for the parts I couldn't understand,a comment or email would be appreciated.

G
I took a walk down to Freddy's Bar

C
While my wife and kid were asleep

D
I used to go there almost every night

G
When I was young and free


G
Not that I'm unfairly constrained

C
Held against my will

D
But this is back when it didn't matter

G
What time I stayed out until


G                                            C
Now it matters, because my son gets me up at 5am each day

D                                                G
And you don't argue with someone who's got their finger in your eye


G
Freddy's has a backroom

C
To play music in, or to listen

D                                                  G
Buzzers on the wall beneath icing thick paint that dates back to prohibition


G                                                    C
Tin ceilings bear that wedding cake pattern that the stage lights interrupt

D                                                 G
Pair of TV's playing day-long video collages that Donald dreamed up


G
Donald runs the place

C
He gave me a shot on the way in the other night

D
He always does,and he always did

G
It's what makes Freddy's feel right


G                                              C
Whenever I'm on the fence, about whether that walk is just too far

D
I think about what night it is

G
And whether it's Donald's night at the bar


G
When they move the pool tables out of the way

C
And the TV's lose their glow

D
They start playing music in Freddy's Backroom

G
And the people start to show


G
You could be a sharp backup singer

C
Who smells like coconut

D
Or avant-garde Jersey Jazz trio

G
Who by day smells like Pizza Hut


G                                                             C
Everything outta that back room sounds like its coming out of an old tube radio

D
Either out by the curb or by the kitchen sink

G
And mean to play what Freddy's got


G
My favorite record cover, or one of em, anyway,

C
Is Jerry Jeff Walker

                               D
"It's a Good Night for Singin"

G
And the Backroom sorta reminds me of that cover


G
You got people laughing, people dancing

C
People with funny hats

D
Some in denim, some in leather

G
Or Fort Park Boy-high-low aristocrats(?)


G
Yeah, The back room reminds me of that cover

C
In every way, by and large

D
When I threw down that shot
                                G
I started thinking about how Freddy's is going to be a parking garage


G                                                                      C
Yep, someday soon there'll be something in the space that occupies the

bubbling fishtank

D                                              G
Maybe a tailpipe or a row of fluorescent lights


G
A styrofoam cup

               C
Or a pair of keys hanging from a Dickies belt-loop

D                                              G
Some fastfood trash, or maybe a staircase, or a bright yellow mazda coupe


G                                               C
Someday soon there'll be something in the place where Freddy himself is sure to show

D                                                           G
A wax statue at the end of the bar drinking Fontera like it was just opened 2 weeks ago


G
The Ram's skeleton above the bar in the powder blue wig

C
Or the dented paper towel dispenser

D
The pink ladies' room sign

				G
And the naked man painting by Donald out near the exit


G
Maybe the garage will have showers for their workers

C                                              D
And a real naked man will fit right into that space

G
Maybe Freddy's prediction...


G
All it makes room for is songs like these

C
Sometimes there's no positive inner meaning

D
All it makes room for is songs like these

G
and "It's a Good Night for Singin" x2




Let's sing

G
They're gonna tear down Freddy's

C
They're gonna tear down Hank's saloon

D						  G
Like crickets under rocks, we're all gonna hop to Bennigan's backroom x4
