Capo: 3rd Fret

          E
 1ST: My grandmother owned a night club

  A                         E
 On the Arkansas-Oklahoma line

        B7        
 Mama put me on a Greyhound

              A                                B7
 And I went to stay with her in the summertime

           E
 I'd box up those empty long-necks

                  A                          E
 And stack 'em in the back and make a hand

                  B7
 Then at night she'd let me sneak out

                                  A                   E
 Of the kitchen and let me sit in with the band


         E
 2nd Yes, I have sacks and quarterbacks

              A                                E
 And broke my share of bones along the way

            B7
 I knew it wouldn't last forever 
 
              A                       B7
 Semi-pro always means semi-payed

          E
 I started climbing drilling rigs

             A                                  E
 I'm oil field trash and proud as I can be, yeah

               B7
 Then I took my songs and guitar

                   A                        E
 And sang 'em for a man from Tennessee


                  E
 Chorus: I've played every beer joint tavern

               A                           E
 From New York City out to Pasadena

           B7
 Every corn dog fair and rodeo

                   A                    B7
 And sold out every basketball arena

    E
 Like to get down with my boys 

  A                      E
 In Afghanistan and Baghdad City too

  B7
 I am a red, white and blue blooded

      A                E    
 Graduate of Honkytonk U


  E
 3rd: A star can't burn forever

  A     E
 And the brightest ones will someday lose their shine

  B7
 But the glass won't ever be

  A                    B7
 Half empty in my optimistic mind

     E
 I'll still have a song to sing

  A   E
 And a band to turn it up and play it loud

           B7
 As long as there's a bar room

  A                           E
 With a corner stage and a honky tonk crowd


   E
 Chorus: I've played every beer joint tavern

        A                         E
 From New York City out to Pasadena

     B7
 Every corn dog fair and rodeo

  A                        B7
 And sold out every basketball arena

     E
 I like to get down with my boys 

  A                     E
 In Afghanistan and Baghdad City too

               B7
 Son, I'm a red, white and blue blood

     A                E
 Graduate of Honkytonk U
