When The Bartneder Cries

	  		Intro: C G F C G F 
 
 
Verse1: 
      C             G              F 
 This bar has been my home away from her 
 
 C          G             C   G 
 Used to be, she was missing me 
 
 C                G      F 
 Now she's moving in with her best friend 
 
            C           G                 C   G 
 And I'm the only one who wants what used to be 
 
 C                G            F 
 I'm here because today I lost it all 
 
 C               G               C   G 
 I didn't want to drink at home alone 
 
 C             G    F                         C 
 I just can't believe all my hopes and dreams are falling 
 
      G         C   G 
Like a row of dominoes 
 
 
Chorus1: 
              C              G 
 I thought the man behind the bar 
 
     F            G 
 Had heard it all before 
 
 C                Am              G 
 My story must have caught him by surprise 
 
              Am          G 
 Cause when he handed me my double 
 
          F               C 
 There were tears in his eyes 
 
     F                   C 
 You know you're in trouble 
 
         G              C G F 
 When the bartender cries 
 
 
Verse2: 
           C                       G            F 
 He said, "Last night you swore you'd never drink again" 
 
     C           G                C    G  
 I said, "Next time, I'm really gonna try 
 
          C                G F 
 So if she ever calls for me 
 
            F               C 
 Oh, you can finally tell her, "He ain't here" 
 
    G           C   G 
 And it won't be a lie 
 
 
Chorus2: 
              C             G 
 I asked the man behind the bar 
 
          F              G 
 What he'd been crying for 
 
           C                   Am             G 
 He said, "That bottle used to be a friend of mine 
 
       Am                      G  
 Now I've stopped drinking doubles 
 
      F                   C 
 But I pour them all of the time 
 
         F               C 
 Son, you know you're in trouble 
 
        G              C 
 When the bartender cries" 
 
 
Bridge: 
 F               G              C           Am    F 
 As I saw my own reflection staring back at me, I knew 
 
            F          G        (pause) 
 Every single word he said was true 
 
 
Chorus3: 
 (no chord)        C             G 
 Well, I told the man behind the bar 
 
          F               G     C  
 I thought I'd seen it all before 
 
               Am            G 
 Till I saw the sadness in his eyes 
 
            Am              G 
 That's when I put down my double 
 
     F              C 
 And said my last goodbyes 
 
               F              C 
 'Cause you know you're in trouble 
 
          G             Am 
 When the bartender cries 
 
       F                   C  G 
 Oh, you know you're in trouble 
 
                       C G F       C 
 When the bartender cries
