Lyrics

Chivalry Blues

Written By: Joe Moore

It's a single drop of water in the ashtray
the salty taste of tears in the wine
It's a pile of broken bones in a
pin striped suit
and the sting of alcohol in my eye

yeah, well in the late hours of the day I've got some things to say that require your attention
and I swear it won't take long 'cause I can't stay
But if you help me get on my feet, I'll hold the door
'cause chivalry ain't dead, babe
it's just passed out on the floor

We can sit around and talk about our feelings
I'll help you make some sense of your pain
But that little drop of blood up on the ceiling, darling
might be kind of hard to explain

Yeah, well in the late hours of the day I've got some things to say that require your attention
And I swear it won't take long
'cause I can't stay
But if you help me get on my feet
well, I'll hold the door
cause chivalry ain't dead, babe
it's just passed out on the floor

(repeat chorus)
