(E) Well I was three days short of pullin out Bridgeport 
I was (A) headed down to Houston town 
Had my (E) guitar packed in a burlap sack 
For es (F#) cortin my country (B) sound 
I (E) bypassed Jackson, bypassed Memphis 
By the (A) time I got to Arkansas 
Id-a (E) sold my car and this black guitar 
For (B) anything cool and (E) tall 
 
So I (A) pulled up to a neon sign on (E) highway forty-nine 
Shut the (A) engine down, took a look around and (B) then I stepped inside 
I (E) asked that bouncer where I was he said (A) son your at Bills 
(B) Honky tonk pickin, line dance kickin, razor back stickin, barbecue chicken 
Laundromat bar and (E) grill 
 
(E) Well I saw old Bill sittin at the bar  
With a (A) waitress and change machine 
He was (E) dolin out quarters to a waitress names Starr 
When I (F#) asked him if I could (B) sing 
He said, (E) son go ahead if you brought your guitar 
Then he (A) pointed to the back stage door 
He said, (E) we don't like original material 
Un (B) less its been done be (E) fore 
 
Well I (A) hit the stage like a big wheeled train  
Told the (E) crowd I played the seats 
I played the (A) Tennessee Waltz, Kentucky Rain   
And the (B) one about the pearly street 
That ((E) lead guitar was like a chain saw that (A) fiddle like a power drill  
at Bill's 
(B) Honky tonk pickin, line dance kickin, razor back stickin, barbecue chicken 
Laundromat bar and (E) grill 
 
Lead 
 
(E) Well in the few short minutes I was up on stage  
Lookin (A) back at country cowboys face 
With a (E) perfect view I was witness to 
The des (F#) truction of the whole damn (B) place 
It was (E) long necked hims and white fringed hems 
Flyin (A) out of that dodge saloon 
And that me  (E) chanical bull was a Houston pull 
To the (B) safest place in the (E) room 
 
Well a (A) punch-drunk cowboy showed his wife   
That his (E) shirt was soaked in beer 
She said, (A) calm down honey have another lite  
Cause we can (B) wash the shirt right here 
Then the (E) whole place stopped to thank me for (A)bookin my show at Bill's 
(B) Honky tonk pickin, line dance kickin, razor back stickin, barbecue chicken 
Laundromat bar and (E) grill 
At Bill's (B) Honky tonk pickin, line dance kickin, razor back stickin,  
barbecue chicken 
Laundromat bar and (E) grill 
 
Not sure about long-necked hims and white fringed hems, but its close.
