The barroom atmosphere really brings my heart no cheer
Watchin' bubbles in my beer don't ease my mind
It just helps to keep the hurt from hurting
Like I keep hurting since you're no longer mine.

The jukebox songs I play don't make heartaches go away
Or the pretty girls I pay to pass the time
They just help to kee the hurt from hurting
Like I keep hurting since you're no longer mine.

And so if ever you should ask what happened to
Your old use to be darlin' meanin' me
And they say that I've become a sort of barroom bum
Well maybe so but what do they know.

If just a drink or two cools the hell I'm goin' through
'Cause I'm still in love with you then please be kind
It just helps to keep the hurt from hurting
Like I keep hurting since you're no longer mine.

--- Instrumental ---

And they say that I've become a sort of barroom bum
Well maybe so but what do they know.

If just a drink or two cools the hell I'm goin' through
'Cause I'm still in love with you then please be kind
It just helps to keep the hurt from hurting
Like I keep hurting since you're no longer mine...
