Lyrics

Heartbreak Saloon

Night after night
I'm singin' the same old tune
Sweet Southern Comfort
Got me spinnin, spinnin around the room
Baby you're the reason
I always sing the blues
I'm drunk on love again
At the Heartbreak Saloon

Nobody knows me
But I swear they think they do
They buy me a beer
And tell me what they've been goin through
So baby, I dedicate this lonely song to you
And to all of the broken hearts
At the Heartbreak Saloon

Where the band plays on
Where the band plays on
Where the band plays on
Play on

Never should have let you say goodbye
Never should have let you make me cry
Don't you think we gave up way too soon?
Now here I am, I'm missin you

Night after night
I'm singin the same old tune
Sweet Southern Comfort
Got me spinnin, spinnin around the room
Baby you're the reason
I always sing the blues
I'm drunk on love again
At the Heartbreak Saloon
Drunk on love again
At the heartbreak saloon...
