As I walked into a run down bar
The sign said a one man band
He was sittin' on top of a bar stool
A guitar held in his hand
And the lines he was singing 'bout a memory ringin'
I heard this old broken down star
Singing women and whiskey you know they will get you
Some day I'll get out of these bars

Chorus:
Some day I'll get out Some day I'll get out
Won't fight no more honky tonk wars
I'll find a song, and it won't take too long
Until I get out of these bars

Well I sat there drinking and dreaming and thinking
Of a time not too long ago
With those bars all around me, and those grey walls that bound me
And the years that went by too slow
And the songs that I sang to the blue sky above me
As I walked in that big prison yard
Singing women and whiskey you know they will get you
Some day I'll get out of these bars

Chorus

Well I paid for my drink and walked over to where
He was singing his lonesome song
I said we're a lot a like guitar man you and I
But your sentence is way too long
"Some day I'll get out" he began to shout
As I walked toward that open bar door
I'll find a song, and it won't take too long
Until I get out of these bars
