Words and music by Erik Walters


Sad songs in quiet bars
A welcome place for those
Who didn't get too far
Ain't judged by what they do
But by who they are
Another round for lonely hearts
Inside this quiet bar

Sad songs in quiet bars
A broken cash machine
The beer and bleach soaked floors
There's old Joe's empty seat
They framed his eulogy
Below the busted neon sign
Above the bathroom door
A shrine to the old drunk
That they all adored

When it's dark outside
In here it's never cold
They fill their glasses high
And laugh while they get old
Ask if you've heard their story
You have but you say no
They've led a long life
And it's all they have to show
They've led a long life
And they want someone to know

So tip your hat and raise your beer
To all of us still standing here
I hope the way back home ain't far
Time for one last song inside this quiet bar

One last song
One last song
