Lyrics and chords

A                                                                                                        E7 

In a bar inToledo, across from the depot on a bar stool she took off her ring

Bm                                                   E7    Bm                E7          A

I thought i'd get closer, so I walked on over, I sat down and asked her name

                                                                                                             A7      D

When the drinks finally hit her, she said I'm no quitter but I finally quit livin on dreams

    E7                                                                                                            A

I'm hungry for laughter, and here ever after, I'm after whatever the other life brings

         A                                                                                                                  E7

In the mirror I saw him and I closely watched him, I thought how he looked out of place

Bm                                                   E7                 Bm                E7           A

He came to the woman who sat there beside me, he had a strange look on his face

                                                                                                                 A7                D

The big hands were calloused, he looked like a mountain for a minute, I thought I was dead

      E7                                                                                                                  A  // stop

But he started shaking, his big heart was breaking, he turned to the woman and said


                                                      D                                                                            A

You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille, with four hungry children and a crop in the field

D                                                                                                                                      A

I've had some bad times, lived through some sad times but this time your hurting won’t heal

                    E7                            A

You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille.

A                                                                                                                   E7

After he left us, I ordered more whisky, I thought how she'd made him look small

              Bm                                             E7                 Bm                 E7         A

From the lights of the bar room to a rented hotel room we walked without talking at all

                                                                                                             A7          D

She was a beauty but when she came to me, she must have thought I'd lost my mind

E7                                                                                                                    A  // stop

I could'nt hold her, 'cos the words that he told her kept coming back time after time

Refrain (2 x)
