Down past the border I’m bound, another southern town
What’s mine is yours, when I’m on your shores
And tears come pouring down, on the floor they were found
Bartender, sweeping and wiping away all those sad sounds

And when you’re holding me with all of your might
And say my sweet little something, make you feel alright
I put my guitar down at the end of the night
Bartender, sweeping and wiping away all your love light

For all that it’s worth, and nothing I say,
Don’t stop the bones and the heart from aching
Your not my darling but you’re making me wait
I cry every time I drive outta this place

When the sky turns dark, that’s when there’s room in my heart
Where you can sparkle so fine, and I drink that wine
But when the dawn’s early morning tells me something ain’t right
Bartender, sweeping and wiping I’m driving til I’m out of sight

Was that eclipse of the sun, burned a hole in my drum
My wisdom had stumbled, I was coming undone.
And now my weeping’s like honey, my warbles are crumbs
Bartender sweeping and wiping away where I come from

For all that it’s worth, and nothing I say,
Don’t stop the bones and the heart from breaking
Your not my darling but you’re making me wait
I cry every time I drive outta this place
I cry everytime I drive out of this place
