Theres the Door

Song Author George Jones Lyrics by: George Jones Performer: George Jones Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]I wandered in around midnight

Like I've done so many times
She was [F]sitting at the table
There were [G7]no tears in her [C]eyes


It seemed so much unlike her

To be so much at ease
She [F]took a sip of coffee
And [G7]softly said to [C]me  

There's the [F]mantle where
We keep our wedding [C]picture
There's the [G7]bedroom where
We make both love and [C]war  

And there's the [F]ring that keeps
On slipping off your [C]finger
There's no [D7]reason we should go on any[G7]more   
And there's the [C]door


So I'm back here on this bar stool

My whole world gone to hell
Behind the [F]bottles there's a mirror
Where a [G7]fool can see [C]himself


If I was the man I should be

And not the one I am
I would go [F]back there this minute
And [G7]beg for one more [C]chance

There's the [F]jukebox
Where I wasted all those [C]quarters
Oh there's a [G7]lady trying to
Get me out on the [C]floor

And there's a [F]chance the one I love
Would still [C]forgive me
It's a [D7]step that I just never took[G7] before
There's the [C]door

I wandered in around midnight

Like I've done so many times
She was sitting at the table
There were no tears in her eyes

It seemed so much unlike her

To be so much at ease
She took a sip of coffee
And softly said to me

There's the mantle where
We keep our wedding picture
There's the bedroom where
We make both love and war

And there's the ring that keeps
On slipping off your finger
There's no reason we should go on anymore
And there's the door

So I'm back here on this bar stool

My whole world gone to hell
Behind the bottles there's a mirror
Where a fool can see himself

If I was the man I should be

And not the one I am
I would go back there this minute
And beg for one more chance

There's the jukebox
Where I wasted all those quarters
Oh there's a lady trying to
Get me out on the floor

And there's a chance the one I love
Would still forgive me
It's a step that I just never took before
There's the door
