[Verse]
G B Em There's only one bar in this town I get drunk at,
C D still I have open tabs at two.
G B Em I dated the waitress at the third bar I'm thinking of,
A D and there's four bars in this town I can't even go into.
G B Em My friend Kenny used to tend bar at the fifth one,
C D still tends bar at the sixth one too.
G B Em The seventh bar on this block has a kick-ass jukebox,
A D the eighth one will let you smoke inside after two.
G B Em I've sung songs in about nine bars in east Nashville, Tennessee,
C D but I know I've been to at least ten.
G B Em I'll always go back to good ol' eleventh street bar in New York City,
A D when the twelve bar blues has got me down again.
[Chorus]
G B Em I got, twelve bar blues,
C D G too many bars to choose.
G B Em Well I will drink tonight,
A D G and get me feeling alright
[Verse]
G B Em How many roads must a man walk down,
C D to find an affordable bar in the city of Los Angeles
G B Em Or even more so to find some affordable company,
A D seems you have to pay for the conversation there in one way or another
even if you're not directly involved.
G B Em You're always overhearing that story about the one that got away,
C D or the movie script that one is writing that's gonna change everything.
G B Em Feel like if writing stuff down really changed anything,
A D a lot more people would know who Philip Levine is.
G B Em He was an american poet laureate,
C D one of my teachers forgot to tell me about him in school,
G B Em probably 'cause his poems got bad words in them.
A D Talk about board of education, American style.
[Chorus]
G B Em I got, twelve bar blues,
C D G too many bars to choose.
G B Em Well I will drink tonight,
A D G and get me feeling alright
[Verse]
G B Em So hang some taxidermy up on the wall, mute the TV.
C D That pool table over there gives out every other game for free.
G B Em Don't tell anybody though, the manager doesn't know anything about it.
A That's kind of the way it is at our bar,
D it's a litte broken and it aint that great
G B Em but hell man, it's ours.
C One time this guy came into our bar,
D G B sang karaoke style Hootie and the blowfish.
Em We had to ask that guy to leave.
C D Not cause we don't like Hootie though.
G B Em Hell man, I hear Hootie is an alright guy.
C So Hootie this beer is for you my friend,
D shine on you crazy diamond.
G B Em Don't let the bastards get you down,
A D hold my hand, I only wanna be with you.
[Chorus]
G B Em I got, twelve bar blues,
C D G too many bars to choose.
G B Em Well I will drink tonight,
A D G and get me feeling alright
[Chorus]
G B Em I got, twelve bar blues,
C D G too many bars to choose.
G B Em Well I will sleep tonight,
A D G and get me feeling alright
