    Give this a try. I'm not sure if all the words are correct... I wrote them down from the youtube video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9y6L4SjZu0

    He is doing it in the key of G. I am showing it with Capo on 5th fret so I can show the D-chord progression that you want. That way you can play along with the video. If you want to sing it yourself in the key of D, just take the capo off, of course.

    It Took A Lot of Drinking – Moe Bandy

    Capo 5th fret

    [D] Whiskey nights and [Bm] jukebox lights and [G] honky-tonkin’ friends
    And [A] hangin’ out from dusk till dawn and [G] softly sleepin’ [D] in
    [D] Lies were told, life [Bm] took it’s toll and [G] brought love to it’s knees
    But it took a lot of [D] drinkin’ to get that [A] woman over [D] me

    She [A] never turned a [G] bottle up and I [D] never turned one down
    She gave [E] me a thousand chances but I [G] took them all down [A] town
    It [D] broke her heart, tore [Bm] her apart, to [G] make me a memory
    But it took a lot of [D] drinkin’ to get that [A] woman over [D] me // // // //

    [D]// // [Bm]// // [G]// // // //
    [G]// // [D]// // [A]// // [D]// // // //

    [D] She tried love, then [Bm] she got tough, but [G] nothing changed my mind
    The [A] bottle was my weakness, I was [G] livin’ whiskey [D] time
    Now it’s too late and [Bm] my heart’s payin’ for the [G] things I should have seen
    But it took a lot of [D] drinkin’ to get that [A] woman over [D] me

    She [A] never turned a [G] bottle up and I [D] never turned one down
    She gave [E] me a thousand chances but I [G] took them all down [A] town
    It [D] broke her heart, tore [Bm] her apart, to [G] make me a memory
    But it took a lot of [D] drinkin’ to get that [A] woman over [D] me
    Yes, it [G] took a lot of [D] drinkin’ to get that [A] woman over [G] meeeee-[D]-e

    Hi gary; my buddy was over this afternoon to put my pontoon boat in the water ( as we live along a river) and then we jammed for about four hours. we tried that mo Bandy song again and he agreed the chords were right but it sounds better in the key of G because you step down from G to E minor whereas when we do it in D it doesn't sound right from D to B minor but he fixed that by stepping up to the B minor in a different way; as I said before he is a great picker ; and I am basically a chord playing fella ( not apolyagising just saying ) so now when he backs me up it sounds much better.

    Hey Joe,
    I hope you bet a beer or two on the chords. The G to Em always sounds good!
    I just turned 65 a short while ago and, unfortunately, my old fingers are arthritic now so I can't pick as well as I did when I was a young fella, although I really wasn't that great back then. My old ears, however, are pretty good at hearing the chords in a song.
    Here is a little bit of picking you might enjoy (or not... lol). I did this last year while teaching my nephew's kid a few things on the guitar. The video says it all. NOTE: The sound doesn't start until the dancing starts.

    Gary , You totally amaze me. God has given you a wonderful gift and your willingness to share and give to others. I would have given up along time ago if not for you. Maybe some day we will cast a few flys together.

    Thanks Joe. I guess Arth Ritus and I will be a duo from now on.
    The big 65 eh! It gets here fast doesn't it!

    Gary & Joe:
    Here is another little tune that Arth and I did this morning. I was having a coffee and decided to plug my acoustic-electric in and do a bit of easy strumming to exercise my fingers. I think I hear bits of Beautiful, Beautiful Brown Eyes at a few places.

    Really nice Gary, Speaking of Arth , He's been hanging around my house for quite now. I turned 68 in April. Which makes this ole slide guitar a bit more interesting. Ive learned a lot of songs and the left hand is pretty happy
