My drinking days are over
        [A]                  [E]
No more nights at the Carousel
My buddies say they're gonna miss me but
[E]               [B]
Who could ever tell
[A]                 [E]
I never knew what time it was
    [E]                 [A] 
Til closing time came round
[E]                    [B]
My drinking days are over
[A]                    [E]
But I'm still troublebound 

I used to hang at the Horseshoe
             [A]                      [E]
You'd see me spinning at the Broken Spoke
I'd take my gal to The Gaslight
[E]                       [B] 
We lived on whiskey and smoke
[A]                     [E] 
Don't know how it all started
[E]                      [A]
Didn't mean to hurt no one
[E]                        [B]               [E]
Some bad luck and what's done can't be undone 

Well it was way past midnight
Anetta hollered out last call
I turned around and Wranglin' Ron
Was headed for a brawl
I didn't know that other guy was a cop
I guess I didn't care
Sometime you gotta act like you gotta pair 


Steel solo

I got a ride out to Huntsville
I'll be there for a while
Staring out a mesh window
Mile after mile
I don't have any regrets, well
Maybe just a few
But a man's gonna do what he's gonna do

Slaid plays this song capo 3, then D, G, A. Listen once and you will figure it out. A simple and beautiful song by a terrific and substantially under-rated singer-songwriter.
