Smokey The Bar recorded by Hank Thompson written byJet Penix and Hank Thompson C
F Smokey the bar lights dimly low
C It’s good that way cause heartaches don’t show
F Each hand holds a glass each glass holds a beer
C Jukebox records play amid sorrow and cheer F
G7 C Lots of them are happy they laugh and tell their jokes
G7 While lots of them are here because they’re just lonely folks
F And then there are others whose hearts wear a scar
C But you can’t see them crying it’s old Smokey the bar
F Smokey the bar lights glowing dim
C They hardly notice when someone walks in
F Order up your drink to the music that’s loud
C You’ll find a friend somewhere in the crowd F
C While the ashes are falling from the smoke that you inhale
G7 There’s an old dream to recall or a new one that failed
F Should a tear betray your eye if memory slips to far
C Don’t tell them that you’re crying just say Smokey the bar Repeat last verse
