"Smoky The Bar" lyrics

Smoky The Bar

Smoky the bar
Lights dimly glow
It's good that way
Cause heartaches don't show

Each hand holds a glass
Each glass holds a beer
Jukebox records play
Amid sorrow and cheer

Lots of them are happy
They laugh and tell their jokes
While lots of them are here
Because they're just lonely folks

And then there are others
Whose hearts wear a scar
But you can't see them crying
It's old smoky the bar

Smoky the bar
Lights glowing dim
They hardly notice when
Someone walks in

Order up your drink
To the music that's loud
You'll find a friend
Somewhere in the crowd

While the ashes are falling
From the smoke that you inhale
There's an old dream to recall
Or a new one that failed

Should a tear betray your eye
If a memory slips too far
Don't tell them that you're crying
Just say, "Smoky the bar"

While the ashes are falling
From the smoke that you inhale
There's an old dream to recall
Or a new one that failed

Should a tear betray your eye
If a memory slips too far
Don't tell them that you're crying
Just say, "Smoky the bar"

It's so smoky the bar
