Country Bars & A Singerís Pride
Author: ShyHeart


Iíve been singing songs, in country bars,
since I was, seventeen.
Dim light and all that smoke,
hell, I canít, even see my selfÖ,

The waitress moves by memory,
from the tables to the bar
She knows everybodyís name,
from BudÖ, to Lone Star.

I hear the fight, thatís goin on,
the bouncerís crackn headsÖ,
My, guitar donít mean a thing,
Just, a bar-room, distraction

The parking lot is full of trucks,
And men, who have had enough
Then, the waitress, hands me a note,
bout a limousine, out front.

Seems, that someone, heard my songs,
but their afraid to come insideÖ,?
They want to talk, about my songs
and, a new, way of lifeÖ,

Canít believe Iím standing here,
with a limousine, just outsideÖ,
But, Iíve never walked out on a gig,
and a singerÖ, has his pride.

Paints a picture of a familiar.......

Hey, Martin! This one paints a picture of a familiar scene, has a story and a little drama to it. It took me back to some places I've been through. It leaves some to the imagination, too! Thanks! Keep Rockin'!
