Anyone know the words to this song? Something about..."throw me a lifeline, XXXXXXXXXXXXX, and keep me from blowing away"

According to my resident music historian (husband) this was done by Linda Ronstadt awhile back, and he thinks it was written by J.D. Souther. Will look for the album in our dusty old shelf of prior technology.

Isn't this a James Taylor song?

Now, I'm just a bartender and I don't like my work but I don't mind the money at all I see lots of sad faces and lots of bad cases and folks with their backs to the wall

I need four walls around me to hold my life to keep me from going astray a honky tonk angel to hold me tight and keep me from blowing away

etc.

George Jones and Bartender's Blues did the trick....finally remembered it......

BARTENDER'S BLUES
Recorded by George Jones
Writer: James Taylor

Now, I'm just a bartender and I don't like my work
But I don't mind the money at all
I see lots of sad faces and lots of bad cases
Of folks with their backs to the wall.

CHORUS
But, I need four walls around me, to hold my life
To keep me from goin' astray
And a honky tonk angel to hold me tight
To keep me from slipping away.

I can light up your smokes, I can laugh at your jokes
I can watch you fall down on you knees
I can close down this bar, I can gas up my car
And I can pack up and mail in my keys.

CHORUS

Now the smoke fills the air, in this honky tonk bar
And I'm thinking 'bout where I'd rather be
But I've burned all my bridges and I sink all my ships
Now I'm stranded at the edge of the sea.

I still need four walls around me, to hold my life
To keep me from going astray
I need some honky tonk angels to hold me tight
They'll keep me from slipping away.

My wife just found a version written by P, Craft on a Linda Ronstadt album called Heart like a Wheel.
Will ask her to copy it up for you,
Regards Baz
