Lyrics

Charley's Pub

Written By: Robert Reasor

When you get home after work
Your girl isn’t there
There’s a note by the chair
It says she’s had enough
She’s leaving you
She’s found someone new
You head down to Charley’s Pub
And you get you greeting
When everyone starts singing

Everything will turnout fine
Just have yourself a lovely time
At Charley’s Pub

Charley greets you with a smile
He gives you a wink
And then he fixes a drink
He says, “Hey lad what’s with the long face?”
And then he begins pouring
As you tell him the story
He says, “Just sip your troubles away.”
“Your heart may feel empty
But the bottle is plenty, and…”

Everything will turnout fine
Just have yourself a lovely time
At Charley’s Pub

When you feel you’re at the end
Just come on over and we’ll be your friend
At Charley’s Pub

The waitress starts to give you the eye
But you turn up your nose
And she turns and she goes
But after a couple of drinks
She catches your eye
When she walks on by
You tell her its love at first site
And she says, “I get off at two,
Won’t you please take me home with you and…”

Everything will turnout fine
Just have yourself a lovely time
At Charley’s Pub

When you feel you’re at the end
Just come on over and we’ll be your friend
At Charley’s Pub

Everything is gonna be alright
Everything little thing is gonna be alright
At Charley’s Pub

Everything is gonna be alright
Everything little thing is gonna be alright
At Charley’s Pub

So come on in, come on in
Come on in, come on in to Charley’s

Come on in, come on in
Come on in, come on in to Charley’s

Here Lies

Written By: Robert Reasor

Here lies the way I feel for you

And all the lies I thought were true

I’m such a fool to trust in you

But I guess that’s what fools do

Trust in you

Here lies beginnings of the end

You’ve lost the meaning of a friend

I thought on you I could depend

But all I can depend on

Is the end

I’ve taken enough abuse

You’ve gotten your last use

I guess my lesson is finally learned

Say you’re too much of a coward to talk

But you can stab me in the back and walk

Well this time my back isn’t turned

Here lies another heart in pain

Another love you gave in vain

The only thing you love is to gain

And all you ever give

Is pain

I’ve taken enough abuse

You’ve gotten your last use

I guess my lesson is finally learned

Say you’re too much of a coward to talk

But you can stab me in the back and walk

Well this time my back isn’t turned

Oh, this time my back isn’t turned

Here lies the way I feel for you

And all the lies I thought were true

I’m such a fool to trust in you

But I guess that’s what fools do

Trust in you

Cynthia

Written By: Robert Reasor

Please don’t say that you’re leavin’

Don’t set your heart on the run

You say we’re goin’ nowhere

But you don’t realize how far we have come

Cynthia

Cynthia

Please don’t go

Cynthia

Cynthia

Breaks my heart

Every time

Please don’t leave me

Behind

Cynthia

Cynthia

How can you know where we’re goin’

Why can’t you see where we’ve been

Everyone has their valleys

Don’t you know that every day can’t be a mountain

Cynthia

Cynthia

Please don’t go

Cynthia

Cynthia

Breaks my heart

Every time

Please don’t treat me

Unkind

Cynthia

Cynthia

Give me one more act for the show

There’s a happy end don’t you know

My Cynthia

My sweet Cynthia

Cynthia

Cynthia

Please don’t go

Cynthia

Cynthia

Breaks my heart

Every time

‘Cause when I was lost

I could always find

Cynthia

Cynthia, oh

Cynthia
