Slaid Cleaves – Drunken Barbers Hand chords

Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
AmThree scruples to a dram boys
AmEight drams to an ounce
Dm AmTwo cups will get you a pint now
E7And the first one’s on the house
[Verse 2]
AmThe drunkard craves just another
AmBlind man blames the eye
Dm AmThe poor man dreams of riches
E7 AmAnd a martyr prays to die
[Chorus]
AmI don't need to read the papers
DmOr the tea leaves to understand
AmThat this world's been shaved
Em AmBy a drunken barber's hand
[Verse 3]
AmI've drowned in the pull of young love
AmKnown the high and the hurt
Dm AmI've felt the heartbeat quicken
E7At the sight of a lifted skirt
[Verse 4]
AmI've thrilled to the big sound
AmFelt the rumble and the roar
Dm AmDrove straight through the blackest night
E7 AmIn a chase forevermore
[Chorus]
AmI don't need to read the papers
DmOr the tea leaves to understand
AmThat this world's been shaved
Em AmBy a drunken barber's hand
[Bridge]
DmI rode ten thousand miles
AmOn a carousel horse of wood
DmWe end up where we started
EmGet right back on if we could
[Verse 5]
AmSo go ahead make your confession
AmTo a washed up whiskey priest
Dm AmI'll be puttin' money down
E7 AmOn the rough and slouching beast
[Chorus]
Am'Cause I don't need to read the papers
DmOr the tea leaves to understand
AmThat this world's been shaved
Em AmBy a drunken barber's hand
[Chorus]
AmI don't need to read the papers
DmOr the tea leaves to understand
AmThat this world's been shaved
Em AmBy a drunken barber's hand
