VERSE 1

G                     C             G              C
Old man on a barstool watching TV
     G                   Am   	                    C             G
He got up and came over to sit closer to me
             G                 C                G               C
He said you look familiar to someone I knew
       G                       Am                                 C               G
But when we were your age we were older than you
G                 C              G            C
Jimmy was twenty and I seventeen
     G                        Am                 C                 G
To us there was nothing but girls and machines
G                 C                   G              C
Jimmy got married and I went to war
  G                        Am                       C          G
I still don’t know what we were doing it for
                    G             C               G            C
But if you’ll buy me a drink, a turkey on ice
          G                  Am                    C
Then I could give you some advice

CHORUS

                G   Am    C  
You just stay in the bar 
           G      Am      C
For as long as you can
              Em                   G
Cuz as long as you’re drinking 
Am                                             C
You’ve got the world in your hand

VERSE 2
              G                        C                   G               C
There’s no shame in hanging your world by a string
        G                          Am                   C               G
You know there’s no harm in not thinking a thing
       G                         C                   G                C
But trying to find a place for yourself in this world
           G                         Am                   C         G
Is like trying to make a wife of an American girl
          G                 C                 G         C
If you trade me a drink for a story or two
                     G                  Am                C
Then you’ll know what you need to do

CHORUS
                G   Am    C  
You just stay in the bar 
           G      Am      C
For as long as you can
       Em           G
No love is for sissies
        Am                                       C
It’s whiskey that makes you a man

SOLO

VERSE 3
                G                    C                    G               C
Now the old man got up Stumbled out in the street
           G                Am                         C              G
Been drinking all day and left his bar tab to me
   G                       C                 G              C
I didn’t have the money to cover his bill
          G                 Am                         C                  G
But I found me a man looked like me younger still
                  G                 C                    G             C
And I said buy me a drink and I’ll tell you a tale
                    G                    Am                   C
About the old man who taught me so well

CHORUS
                G     Am     C
He said, ‘Stay in the bar 
              G     Am     C
For as long as you can
           Em                  G
Well I know you’re a friend 
         Am                                         C
I can tell by the shakes in your hands

REPEAT CHORUS

               G     Am     C
You just stay in the bar
            G       Am      C
For as long as you dare
    Em                    G
As long as you’re tipping
           Am                                   C
Then you’ve got a friend somewhere
