lyrics

She left me high and dry then they lowered the bar on me and ever since they did, I cant seem to leave. I don't care about the jukebox or the sports of the TV but I just cant seem to get up since they lowered the bar on me.

If her expectations had been as low as she left me. Maybe I wouldnt be here mixing beer with agony. I thought things were looking up but I must have let her down. Now I am livin in a honky tonk on the shady side of town.

Ive seen the bottom of this bottle 100 times and it always looks the same and it always looks the same. I'll have another and I swear to my own mother I won't even remember your name.

I guess it aint as bad as I make it out to be, there's what his name the bartender to keep me company. The waitress sure is friendly she treats me like a king, cos I can finally tip good since I pawned our wedding rings.
