[Intro]
A


[Verse 1]
A E ASome years ago some stars and I formed this little band
D AThey went on to be somebody now I'm their greatest fan
D A AI helped write the music that set their ship a sail
A E AAnd I'm still playing guitar in a bar in Bakersfield
[Verse 2]
A E AThis town had a new sound and we found it on a gig
D AGod bless the boys that used it and went off to make it big
D A AI could've left and done it too but I couldn't leave Lucille
A E A'Cause she's the dad-gum bar maid in a bar in Bakersfield
[Chorus]
D AHey, I could have busted out some years ago
E ABut LuLu kept beggin' me not to go
D A AThere were times when things were rough on us but we never missed no meal
A E AExisting, playin' guitar in a bar in Bakersfield
[Solo] D A E A D A E A E A [Verse 3]
A E AI've been busy playin' rhythm and learnin' lead guitar
D AHad to stay and make a living, had no time to be a star
D A AOh, I'll never make the big time and I'll never be no Will
A E ADamn it, Iā€™m booked seven nights a week in this bar in Bakersfield
[Chorus]
D AHey, I could have busted out some years ago
E ABut LuLu kept beggin' me not to go
D A AThere were times when things were rough on us but we never missed no meal
A E AExisting, playin' guitar in a bar in Bakersfield
A E AI've been survivin', playin' guitar in a bar in Bakersfield
[Outro] D A E A D A E A E A
