EVERY LITTLE HONKY TONK BAR - George Strait

Bb   C      F

F
Whiskey is the gasoline that lights the fire that burns the bridge
Dm
Ice creates the water that's no longer running under it
Bb                                                         C
Stool holds the fool that pours the whiskey on his broken heart
F
Cigarettes create the smoke that hides the lonesome in his eyes
      Dm
The jukebox plays Hank, "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry"
Bb                                                   C
Dance floor holds the folks trying to forget who they are
    Bb                     C                       F
And that's what happens in every little honky tonk bar

    Dm
You think you're tall and bulletproof until somebody says you're not
    Bb                                               C
