John Worsham: Music

Old man at the bar

(John Worsham)

Last night at my favorite place to be

There was a pretty girl who I thought was looking at me

But the guy behind me was who she was trying to see

Not this old man at the bar

 

I used to laugh at all those middle-aged guys

Who used to hang out trying to womanize

But perhaps I was too quick to criticize

Cause now I'm that old man at the bar

 

Chorus:

When I was young, I was such a handsome lad

But I didn't have a penny to my name

Now I’m so much older and I’m looking so bad

I got all this money, but no women – It’s such a shame

 

Back in the day I used to try too hard

Chasing girls up and down the boulevard

When all I needed was a platinum credit card

I'm just an old man at the bar  (verse lead & chorus)

 

Feel like a dusty old book up on a shelf

Not loved or cared for by anyone else

So if you need me, I'll be all by myself

Hiding somewhere in the dark,

Just an old man at the bar
