I come to the bar to be alone
I think of this tavern as my second home
Away from my kids and wife
I imagine a better life
I come to the bar to be alone

My old friends sometimes ask me where I've gone
And wonder why I won't join them for a little fun
But I can't stand the cocktail crowd
My old haunts, they just haunt me now
I come to the bar to be alone

I need anhour of solace for my own
When this old world tries to get me down
I order a glass of beer
I find cold comfort here
I come to the bar to be alone

Sometimes the other barflies try to strike up a conversation
They can't understand what keeps me coming back
It's not the women or the booze:
It's the solitude
I come to the bar to be alone
