About This Song


Once a month, an older man goes to his usual bar or club, has his usual drinks, and listens to his favorite music, i.e., country music. He thinks back to times in his past that, though not necessarily all good, were better than other times.

A Little Taste of the...

Written by Walter Lamberg

Verse 1
[D] I ain’t lookin’ for no trouble, ain’t wantin’ to make a scene
By [A] getting drunk, starting a fight, that ain’t my kind a thing.
I’ll [D] have a couple draft beers and take it nice and easy,
And [A] call it a night with one or two shots of fine whiskey.
I nod, say, Uh huh,” that’s good enough for [A] me. [A7]

Pre-Chorus 1
Then I [G] get up from the bar, put a couple quarters in the jukebox,
Play some Waylon and Patsy [A] Cline [A7] ‘cause:

Chorus
I’m [G] here for a little [A] taste of the better [D] times.
Man, I’m tired, but I ain’t ready to head home.
Ain’t no one [G] waitin’, ain’t [A] no one gonna [D] worry
If I have me another one.
You see, I’m just [G] lookin’ to put some ease to my troubles.
[G] I’m here for a little [A] taste of the better [D] times.

D A em G

Verse 2
This place is kinda quiet, but tonight that’s okay by me.
Sometimes when I got the mis’ries, I don’t want no company.
Oh, but here’s this guy wants to talk, he’s in my face.
Got some kinda mood on, he’s mad at the human race.
I nod, say, “Uh huh,” wish he’d just go away.

Pre-Chorus 2
So I get up from the bar, put a couple quarters in the jukebox,
Play Josh Turner and LeAnn Rimes ‘cause:

Chorus Repeat

Bridge
I close my eyes, do a little day dreaming.
[bm] Damn, don’t that music sound real fine. [A] See . . . [A7]

Chorus Repeat

Tag
Yeah, I’m [G] here for a little [A] taste of the better [D] times.
