"On the Back Row" as written by Norris D Wilson and Jerry Chesnut....
Here I sit on the back row in a church down the street
Not to far from the place where we used to meet
And to find me gettin' though till you found someone to love
But I'll go back to the place that I keep thinking of.

It's not a fancy place just a tavern in the lonely part of town
Where lonely people find someone that hopes to settle down
They tell me to go and I can't understand
Here I sit on the back row while you wed another man.

You'd never dream but after many years I may still be sittin' there
With just a bottle and two glasses right next to your favorite chair
All alone you might not give him and he might tell you wrong
There I'll sit in a tavern waitin' for you all alone.

And it's not a fancy place just a tavern in the lonely part of town
Where lonely people find someone and hopes to settle down
They tell me to go and I can't understand
Here I sit on the back row while you wed another man
