Text písně Barstool

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 on ice ***********Instead of "A Turkey all nice," Wild turkey is a hard liquor********** 
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 
(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
