G
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
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

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
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

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
