Song Description

Mandolin performance by John Jorgensen and other professional musicians (www.amg.com) shows the great story line taking place in a local bar with a positive ending.

Story Behind the Song

Nikki Hornsby wrote this song from observations and gave it a cha cha beat to show how we can move on even when cheated upon. Thought of as a great visual story for a video or short film.

Lyrics

4/4 Country ChaCha
KEY: C - D LEAD GUITAR INTRO F C G C F C

IT WAS A QUARTER OF NINE ON A SUMMER'S NIGHT AS I DROVE TO OUR LOCAL BAR

AS I WALKED IN CHARLEY GAVE ME A GRIN AS HE SAT MY DRINK ON THE BAR

AND THE WAITRESS MARIE KINDA SMILED AT ME

AS I LOOKED OUT ACROSS THE ROOM

THEN YOU WALKED IN MY HEART TOOK A SPIN

AS THE JUKEBOX PLAYED THIS TUNE

WORKIN ON A SHOESTRING AND A PRAYER

HOPIN THAT YOU'D STILL CARE

FOR SOMEONE LIKE ME LOVIN SOMEONE LIKE YOU

FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE

NOW EVEN CHARLEY COULD SEE WHAT YOU WERE DOIN TO ME
AS YOU LOOKED MY WAY THE MUSIC WOULD PLAY THE SAME MELODY

WORKIN ON A SHOESTRING AND A PRAYER....
(INSTRAMENTAL INTO MOD. UP)

NOW MY HOPE HAS JUST DIED IN WALKS THIS GIRL TO YOUR SIDE
WITH A RING ON HER HAND YOU ARE HER MAN & NOW MY HEART CRIES

WORKIN ON A SHOESTRING AND A PRAYER I KNOW EVERYTHING IN LIFE'S NOT FAIR

BUT I'LL TURN THIS AROUND WITH MY FEET ON THE GROUND AND GO ON WITH MY LIFE

I WILL TURN THIS AROUND WITH MY FEET ON THE GROUND AND GO ON WITH MY LIFE.
