     G (2)                                              C (2)

I met a gin-soaked barroom queen in Memphis

         G                    A                   D (2)

She tried to take me upstairs for a ride

        G (2)                                              C (2)

She had to heave me right across her shoulders

             G                           D                       G (2)

‘cause I just can't seem to drink you off my mind

 

             G     D                  G (2)

It’s the Ho  -    nky-tonk  women

 G                         D                                      G (2)

Gimmie, gimmie, gimmie those honky-tonk blues

 

   G (2)                                      C (2)

I layed a divorcee in New York City

    G                  A                     D (2)

I had to put up some kind of a fight

       G (2)                                        C (2)

The lady then she covered me with roses

         G                          D                        G (2)

She blew my nose and then she blew my mind
