I'll Be A Bachelor Till I Die

Intro: Here are three alternate-octave riffs you can toy around with to simulate 
the lap-steel guitar. 
The 3rd is closest to the steel version, but I think any riff will work depending 
on what you're going for.  
The 2nd version acts as a template for starting the guitar solo after the first verse.  
If you can use a slide, it sounds even better.

VERSE 2:
D
I don't mind honky tonkin' round if that will bring you fun
						     D7
But somehow I can't understand how one and one makes one
G			      D			
I like to cuddle near you and listen to you lie
					         A7              D
But get that marryin' out of your head I'll be a bachelor till I die


(Fiddle Solo)


VERSE 3:
D
Now if you want a help mate you're just wasting lots of time	
							     D7
Cause I'm afraid of church bells how they scare me when they chime
G				    D
I've seen those married people just up and say goodbye
					         A7	         D
So keep that marryin' out of your head I'll be a bachelor till I die


(Steel Solo, ends with opening riff)


VERSE 4:
D
This freedom's mighty precious in this land of liberty
					         D7
I've seen what matrimony done to better men than me
G                                     D
I don't mind keepin' comp'ny with the apple of my eye
					         A7               D
But keep that marryin' out of your head I'll be a bachelor till I die


*This Williams Sr. (waaayy better than jr.) tune worked out by the long-gone
