Down the Bar from Me

Two fellers talkin bout women
Two fellers talkin bout drink
A woman & a man a shoutin
about how people ought to think
The bartender stands silent
Watchin it all go by
Hank Williams on the jukebox
so lonesome he could cry.
Down the bar from me
Down the bar from me
The whole world turns & burns & yearns
Down the bar from me.
One man sez his wife was never no good
and his son ain’t doin the very best he could
A sailor just swaggered thru the door
And one old lady is dancing around the floor.
A big guy with a tattoo
shows his bullet scar
Jesus Christ how I love the life
& the things I try to learn
in this little old bar.
