Key: B
Capo on 2nd fret
 
 
Am               C                D           Am 
Joe plays the bartender, he knows everybody's drink  
Am                     C              D              Am 
He pours them out with bad advice and never stops to think 
Am              C         D               Am 
He only sells a temporary respite for the day  
Am               C          D              Am 
Still he holds a major roll in this little place 
 
 
Angie is a waitress with a story of her own  
She balances the drinks with two kids back at home 
She will be in bed by 2a.m. and up again at 6 
A single mom with no support she's learning all the tricks 
 
 
Chorus: 
F             G                Em 
Me, I Chose a ghostly glow the smoke hangs in the air  
F            G                     Em 
Lonely souls play lonely roles and one seems to care 
    F              G                  C       C/B      Am 
You stand their to bar stage left and say our lines on queue 
F                 Em                            Am  
It?s the nightily drama, the Starlight Lounge Review 
 
 
Jasmine is a working girl, she smiles at every man 
Being here at 32 was never in her plan 
Cocaine sent ambition and self respect right out the door 
She was once daddy's little girl, but now she's just a whore 
 
Old Charlies pushing 63, he's here each day at 5 
He wouldn't be caught dead in here if his wife was still alive 
He's got a daughter in Seattle and a son in San Antone 
They think old Charlie?s doing fine living out here on his own 
 
Chorus 
 
Joe brings me another drink and lights my cigarette 
As I try hard to remember what I came here to forget 
Angie unplugs the juke box, Jasmine walks in to the night 
Old Charlie tips his hat and says I?ll see you back at 5 
 
Chorus
