Smokey The Bar
recorded by Hank Thompson
written by Jet Penix and Hank Thompson
C                           F
Smokey the bar lights dimly low
     G7                                   C
It’s good that way cause heartaches don’t show
Each hand holds a glass  each glass holds a beer
                G7                   C
Jukebox records play amid sorrow and cheer
F                G7         C
Lots of them are happy they laugh and tell their jokes
      D7                                    G7
While lots of them are here because they’re just lonely folks
    C                                         F
And then there are others whose hearts wear a scar
                       G7                         C
But you can’t see them crying it’s old Smokey the bar
Smokey the bar lights glowing dim
            G7                        C
They hardly notice when someone walks in
Order up your drink to the music that’s loud
              G7                      C
You’ll find a friend somewhere in the crowd
F                   G7               C
While the ashes are falling from the smoke that you inhale
        D7                          G7
There’s an old dream to recall or a new one that failed
         C                                       F
Should a tear betray your eye if memory slips to far
                            G7                         C
Don’t tell them that you’re crying just say Smokey the bar
Repeat last verse
