C C/B Am Am/G I've got five--- minutes... to sneak a cigarette,
F G Five minutes to my - self,
C C/B Am Am/G Back behind the screen door of Andy's Luncheonette,
F G C (Csus4) (C)And I ain't got time to worry 'bout my health!
C C/B Am Am/G My boss, Andy, says I smoke myself to death,
F G Andy, he reminds me some of you,
C C/B Am Am/G Back when you were Romeo, and I was Juliet,
F G C (Csus4)(C)West Texas Capu - let and Monta - gue!
C/B Am Am/G F Now I don't think too much a - bout you anymore,
C C/E G We weren't much more than kids,

C C/B Am Am/GNow I've got five------ minutes,
F G C C/B Am Am/G Fmaj7 Not much time to remi - nice!

C C/B Am Am/GMost nights I come home from work, and I pour a glass of wine,
F GSome - times it's three, or four, before I stop,
C C/B Am Am/G And Jessie makes a sandwich... if I sleep through supper - time,
F G C (Csus4) (C)And she leaves me on the couch to sleep it off!
C C/B Am Am/G Now, Jessie just turned seventeen, and she's wild as she can be,
F G And there ain't nothing I can do,
C C/B Am Am/GLast weekend she ran off to meet a boy in Tennes - see,
F G C (Csus4)(C) Just like I used to run to you!
C/B Am Am/G F I gave her hell, when she came home this afternoon,
C C/E G Mascara running down her face,
Am Am/G FSeems like history repeats it - self, and it ain't up to you,
C C/B Am Am/GAnd in five---- minutes...
F G C C/B Am Am/G Fmaj7 ...your whole life can change!

C C/B Am Am/G Now, Andy, he's good to me, and I can see it in his eyes,
F G He'd love to take your place,
C C/B Am Am/G But something deep in - side me just... withers up and dies,
F G C (Csus4)(C)To make love to him, and only see your face!
C/B Am Am/G F Somehow I've let my - self go gently down the stream,
C C/E G A fine ex - ample I have set,
Am Am/G FBetween the working and the living, and the ghosts that haunt my dreams,
C C/B Am Am/GI've got five------ minutes,
F G C C/B Am Am/G Fmaj7 And I'm gonna smoke this cigar - tte!
