[Intro]
G  C  Am  D  C D  G
 
 
[Verse 1]
G
There's a place I know where we all go,
  C                    Am
A little wayS down the road,
         D
It ain't far from here, we like to sit and drink beer,
     C   D             G
Play dominoes and tell jokes.
G
Folks been stopping by since ’49,
C                   Am
Eighteen Hundred, I mean!
      D
Ain't nothing fancy, just kids and ranches and
C           D          G
Clean white shirts and jeans!
 
 
[Chorus]
C               D      G                        Em
Lots of smiling faces, little children running around,
C           D              C        D       G
Everybody's somebody in an old hill country town!
C             D                G                    Em
Dirt daubbers humming, see the stickleburrs on your sockS,
C             D                  C         D    G
Sure sign you spent some time in beautiful Lukenbach!
 
 
[Verse 2]
G
Well, let me tell you now all about the town . . .
C              Am
How it came to be
       D           Am
In the 1800's they came in buggys
   C        D             G
To meet and trade and buy feed.
               G
They built the blacksmith's shop, then later on
     C                Am
They added the cotton gin. . .
        D                  Am
But the old dance hall and general store’s
         C     D        G
Where it all begins and ends!
 
 
[Chorus]
C               D      G                        Em
Lots of smiling faces, little children running around,
C           D              C        D       G
Everybody's somebody in an old hill country town!
C             D                G                    Em
Dirt daubbers humming, see the stickleburrs on your socks,
C             D                  C         D    G
Sure sign you spent some time in beautiful Lukenbach!

[Verse 3]
G
In the 1950's people moved to cities,
C                Am
Leaving it all behind
D                  Am
Luckenbach closed  down for good,
        C         D      G
It just fell on a harder time
G
One day Hondo, driving by,
C               Am
Wished he had a beer
      D                       Am
So he bought the place and he opened it up
       C      D         G
That's reason we're all here
 
 
[Chorus]
C               D      G                        Em
Lots of smiling faces, little children running around,
C           D              C        D       G
Everybody's somebody in an old hill country town!
C             D                G                    Em
Dirt daubbers humming, see the stickleburrs on your socks,
C              D                 C         D    G
Sure sign you spent some time in beautiful Lukenbach!

Lots of smiling faces, little children running around,
C           D              C        D       G
Everybody's somebody in an old hill country town!
C             D                G                    Em
Dirt daubbers humming, see the stickleburrs on your socks,
C              D                 C         D    G
Sure sign you spent some time in beautiful Lukenbach!
