The Old Side Of Town

Song Author Tom T. Hall Performer: Tom T. Hall Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]Ain't it strange how people change
And [C]almost over[G]night
[C]Who once was a [G]country girl
Is now a socia[D7]lite   

We're [G]proud for you but when you're through
And [C]seek some common [G]ground
[C]Oh we [G]miss you
On the [D7]old side of [G]town

We [D7]still drink cokes and tell old jokes
And we [C]bowl at [D7]Splits and [G]Strikes
[C]Country music still [G]plays
On the jukebox every [D7]night

Soci[G]-ety is not for me
But [C]I can still be [G]found
[C]Oh we [G]miss you
On the [D7]old side of [G]town


R-S-V-P is not for me
And [C]black ties are not my [G]style
I [C]thought you'd like to [G]know
'Cause you ain't been here for [D7]awhile


We read about your Tour D'Force
We're [C]glad you get a[G]round
[C]But we [G]miss you
On the [D7]old side of [G]town

We [D7]still drink cokes and tell old jokes
And we [C]bowl at [D7]Splits and [G]Strikes
[C]Country music still [G]plays
On the jukebox every [D7]night

[D7]We still drink cokes and tell old jokes
And we [C]bowl at [D7]Splits and [G]Strikes
George [C]Jones is still the [G]hero
On the jukebox every [D7]night

Soci[G]-ety is not for me
But [C]I can still be [G]found
[C]Oh we [G]miss you
On the [D7]old side of [G]town

Ain't it strange how people change
And almost overnight
Who once was a country girl
Is now a socialite

We're proud for you but when you're through
And seek some common ground
Oh we miss you
On the old side of town

We still drink cokes and tell old jokes
And we bowl at Splits and Strikes
Country music still plays
On the jukebox every night

Soci-ety is not for me
But I can still be found
Oh we miss you
On the old side of town

R-S-V-P is not for me
And black ties are not my style
I thought you'd like to know
'Cause you ain't been here for awhile

We read about your Tour D'Force
We're glad you get around
But we miss you
On the old side of town

We still drink cokes and tell old jokes
And we bowl at Splits and Strikes
Country music still plays
On the jukebox every night

We still drink cokes and tell old jokes
And we bowl at Splits and Strikes
George Jones is still the hero
On the jukebox every night

Soci-ety is not for me
But I can still be found
Oh we miss you
On the old side of town
