Verse 1:
	Low down leaving sun,i've done
	Did everything that needs done
                   D             B7
	Woe is me,why can't i see
               E7                       A
	I best be leaving well enough alone
	Them neon black nights,couldn't stay out of fights
	Them keep a-huanting me memories
                                         D             B7
	There is one in every crowd,for crying out loud
                E7                       A
	Why was it always turning out be me

	Where does it go,the good Lord only knows
	It seems like it was just the other day
                                     D                B7
	I was down at Green Gables,hawking them tables
               E7                                 A
	And generally blowing all my hard earned pay
	Piano rolled blues,danced holes in my shoes
	There weren't another other way to be
                                D                B7
	For loveable losers,no luck can't boozers
              E7                   A
	And honky tonk heroes like me
