Now broken hearted people always seem to drink
Tryin' to drown those sorrows ain't as easy as you think
But living with a liar is a hard old way to go
Laughin' just to keep from crying ain't no way to grow old
So take me to a barroom driver set me on a stool
If I can't be her man I'm damned if I'll be her fool
They say that whiskey ain't the best way but then I ain't too smart
To think I just found out she was lying from the start
So if this is nothin' but a bad joke looking for a laugh
Well hold on to your lampshade darling cause I'm looking for a hat
And you take me to a barroom...
[ guitar ]
So get this taxi movin' because I got no time to lose
There's no time to be choosy any old bar will do
Now I'm looking to get silly and I'm looking to get loose
And if that don't get it done darlin' I'll come looking for you
Oh now take me to a barroom...
Take me to a barroom...
