Goodbye was the very easy word for you to say
But then you never cared the way I do
Your love was all that kept me going now that it's gone
Where can I turn but to the only friends I ever knew
Going to back to bottles and barstools these are the favorite tools
Of any lonely fool who needs to forget
They tell me that friends in need are truly friends in deed
And bottles and barstools have never failed me yet
[ piano ]
Well our love can be summed up in 25 words or less
Just another flame that never made a fire
And shoulders to cry on are an easy thing to find
Just look for any set of lights that spell out b-a-are
I'm going to back to bottles and ol' barstools these are the favorite tools
For any lonely fool who needs to forget
Well they tell me that friends in need are truly friends in deed
And bottles and barstools have never failed me yet
Yes bottles and barstools ain't failed ol' Jerry Lee yet ah set me up one more
