She drives him to the airport Watches till he boards the plane
            F                           F   
Then she hurries to a phone booth And across town the telephone rings

She's got

chorus diddie
Bb        Eb

Eb            Bb  diddie  Eb          Bb     diddie
One for the money        Two for the show

She arrives at the honky tonk just a little bit late
             Eb                                                Bb   
Parks her mercedes round back cause her name's on the license plate
     Cm          Eb                                    Bb  
She steps into another life  As she walks through the door
          F                           F
And she melts into his arms As they dance out across the floor and she's got

to chorus, lead     Oooooo ooooo ooo
  Eb                                  Bb
Another lover's wild weekend Ends to soon
               Eb                               Bb
And when they open up the blinds it's Sunday afternoon
      Cm             Eb                                   Bb 
She wishes it could last forever And he's begging her to stay
But she's got to pull herself to gether 
Cause there's a plane coming in from L.A.
