Tell it to the Jukebox
© Dallas Wayne

V.1
WELL I CAME IN HERE JUST TO HAVE A BEER
AND TO PASS A LITTLE TIME
AND TRY TO SORT OUT SOME THINGS
THAT WERE WEIGHIN' HEAVY ON MY MIND
HE SAID "THE BEER, WELL THAT I CAN GET YOU
BUT AS FAR AS ADVICE
I'M JUST THE BARTENDER HERE
HERE'S YOUR CHANGE IN DIMES"

V.2
HE SAID "I'VE BEEN BEHIND THIS BAR FOR 30 YEARS
AND I GUESS I'VE SEEN IT ALL
AND THE STOOLS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FULL OF FOOLS LIKE YOU
I'VE SEEN MORE THAN I CARE TO RECALL
BUT THE TIPS ARE GOOD
'N I CAN'T COMPLAIN, CAUSE I'M JUST A WORKIN' MAN
SO IF YOU DON'T MIND, TELL IT TO THE JUKEBOX
SHE ALWAYS UNDERSTANDS"

CH.
YOU CAN TELL IT TO THE JUKEBOX IN THE CORNER
ONE DIME AT A TIME
OR, THREE PLAYS FOR A QUARTER
'I'LL LOVE YOU A THOUSAND WAYS' AND 'BORN TO LOSE'
AND, DON'T FORGET 'IF I'D LEFT IT UP TO YOU'
OR, 'THE STATUE OF A FOOL'
WHO LET LOVE SLIP THROUGH HIS HANDS
YOU CAN TELL IT TO THE JUKEBOX
SHE ALWAYS UNDERSTANDS

V.3
HE SAID "EACH TUNE TELLS A STORY
AND THEY'RE ALL ABOUT THREE MINUTES LONG
THEIR MELODIES ARE SIMPLE
BUT IT'S THE WORDS THAT MAKE A COUNTRY SONG
THEY CAN HEAL A BROKEN HEART
OR THEY CAN BREAK IT RIGHT IN TWO…
DEPENDING ON WHAT BUTTONS YOU PUSH
BUT BROTHER, THAT'S UP TO YOU"

REPEAT CH.
(TAG) OR, 'THE STATUE OF A FOOL'
WHO LET LOVE SLIP THROUGH HIS HANDS
YOU CAN TELL IT TO THE JUKEBOX
SHE ALWAYS UNDERSTANDS
