Intro: Dbm Abm A Abm

Verse:
Dbm
Standing at this liquor store,
Abm                             A                             B
Whisky coming through my pores, Feeling like I run this whole block.
Dbm                          Abm
Lotto tickets and cheap beer That's why you can catch me here,
A                              B
Tryna scratch my way up to the top.

Pre-Chorus:
           Dbm              Abm           A                    B
Because my job got me going nowhere, so I ain't got a thing to lose.
        Dbm                Abm                 A                      B
Take me to a place where I don't care, this is me and my liquor store blues.

Chorus:
          Dbm             Abm   A               B
I'll take one shot for my pain, One drag for my sorrow.
    Dbm         Abm          A    B
Get messed up today, I'll be ok tomorrow.
    Dbm         Abm   A               B
One shot for my pain, One drag for my sorrow.
    Dbm         Abm       A       B
Get messed up today, I'll be ok tomorrow.

Verse:
Dbm                       Abm                         
Me and my guitar tonight, singing to the city lights,
A                              B
tryna live on more than what I got.
       Dbm       Abm                       
Cause '68 Citrus ain't gonna pay the rent,
   A                                  B
so I'll be out here til they call the cops.

Pre-Chorus:
           Dbm              Abm           A                    B
Because my job got me going nowhere, so I ain't got a thing to lose.
        Dbm                Abm                 A                      B
Take me to a place where I don't care, this is me and my liquor store blues.

Chorus:
          Dbm             Abm   A               B
I'll take one shot for my pain, One drag for my sorrow.
    Dbm         Abm          A    B
Get messed up today, I'll be ok tomorrow.
    Dbm         Abm   A               B
One shot for my pain, One drag for my sorrow.
    Dbm         Abm       A       B
Get messed up today, I'll be ok tomorrow.

    Abm

  Dbm

And stand up to the big guys,
           B

    I love this song so much and was really happy when I saw that there were tabs for it. Definitely helped to take it down, as suggested in the comment bar above the lyrics.
