Bubbles in My Beer
Words and Music by Tommy Duncan, Cindy Walker and Bob Wills
Tonight in a bar alone I’m sittin’
Apart from the laughter and the cheer
While scenes from the past rise before me,
Just watching the bubbles in my beer.
I’m seeing the road that I’ve traveled,
A road paved with heartaches and tears,
And I’m seeing the past that I’ve wasted
While watching the bubbles in my beer.
A vision of someone who loved me,
Brings a lone silent tear to my eye
As I think of the heart that I’ve broken
And the golden chances that have passed me by.
Oh I know that my life’s been a failure,
I’ve lost everything that made life dear,
And the dreams I once made now are empty,
As empty as the bubbles in my beer.
