G                       C
Drinkin' all night in a tavern
C  D                      G
My head is a mighty heavy load
G                         C
I feel like I've been run over
C      D                          G
Like a poor little critter on the road

G                          C
Poor little critter on the road,
D                        G
Where were you tryin' to go?
G                           C
Life's got a bucket full of woes for
D                              G
The poor little critter on the road, oh
D                              G        (riff)
The poor little critter on the road

I must have had me a good time
Cause I'm feelin so poorly today
Somehow I can't quite remember,
That's one of the prices that you pay

(repeat chorus)    (riff)

I can remember the drinkin'
And dancin on into the night
Somethin' about some romancin'
Then I started up a fight

variation of chorus:

Well I feel like a critter on the road
Maybe I want to get knowed
Life's got a bucket of woes for
The poor little critter on the road, oh
The poor little critter on the road
