George Jones Bartender's Blues" Lyrics

 

Well, I'm just a bartender

And I don't like my work

But I don't mind the money at all

I've seen lots of sad faces

And lots of bad cases

Of folks with their backs to the wall

 

[Chorus:]

But I got 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

 

Well 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

Oh and gas up my car

And I can pack up and mail in my keys

 

[Chorus:]

But I got 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

Of this honky tonk bar

And I'm thinkin' bout where I'd rather be

But I burned all my bridges

And I sunk all my ships

And I'm stranded at the edge of the sea

 

[Chorus:]

But I got 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...
