This old smoke filled bar is somethin' I'm not used to
But I gave up my home to see you satisfied
And I just called to let you know where I'll be livin'
It's not much but I feel welcome here inside

And I've got swingin' doors a jukebox and a barstool
And my new home has a flashin' neon sign
Stop by and see me anytime you want to
'Cause I'm always here at home 'til closin' time

I've got everythin' I need to drive me crazy
I've got everythin' it takes to lose my mind
And in here the atmosphere's just right for heartaches
Thanks to you I'm always here 'til closin' time

And I've got swingin' doors a jukebox and a barstool
And my new home has a flashin' neon sign
Stop by and see me anytime you want to
'Cause I'm always here at home till closin' time

Yeah, I'm always here at home till closin' time
