The Bartender

Ten_Nights_in_a_Bar-room

A song by Gary Allan Smith

She walked into the pool hall

Eyed the bartender standing there

She eased down through the tables

Said, “Hey mister, I’ll have a cold one right here, and if you’re talking to some guy tonight with a broken heart – Lonesome at best – Send him over, I’ll let the cold ones do the rest “.

And the bartender grinned

Turned his back & popped the top

Strolled down to her table at the far end of the bar

And a thought came to his mind

And he guessed he’d be right

He may save two lonesome soul’s today – From being lonely tonight.

He walked into the pool hall

Eyed the bartender standing there

He eased onto a barstool

Said, “Hey mister, I’ll have a whiskey right here -And if you’re talking to some gal tonight with a broken heart – Lonesome at best – Point her out son I’ll let the whiskey do the rest “.

And the bartender grinned

Turned his back & poured the shot

Pointed to her table at the far end of the bar

And it never crossed his mind

If he’s wrong or he’s right

He just saved two lonesome soul’s today – From being lonely tonight.

They walked out from the pool hall

Past the bartender smiling there
