Still Doing Time

George Jones

 

†††††† D

Has it been a year since the last time Iíve seen her

††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

My God I could swear it was ten

 

And the ocean of liquor I drank to forget her

††††††††††††† E7††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††A

Is gonna kill me but Iíll drink till then

†††††††††††††††† G

Iíve been living in hell with a bar for a cell

††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

Still paying for my cheating crime

†††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††† A7††† ††††††††††††††††††††D††††† A7

And Iíve got a long way to go - Still doing time

 

<CHORUS>

††††††††††††††††††† D

Still doing time - In a honky tonk prison

D7††††††††††††† G

Still doing time - Where a man ainít forgiven

††††††† A††††† †††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††G

My poor heart is breaking - But thereís no escaping

††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A7††††††††††††††††††††††† D

Each morning I wake up and I find - Still doing time

 

 

††††††††††††††††††††††† G

Oh when your caught cheating twice - Itís twenty to life

††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††† G

In a place where the sun never shines

†††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††† †††††††A7††††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††† A7

And tomorrow youíre gonna find me right here - Still doing time
