Story Behind the Song

true story about an old friend

Lyrics

LOCAL HERO

By: Mike Cloonan

VERSE 1
I was sitting in a lonely bar
I was sitting by myself,
Staring at the bottles lined up neatly on the shelf.
I was thinking if they could only talk
The stories they could tell, about broken homes and cheatin? hearts
And heroes gone to hell.

VERSE 2
I was thinking back to my younger days,
As I shot a whiskey down,
A local hero local bands
I played from town to town.
I had myself a pretty wife,
We were really doing well, and our children,
Well our children, I guess they?re grown by now.

VERSE 3
I was thinking, back to how I was
How I thought I had it made.
A pretty woman sitting home while I went out and played.
I was a local hero when I walked off stage each night
I had a different woman though I knew it wasn?t right.

CHORUS
A local hero with a chitin? heart and lots of friends,
I never thought that it could ever end.
I thought that I was special and she should understand.
If she didn?t there?d be others to take my hand.

VERSE 4
When I recall the empty house, the note that I had found.
She left me for a factory man with both feet on the ground.
She said that she still loved me, but couldn?t live that way
She needed someone she could count on from day to day.

VERSE 5
Well that?s when it all came apart.
It didn?t count no more.
The other women weren?t the same
Liquor the only cure.
It?s just another story, the bottles they could tell.
I wish they would have told me before I went to hell.

REPEAT CHORUS

Well local hero with a cheatin? heart and lots of friends
You never thought that it could ever end.
When you could have been with the ones you loved in home.
A local hero with a cheatin? heart and lots of friends
I never thought that it could ever end.
