"Clancy's Tavern" Lyrics

Toby Keith

Playlist / 5 (0) Share Play

Any minute the 5 o'clock crowd will be coming
Taps'll be flowing with beer
The cigarette smoke is soon to be risin'
And at 5:30 Clancy gets here

She knows all their faces, she's practically
raised them
And that why they're loyal and true
They'll pay their tabs, and that pays the light bill
And she keeps their glass full of brew

And the welders and the drivers
And the old nine to fivers and the regular Joe's
of the world
Are singing here's to you Clancy and your
neighborhood tavern
Pour me another my girl

There's a waitress named Lily, shows up at 7
To make sure their service is great
And there's a black dude named Elmo that
cooks in the kitchen
Burgers & chicken fried steak

Yeah around 9 o'clock the band will start
And the music will fill up the air
Then they'll take a break every 45 minutes
And the jukebox takes over from there

Repeat Chorus

Steel Guitar & Fiddle Instrumental

It's 1:35, last call's upon us
It's time to settle the score
Won't you call me a cab and bring me a tab
And while you're at it, bring me one more

She's cleaned the last table and shined up the bar
It's late & everyone's gone
Then she'll cock her pistol and count all her money
Then drive that old Chrysler back home

Repeat Chorus

Yeah good night sweet Clancy
In your neighborhood tavern
We'll see you tommorow my girl
