Intro: G D Dsus C
G
Well the day it ends when the sun comes up
    D                        C
and starts when the sun goes down.
G                         
Out on the back roads and on the back streets 
         D                C
of every farm and factory town.
Em                    D
There in the world of weekly wage,
G                          C
there's always a place out there, 
        G             D             C            D            D
and the names and the faces are the same----everywhere.

Chorus:
	 G   		      D      C
Well the room is full, it's a Friday night, 
   G           D            C
we all want to hear "Louie, Louie" 
	    G                    D         C
It's been a long, hard day and a long hard life, 
    G		   D		   C
and this is how we make it through it.
       Em		    D	  
It's a blue collar place, a red blooded crowd, 
  G                     C
tonight everything's all right,
   G     D    C   pause
In honky-tonk Amer-----ica.

2x G D Dsus C
	  G						
There's a flashing sign on a rain soaked street, 
D     			  C
that lights up just about dark.
  G          
A welcome beakon on a lost highway 
            D                          C
when you're weary and when you've lost heart.
Em             D
Never say it's lonelyness,
     G			     C
it's only the drinks and the band,
    G		     D       C 
but something brings us back here again,
    D
and again.

Chorus: 
	 G		      D	     C
Well the room is full, it's a Friday night.
   G	       D           C
We all want to hear "Proud Mary."
            G                   D         C
It's been a long hard day and a long hard life,
      G           D          C 
We've all got our crosses to carry.
       Em                   D
It's a blue collar place, a red blooded crowd, 
  G                      C
Tonight everything is all right, 
   G     D    C   PAUSE
In honky-tonk Amer-----ica.

Tonight everybody's feeling fine-----------.

	    G	      D		C
It's been a long hard day and a long hard life,
       G             D          C
Monday morning we'll all do our duty.
       Em		    D
It's a blue collar place, a red blooded crowd,
