          BAR LIGHT   Charlie Robison 
        A                                  D
Well, when I was young my momma read me  Nursery rhythms beside my bed
      A                                   E
And though they sounded mighty fine they made no sense to me
A                              D             
Now that I'm all grown up it seems life has changed and such
A                                  E              A 
So I went out and made me up a nursery rythmn for me

CHORUS:

It goes
A                      D 
Bar Light Bar Bright first bar that I see tonight
A                        E
Wish I may Wish I might find someone to hold me tight
      A             
Hey diddle diddle the man with the fiddle
          D
And the girls sing along with the tunes
A         
Just-a one more dance till ya turn out the lights
              E               A
And you can shut down this saloon   
                   D                     A
Ending:  I said, Just-a one more dance, till you turn out the lights
                       E               A    A A A A
         And you can shut down this saloon


     A 
2.) You know I never understood how that big ole gal
        D
Could raise those kids in a shoe
A
And any old Jack goes jumping a candle 
          E
needs to find something better to do
     A                                      D
And rub a dub dub three men in a tub sure sounds kind of funny to me
      A                                                E             A
So I made up a honky tonk nursery rythmn and it's the only one I'll say

Go to chorus, lead, repeat 2nd verse, chorus, ending.
