Lyrics

THIS BAR
© 2006 Craig Stewart
G D
Sittin’ in the Central, think I’ll have another beer
G C
It’s another picture perfect day outside, but I’d rather stay right here
G D C
Among those that ain’t stopped searching, and those who couldn’t care anymore

G D
And they’re all familiar faces, though I’ve never been around
G C
But I’ve soothed the scars on the end of bars in a hundred different towns
G D
With each day I’m feeling older, and it’s getting me down
G C
But I tell myself you’re somewhere else just waiting in the crowd

CHORUS
C D G
This bar, will keep me out there searchin’
C D G
This drink, will help to heal the hurtin,
C D G
This time, could be the one for certain,
C D G C G C
That you walk in through that door, and it won’t have to be this way anymore….

Yeah, I’ve tasted life’s excesses, I’ve sorted right from wrong
But a man can only stand and watch his plans go down so long
So I think I’ll just keep drinking, ‘till I can’t feel the pain anymore

So stand and charge your glasses, for I propose a toast
To long lost love, and those above who’ve paid the price the most
Now it’s gettin’ close to closin’, so I’ll me movin’ on
To another town, and another round, as I sing myself this song

(CHORUS)

SOLO Em C G D (X2)
