He sat in the corner supping his drink
Lonely all on his own
His dog lay by his side all night
Chewing on his ragged bone.
How did he become a man in solitude?
Not a friend to his name
Others playing cards around him
No one offers him a game.
The barmaid leans on the old bar top
Glancing around her domain
Wondering what it would have been like
If she had found her fame.
A beautiful woman twenty years ago
A chance to be an actress so fine
But her life became engulfed with vice,
gambling ,and fine wine.
Lost her looks now, thinking about
A past that was rosy and secure
Knowing when she was just seventeen
Her life was comfortable and pure.
The lonely man stands and beckons his dog
To move to the door and go home
But first they venture out for a walk
And around the streets they roam.
The barmaid rings her bell on the bar
And points to the clock on the wall
Another night over in her quiet little inn
for the last time she lets out her call.
The card game ends the men all leave
With women following hand in hand
The smoke begins to clear ,atmosphere normal
Thinking the night was just grand.
Main lights out the jukebox quiet
She collects glasses and sweeps the floor
Her lot is a happy one her life is complete
As she hurries towards the door.
