Lyrics
Dark Tavern Blues
I play the late night shift at 3rd and Lincoln
For fifty bucks and tips I keep 'em drinkin'
Looking for lost chords that I find then lose
I always have these Dark Tavern Blues

I wonder what it's like in them sky scrapers
Goin' to work at nine pushin' pens and papers
Well midnight's come and gone but I'm still pushin' tunes
I always have these Dark Tavern Blues

Don't know why I do it night after night
Something draws me to it like a moth to light
The only life I know is these smoky rooms
I always have these Dark Tavern Blues

She wrote her number down on this bar room napkin
I called when I hit town but nothin' happened
It's closin' time no one to tell my troubles too
I always have these Dark Tavern Blues
I always have these Dark Tavern Blues
