Spinning Round

Thirty years in this saloon
Round here time don’t move
The jukebox plays a tune and I sing out loud
And the world just won’t stop spinning round

Midnight and I’m drinking fast
Heartache fills my glass
Just more time for me to pass living in this town
And the world just won’t stop spinning round

This world just won’t stop spinning
Or maybe it’s just my bed
I don’t know maybe it’s my ceiling
Or maybe it’s just my head
I sit here on my drunkards throne
I wear the drunkard’s crown
It only takes one shot or two
And this world starts spinning round

Lights flicker and it’s last call
My beer is ten feet tall
There’s no time for me to stall better drink it on down
And the world just won’t stop spinning round

Morning now is coming on
The wind cry’s a lonesome song
The trees they sing along to that awful sound
And the world just won’t stop spinning round

My love I could not save
I walk now past her grave
I kneel down and I pray then kiss the ground
And the world just won’t stop spinning round

Been to hell and back again
Always going against the wind
This bottle is the only friend that I got now
And the world just won’t stop spinning round
