Nat Stuckey – Joe And Mabel's 12th Street Bar And Grill lyrics

Joe and Mabel's 12th St. Bar and Grill

The kids say, "Daddy, where did you meet mother?"
Well, I can't tell them and I never will.
I can't tell them that we met each other
Down at Joe and Mabel's twelfth street bar and grill.

I used to find you down there every weekend,
But when we wed I thought you'd had your fill,
But here lately you've begun to frequent
Joe and Mabel's twelfth street bar and grill.

There's an Ajax beer sign hanging from the window
And there're men behind those walls of sin
Who'll drag you down again!
I can't understand why you get such a thrill
Down at Joe and Mabel's twelfth street bar and grill.
