Janis Ian
[Verse 1]
C                 Am7        Dm7
Bright lights and promises a pocket full of dreams
C                Am7       Dm7
That's what they pay me to be
F              Fm        C
Gold lame' and diamonds  I am a hometown queen
Ab7              G7               C   Ab7 G7
Honey, would you sing it just for me?

[Verse 2]
C          Am7      Dm7
When I was good and when I was bad
C       Am7                     Dm7
I never thought I'd end up this way
F                 Fm          C
With no dreams to hide me  no bright lights to guide me
Ab7              G7               C       Ab7 G7
How long does it take to make the grade?

Fm           Eaug   Ab            Bb7
Everywhere I hear a ringing in my ears
Eb       Bb            C      C7
Drummer, let the music play
Fm                 Eaug          Ab            Bb7
Give me small town blues make it loud, make it do
Ab7           C7    F
Listen to the music sway.   Change to CAPO 2 - D

[Verse 3]
C             Am7       Dm7
Bar-rails and cocktails have you got a light?
C                  Am7     Dm7
Ain't that what it pays to keep in sight?
F             Fm          C
Over used and much abused promises of delight
Ab7                      G7        C
Honey, would you care to spend the night? Change to CAPO 3 - Eb

[Verse 4]
C             Am7       Dm7
Take a little time some memories and wine
C             Am7           Dm7
Loosen up the sucker by the bar
    F              Fm       C
And if he wants to hold you if he wants to know
Ab7                G7        C    Ab7  G7
Honey, that's what your here for.
F           Fm          C                Am
Until all I see is them reaching out for me
Ab7                G7           C
Drummer, play that ol' time melody. Change to CAPO 6 - F#

[Verse 5]
C                 Am       Dm7
Bright lights and promises that's all it's for
C               Am     Dm7
Leave and enter by the service door
         F              Fm            C
Now, I'm gold lame' and diamonds even if my gold is worn
Ab7            G7      C
Honey, can you show me more?
