The Glass On The Bar chords

Lee Kernaghan


Capo: 5st fret

(The CD Key is in F if you want to transpose it back) C G Three bushman one morning rode up to an Inn Am Em And one of them called for drinks with a grin F They'd only returned from a trip to the north C G And eager to greet them the landlord came forth Fmaj7 He absently poured out a glass of three star C G And set down the drink with the rest on the bar C G There that is for Harry he said and it's queer Am Em Tis' the very same glass he drank from last year F His name's on the glass you can read it like print C G He scratched it himself with an old piece of flint Fmaj7 I remember his drink it was always three star C G C He set down the drink with the rest on the bar C G He looked at the horses and counted but three Am Em You were always together where's Harry cried he F Oh sadly they looked at the glass as they said C G You may put it away for our old mate is dead Fmaj7 But one glazing out over the ridges afar C G C Said we owe him a drink leave the glass on the bar Instr: C G Am C F C G They thought of the far away grave on the plain Am Em They thought of the comrade who'd not come again F They lifted their glasses and sadly they said C G We drink to the name of our old mate who's dead Fmaj7 And the sunlight streamed in and a light like a star C G Seemed to glow in the depth of the glass on the bar C G And still in that shanty a tumbler is seen Am Em It stands by the clock ever polished and clean F And often the strangers will read as they pass C G The name of the bushman engraved on the glass Fmaj7 And though on that shelf though a dozen there are C G C That glass never stands with the rest on the bar
