Story Behind the Song

Man distraught after being released from prison because his woman left him . Now he cant bear her seeing him messed up in bars...He slips out the back doors and sobers up over night in alleys....still a prisoner...behind bars.

Lyrics

Behind Bars #2
Two long years in the 'pen for one mistake. She told him not to worry....She would wait . When the letters stopped 'comin in... he knew it was the end . Was released a broken man with a broken heart.
Hurts too much to see her with another man. So he hides in honky tonks ..with a drink in his hand Sometimes just by chance, sees them walk in and start to dance . After too many shots...that's when he falls apart.
He can't let her see him messed up again that way Locked up in his mind... where those memories stay The only thing he sees to do ...is find a backdoor to stagger through. In the alleys he sleeps it off under neon stars. Still a prisoner... 'wakin up out there Behind bars.
He told me she reads his mind now and then. She seems to go to the dive he's 'drinkin in . No doubt she's 'havin fun....When the 'dancin has begun..... Glancing at him... as the jukebox plays.
He said one day , He would sober up... Break out of that place he's in ....Bust out of that rut. But tears still fall like rain.... He's still tied to the ball and chain 'Doin time in the shadows of a bar room haze.
He can't let her see him messed up again that way Locked up in his mind...where those memories stay . The only thing he sees to do ...is find a backdoor to stagger through. In the alleys he sleeps it off under neon stars. Still a prisoner... 'wakin up out there Behind bars.
The only thing he sees to do ...is find a backdoor to stagger through. In the alleys he sleeps it off under neon stars. Still a prisoner... 'wakin up out there Behind bars.
