In a tavern on the corner you'll find me every night
Tryin' to forget her love that didn't turn out right
My eyes just stare at nothing here I sit a broken man
With a glass on the table and your picture in my hand
A glass on the table your picture in my hand
Why I had to lose you I just don't understand
I said that I'd forget but it won't happen like I plan
With a glass on the table and your picture in my hand
[ piano - steel ]
There's a jukebox loudly playing but I never hear the song
Cause I'm staring at your picture and wondering what went wrong
Everybody's dancin' by me must wonder bout the man
With a glass on the table and a picture in his hand
A glass on the table...
