J.D. Souther - Til The Bars Burn Down lyrics

Well the sun is sinkin' and people start thinkin' at twilight
Tell me what can I do till a quarter of two to feel alright
Well, somebody's always playin'..down at the Hoorah Range
And a whole lotta women a dancin' and drinkin', just a swingin'

I'll be there ... 'till the bars burn down
I gotta a chair.. 'till the bars burn down
I'm gonna stare ... 'till the bars burn down
I'll be there until the bars burn down

Ah, it's ten after five and I see ten other guys with the same thought
Well they'd love to go out but they'll probably go home 'cause they'd get caught
Later on you see 'em tip toin' up the stairway carryin' a woman in shoes

On their way to wastin' a lot of good conversation and booze

I'll be there ... 'till the bars burn down
I gotta a chair..till the bars burn down
I'm gonna stare ... 'till the bars burn down
I'll be there until the bars burn down

Tell me why if women get lonely just like men, how come you never can find them then?
How come you gotta go down there again and again

I'll be there until the bars burn down
'Til the bars burn down
Until the bars burn down
I'll be there until the bars burn down

I gotta find me a honey if it costs me all my money and then some
I come down here too much to go home without having some real fun
Well you can even leave it all tomorrow and still not be in love
You got a family man and there ain't no place like home

I'm going home

(REPEAT CHORUS, AD LIB, AND FADE)
