Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Dublin Blues, Guy Clark
Geez, how'd the lyrics come out all on one line, when I indented it, too? It'll probably come out that way here, too!!

Well, anyway, the first verse is:

1/I wish I was in Austin/ in the Chili Parlor Bar/ Drinkin' Maddog Margueritas/ And not caring where you are.

2) But here I sit in Dublin/ Just rollin cigarettes/ Holdin' back and chokin' back/ The shakes with every breath.

Chorus

3) I am just a poor boy/ work's my middle name/ If money was a reason/ Well, I would not be the same.

And so on.
