(w/George Jones)
(James Taylor)

I磎 just a bartender
And I don磘 like my work
But I don磘 mind the money at all
I see lots of sad faces
And lots of bsd cases of
Folks with their backs to the wall

But I need four walls around me
To hold my life
To keep me from going astray
And a honky-tonk angel
To hold me tight
To keep me from slipping away

I can light up your smokes
I can laugh at your jokes
I can watch you fall down on your knees
I can close down this bar
I can gas up my car
I can pack up and mail in the key

But I need four walls around me
To hold my life
To keep me from going astray
And a honky-tonk angel
To hold me tight
To keep me from slipping away

Now the smoke fills the air
In this honky-tonk bar
And I磎 thinking 碽out
Where I磀 rather be
But I burned all my bridges
I sank all ships and
I磎 stranded at the edge of the sea

But I need four walls around me
To hold my life
To keep me from going astray
And a honky-tonk angel
To hold me tight
To keep me from slipping away
