quit west Texas and I ain’t been back since then
That was years ago, Lord, too many to recall
But I remember Florence and them pictures on the wall

So here’s to you west Texas, you old rodeo queen
How I miss your beer joints and your shuffle board machines
Here’s to you west Texas, how I miss the smell
Of greasy enchiladas at the old Lone Star Hotel
