this old town

give me one more whiskey
to burn my throat
the barman is telling me
it’s nearly time to go
but i want one more chance
to see the sun going down
as i say goodbye
to this old town

i got a girl stuck to me
she’s like the shit on my shoe
she talks so sweet when she says
i wanna make love to you
but these note are all blue
and i’m listening to the sound
of a guitar playing
this old town

and one more whiskey for me
and one more tear for you
and i know we’re gonna see again
when the new morning sun comes shining through

well i’m leaving family
and I’m leaving friends
but you’ll be able to find me
i’ll be just around the bend
and a million miles south
with my sorrows all drowned
and a smile on my mouth
for this old town

and don’t cry for me my lonely
and don’t cry for me old town
don’t cry for me my lonely
don’t cry for me old town
