Three Chords Worth of Tears

They know me well in this town

They call me by my name

They know that since you left me

I’ve never been the same

The bartender’s my best friend

He always treats me right

He looks a little sad to say

It’s last call for the night

 

So, I’ll have something high and lonesome

Let’s make it loud and clear

Like ol’ Hank was singing in my ear

Pour me one more whiskey

Before we get out of here

Give me two bits for the jukebox,

And three chords worth of tears

 

He welcomes me when I walk in

He shakes hands when I leave

He makes believe he doesn’t see

The heart ripped from my sleeve

He brings the bottle over and fills it to the top

But to me, the glass looks empty

Before I touch a drop

 

So, I’ll have something high and lonesome

Let’s make it loud and clear

Like ol’ Hank was singing in my ear

Pour me one more whiskey

Before we get out of here

Give me two bits for the jukebox,

And three chords worth of tears

  

Well, you can ask and I can talk

And talk ‘till I go home

But you won’t know how I feel until

You hear it from George Jones

 

Pour me one more whiskey

Before we get out of here

Give me two bits for the jukebox,

And three chords worth of tears
