Bill Monroe – The Crossroads Bar lyrics

I walked out tonight for a ramble round
I didn't mean to stay just to view the town
When I saw her smiling from afar
As she walked into that crossroads bar
Well I walked inside and sat me down
Ordered sweet red wine and I drank it down
She came and set beside me there
With a dark brown eyes and the red, red hair
I told her that I loved her true
Anything you want I'll surely do
Said a man like you don't get too far
With a girl like me at the crossroads bar
I like smoky light and a lonesome song
And I won't do right if I can do wrong
You want the moon to burn behind the darkest star
And you won't find love at the crossroads bar
Come all my friends and take my advice
Keep your love at home with your lovely wife
You're better off than you think you are
And you won't find love at the crossroads bar
