Album:  Box Set #1
Transcribed by:  Jeremy Powers

Capo 1st Fret

Verse 1
A                  F#m
Nickles and dimes, memories and wine
D                      E
She's on his mind once again
A                       F#m
The same ole' stew, the same ole' fool
D                              E
Played by the rules but didn't win
Bm                         E
There's an old love in his heart that he can't lose
Bm                         E
He tried forgettin' but he knows that it's no use

           A    E       D
He's got a fool hearted memory
         Bm                E
It won't let him see, that she walked out the door
           A    E       D               Bm
He's got a fool hearted memory, he sits patiently 
           E                        A
Here every night so it can fool him more

Verse 2
A                 F#m
She was his girl, his only world
D                                  E
That string of pearls that slipped away
A                 F#m
A thousand dimes, a thousand times
D                         E
He doesn't mind what they say
Bm                         E
He fills the jukebox, then plays the same ole' song
Bm                             E
He fills his glass and then he turns her memory on

repeat chorus
