    Lyrics

    We were all drinking at marge's one
    night
    When an old cowboy came through the
    door
    He took a few shaky steps
    Then he started to moan
    And he keeled over right on the floor
    Doc came on over, took his stethoscope
    out
    He listened and he looked in his eyes
    He said, "Boys stick around
    I just might need your help
    I'm afraid this will be a long night"

    CHORUS
    Cause there's a five gallon tear, a five- gallon tear
    Lodged in this poor boy's heart
    By the look in his eyes he ain't cried in
    years
    And he's reatining a five gallon tear

    Doc wrote a prescription to induce him
    to cry
    It was whiskey and sad country songs
    We propped him up in a booth
    And poured a drink down his throat
    Then we turned that old wurlitzer on
    Well he spluttered and he coughed
    And he hung down his head
    As those lonely songs worked on his
    heart
    When the memories started coming six
    minutes apart

    We laid him face-up on the bar

    SECOND CHORUS
    And then a five gallon tear, a five gallon
    tear
    Slowly welled up in his eyes
    We all yelled, "Push!" and we all gave a
    cheer
    When he cried that five gallon tear

    BRIDGE
    That jar by the door don't hold pig feet
    no more
    The contents are sparkling clear
    That liquid within is not moonshine or
    gin
    It's a reminder to everyone here

    THIRD CHORUS
    Yeah, it's a five gallon tear, a five gallon
    tear
    Let this be a lesson to you
    Keep your sorrow inside for too many
    years
    And you'll cry that five gallon tear

    Buddy you'll cry
    You'll cry a five gallon tear

    Reprise: REPEAT THIRD CHORUS

    FADE
