Here I sit with, my mind, closing in...
On a memr’y, I’ve tried, to escape...
I’m drink’n everyday, try’n to turn the page
But it keeps on, getting replayed

She’s the reason the barstool’s still around
It’s like she put, my heart, into a lost and found
No one is looking, for a heart that’s torn out
She’s the reason the barstool’s still around

I know I’m, not the first man, to wonder
Just where love, goes when it dies...
When goodbye’s the last word, that you hear...
It’s too late, so why even try....

She’s the reason the barstool’s still around
It’s like she put my heart, into a lost and found
No one is looking, for a heart that’s torn out
She’s the reason the barstool’s still around

I’ve drank my sorrows worth of whiskey
And the beer makes, this hollow chest feel fine...
I just wish she had thought things over
As I sit here fearing closing time

I drove me to drink
But I can’t make it home
I dial up her number
Then hang up the phone

If you wonder why most men
Are first into the ground
Well she’s the reason the barstool’s still around

Yes she’s the reason the barstool, is still around

I'm hearing a waltz timing to this, and I always think it's a good sign if a strong rhythm comes through in the lyric.

Agree with Alan, it's a smooth write.

My favourite was:
I drove me to drink
But I can’t make it home
I dial up her number
Then hang up the phone

I think I would say are the first in the ground. Precede is a good word but would go over most redneck heads, or might be seen as too 'uppity'

I questioned that line myself but could not think of a better way. Thought of using beat but I’m afraid it would be construed as abuse instead of actual meaning and I like the line so I don’t want to delete it. Have to see if I can come up with another word possibly. Thanks for looking.
