Kingston Trio – Longest Beer Of The Night lyrics

Carson Parks

This is the longest beer of the night and in the East I think I see some light,
And pretty soon I know the sun will shine and I know a bar that opens promptly at nine? At nine.

I guess two six-packs wasn't enough 'cause right about now the goin' really gets rough
And some early bird is happy callin' his mate and I wish I knew a bar that opened promptly at eight.

Maybe I was just a fool thinkin' I could drown you outa my mind but the longest part of the day is just before nine? Before nine.

I can see the dew that's settlin' onto the ground and if I'm not careful your mem'ry's gonna come 'round
And that's the reason I just gotta stay tight, so I'm just nursin' the longest beer of the night.
Yeah, I'm nursin' the longest beer of the night.
