Oh, I used to wish I was a hard line taker...and they'd say, 
Bm 
'Six to one a half dozen'll break her,' 
      C                                            G 
'Till I fell in love with a young man who sang the blues 
G 
Oh, bless my daddy, he warned me well 
     Bm 
He'd whisper in my ear and say, 'Now look out, gal... 
        C                                         G 
There's always a ne'er do well gonna call you the fool' 

C G He said, 'You'll never learn to fish on a borrowed line C G You'll never learn to write if you're walkin' 'round cryin' C G And it's a pity that your lover died young, but... Cm G You'll never get tired of livin' alone.'
Verse G So, now I dream of the lover that I don't know Bm It's safer this way 'cuz I don't have to go... C G Oh, and he won't come...so nobody goes away G Sometimes I wish for the warmth of his hand Bm Take a look in these eyes and understand C G I'm just a little too old to be a-learnin' the rules of the game
C G He said, 'You'll never learn to fish on a borrowed line C G You'll never learn to write if you're walkin' 'round cryin' C G And it's a pity that your lover died young, but... Cm G You'll never get tired of livin' alone.'
Solo/Break G Bm C G G Bm C G Verse G Oh, maybe I could take him to Mexico Bm We'd kick our heels in the warm cloudy gulf C He'd sing a song about the weather in the Poconos; G This lover that I don't know G Then two hearts would pound 'stead of one in the night Bm I'd learn to fish with my own line C G Catch that dream and hope that line would hold
C G He said, 'You'll never learn to fish on a borrowed line C G You'll never learn to write if you're walkin' 'round cryin' C G And it's a pity that your lover died young, but... Cm G You'll never get tired of livin' alone.' Cm G No, I never get tired of livin' alone Cm G Sometimes my feet get cold...when I'm livin' alone...
