Old Red eyes is back

A7 C G

Red from the night before the night before

G A7 C G

Walked into the wrong bar walked into a door

G

Old Red's in town

A7 C G

And sitting late at night he doesn't make a sound

G A7 C G

Just adding to the wrinkles on his deadly frown

G A7 C G

They're only red from all the tears that I should've shed

G A7 C G

They're only red from all the women that I could've wed

G A7 C G

So when you look into these eyes I hope you realise

G A7

They could never be blue

C G

They could never be blue

G A7

They could never be blue

C G

They could never be blue

G

Listen up Old Red

A7 C G

You never listened to a word the doctor said

G A7 C G

He told you if you drank another you'd be dead

G

Old Red eyes is back

A7 C G

His shoulders ache all over and his brain is sore

G A7 C G

He pours a drink and listens to his body thaw

G A7 C G

They're only red from all the thoughts unused inside my head

G A7 C G

They're only red from all the things I could have done instead

G A7 C G

So when you look into these eyes I hope you realise

G A7

They could never be blue

C G

They could never be blue

G A7

They could never be blue

C G

They could never be blue

G A7 C G/B

Blue is a street without an end

G A7 C G/B

Red is the colour of my hell

G/D A7 C G/B

Blue is a greeting from a friend

G/D A7 C G

Red is the color of farewell

G

Old Red he died

A7 C G

And every single landlord in the district cried

G A7 C G

An empty bottle of whisky laying by his side

G A7 C G

A lazy little tear running from each eye

G

They could never be blue

A7 C

They could never be blue

G G

They could never be blue

A7 C G

They could never be blue
