The Bar at 8th & Main
By John Hickman
I met you in a dingy bar
At the corner of 8th and Main.
I saw right through your lovely eyes
And didn稚 ask your name.
We both had just one thing in mind
To chase those blues away
And knew we壇 follow separate roads
Come the dawn of day.
We slipped out through the crowded room
Together you and me.
Anticipation in our minds
Of what this night could be.
We met like two ships sailing through
A cold and lonely storm,
Brought our lives together
To let passions keep us warm.
Now its likely you値l remember
That bar at 8th and Main.
But I doubt for a moment
That you値l chance to call my name.
It was only one short night of love
And seems so long ago
But the feelings that remain in me
I guess you値l never know.
I thought about just going back
And waiting patiently.
But the fear of seeing you
With someone else keeps haunting me.
I壇 like to think this soon will pass
And I値l forget the pain
But I never will forget that bar
On the corner of 8th and Main.
Now its likely you値l remember
The bar at 8th and Main.
But I doubt for a moment
That you値l chance to call my name.
It was only one short night of love
And seems so long ago
But the feelings that remain in me
I guess you値l never know.
But the feelings that remain in me
I guess you値l never know.
