C                       F
She was a waitress in a west Texas dance hall. 
C                     G              C
I was a cowboy with a throat full of sand. 
C                          F
I called her, "Honey," when she brought my whiskey, 
    C                  G           C
And later I left there holding her hand. 
C                                 F
Then we walked down the street to a tumble-down hotel, 
C                         G           C
Where she had a room on a cold second floor. 
C                                     F
And that room looked like hell just a bed and a table, 
C                           G           C
A shade on the window and a lock on the door. 


G                        F   
I said to myself, "She's cheap and she's easy, 
        C                                      G
But she don't look half bad, I'll stay for the night. 
C                              F
But I'll leave when it's early cause I've got this feeling, 
C                             G              C
She won't look so good in the bright morning light."

C                                F
Yeah, I've known some devils and I've known some angels, 
C                         G      C
I once had a woman on the Mexico line. 
C                                F
But I've never been touched like that woman touched me, 
C                           G             C     A
She lay there beside me and crawled in my mind. 
D                               G
And we talked and we smoked and made love till mornin', 
D                                  A           D
The sun came a streamin' through a hole in the shade. 
D                                   G
And it fell like a spotlight on her face and her body, 
D                                  A            D
And it hung like a halo 'round the bed where we lay. 


A                        G
I said to myself, "She's cheap and she's easy, 
        D                                              A
But she don't look half bad, I guess I'll stay for the night. 
D                                                 G
But I'll tell you boys that was five years ago, an', Lord, God, what a woman! 
D                              A              D
She still looks as good in the bright morning light.
