From the recording Back to the Barroom
BACK TO THE BARROOM keeps callin',
Back to your old ways you're fallin'.
The days you thought were gone forever,
Keep haunting you and then,
You're BACK TO THE BARROOM again.
Back to the old friends who go there,
A reckless way of life without a care,
You thought it would be different
With a love that was true,
But now it's BACK TO THE BARROOM for you.
A smoke-filled room,
In dim-lit gloom,
is where you crave to be,
A bottle on the table,
And a girl upon each knee.
BACK TO THE BARROOM,
You can't change now,
Something keeps drawing you somehow,
And while it breaks my heart to say goodbye,
I know I just can't win,
For now you're BACK TO THE BARROOM again.
