A F#m D A
I live near Hollywood out in the Canyon
D A D E
It's a good life if you're winnin' it's a killer if you're not
A F#m D A
My wife up and left last night, couldn't stand another fight
D A D E
The studio boss fired me, my future's been shot by

Chorus:
A F#m E
The Three Martini Lunch
D A D E
Things will get better soon, I gotta hunch
A F#m E D A
The three martini lunch, wasting another afternoon
D E A (then riff as in intro)
Punching a hole in my life

A F#m D A
I came from the backwoods my prospects seemed real good
D A D E
For actor or director the future looked bright
A F#m D A
But I ran in with a bad crowd and since then it's just been down
D A D E
Alone in the Canyon my only companion

Chorus

A F#m D A
I know what they're saying yeah I'll never get back again
D A D E
I pushed my luck this time and I'm on the skids
A F#m D A
But I know what I'm doing I just can't stop doing it
D A D E
Me and my companion, hell bent to ruin it

Chorus

Coda

D A
Wasting another afternoon
D E A F#m E
Punching a hole in my li............fe
D A
Wasting another afternoon
D E A
Punching a hole in my life
