E7     - 020100
F#7    - 242352
Bm     - X24432
Bm/A   - X04432

Memories and drinks don't mix too well
     D                                       G       E7
And jukebox records don't play those wedding bells
Lookin' at the world through the bottom of a glass
A                               D     A
All I see is a man who's fading fast

Tonight I need that woman again
D                                      G   E7
What I'd give for my baby to just walk in
Sit down beside me and say it's alright
A                                        D       A7
Take me home and make sweet love to me tonight

D              F#7          G          E7
But here I am again, mixin' misery and gin
             G                  A            D
Sittin' with all my friends and talkin' to myself
  G                      F#7               Bm    Bm/A      G
I look like I'm havin' a good time but any fo-o-o-o-l can tell
          D                                  G   A        D      A 
That this honky tonk Heaven really makes you f-e-e-l like hell

I light a lonely womans cigarette
    D                                         G    E7
And we start talkin' 'bout what we want to forget
Her life story and mine are the same
   A                                            D      A7
We both lost someone and only have ourselves to blame
