Barstool Lyrics

Barstool by Gary Jules  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Barstool (Intro Music) 1,2,3,4,5,6 (More Intro Music)

Old Man on a Bar Stool
Watching tv
He got up and came over to sit closer to me
He said you look familiar
To someone I knew
But when we were your age we were older than you
Jimmy was 20
And I 17
To us there was nothing but girls and machines
Jimmy got married
And i went to war
I still don't know what we were doing it for
And if you'll buy me a drink
A turkey all nice
Then i could give you some advice

You just stay in the bar
for as long as you can
Cos' as long as your drinking
then you've got the world in your hand

There's no shame in hanging
the world by a string
You know there's no harm in not thinking a thing
Trying to find a place for yourself in this world
is like trying to make a wife of an American girl
And if you'll trade me a drink
for a story or two
then you'll know what you need to do

You just stay in the Bar
For as long as you can
No love is for sissy's
it's wisky that make you a man
Yeah
(Musical Interlude)

Now the old man got up
Stumbled out in the street
Been drinking all day left his Bar tab with me
I didn't have the money
To cover his bill
Oh i found me a man looked like me younger still 'n' I said
Buy me a drink
And I'll tell you a tale
About the old man who taught me so what

Who said
Stay in the Bar
For as long as you can
Well i know your a friend I can tell by the shades in your hand

You just
Stay in the Bar
For as long as you dare
As long as you tipping
then you've got a good friend somewhere

(Outro Music)
