One Step Ahead Of The Blues chords
J.J. Cale

D A E  4x *

        D         A
I ain't high on cocaine
        E
I don't need the pain
     D            A                E
It's bad for your brain and that's true
        D           A
I ain't dropping no names
        E
I ain't playing no games
         D         A           E
I'm just one step ahead of the blues
D         A           E
One step ahead of the blues

D A E  2x

     D          A
From Memphis to Reno
     E
From New York to Tokyo
     D           A           E
I'll try to come through for you
  D            A
I won't do you in
           E   
I ain't no fair-weather friend
         D         A           E
I'm just one step ahead of the blues
D         A           E
One step ahead of the blues

D A E  

        D            A
I don't rob, I don't steal
        E
I ain't begging no meal
  D               A             E
I ain't driven to drink, I'm no fool
        D            A
I don't run with the crowd
        E
I don't talk big and loud
         D         A           E
I'm just one step ahead of the blues
D         A           E
One step ahead of the blues

D A E  2x

          D       A
I've been under a spell
             E
I ain't been feeling well
     D         A                 E
I've been in a shell, and that's true
D              A
Dealing with a curse
       E
But it couldn't be worse
          D         A           E
I've been one step ahead of the blues
D         A           E
One step ahead of the blues
D         A           E
One step ahead of the blues
D         A           E
One step ahead of the blues
