Bartender's Blues Lyrics

Now I'm just a bartender

And I don't like my work

But I don't mind the money at all

 

I see lots of sad faces

And lots of bad cases

Folks with their backs to the wall

But I need four walls around me

To hold my life

To keep me from going astray

And a honky-tonk angel

To hold me tight

To keep me from slipping away

I can light up your smokes

I can laugh at your jokes

I can watch you fall down on your knees

 

I can close down this bar

I can gas up my old car

I can pack up and mail in the key

But I need four walls around me

To hold my life

To keep me from going astray

 

And a honky-tonk angel

To hold me tight

To keep me from slipping away

 

Now the smoke fills the air

In this honky-tonk bar

And I'm thinking about where I'd rather be

 

But I burned all my bridges

And I sank all ships

Now I'm stranded at the edge of the sea

 

I still need four walls around me

To hold my life

To keep me from going astray

And a honky-tonk angel to hold me tight

To keep me from slipping away
