Settlin' For What They Get
Mark Chesnutt

From the table to the jukebox
Is just a few short steps
Where a dollar will buy a sad song,
And a few strong drinks to help
Them ol' lonely hearts and honky tonks,
Searchin' for happiness
Tryin' to find what they want
And settlin' for what they get

From the promise of forever
To the waving of goodbye
To many hearts are broken,
'Cause too many lips have lied
To those lonely hearts, and honky tonks,
Searchin' for happiness
Tryin' to find what they want
And settlin' for what they get

So step right up, and wish me luck
And play that song again
The one about a loser
Who just can't seem to win
And all those lonely hearts and
Honky tonks searchin' for happiness
Tryin' to find what they want
And settlin' for what they get



So step right up, and wish me luck
And play that song again
The one about a loser
Who just can't seem to win
And all those lonely hearts and
Honky tonks searchin' for happiness
Tryin' to find what they want
And settlin' for what they get

Tryin' to find what they want
And settlin' for what they get...
