Bar at the End of the World

Album: Cosmic Hallelujah (2016)
Charted: 92
  • There's a trail of smoke comin' out of a bottle
    If you look real close, you can see it right there
    A little tin roof bar down a path you have to follow
    From a treasure map with the edges burnt from a few too many beers

    We'll pull the ropes off the boat
    We'll throw 'em up on the dock
    We'll let the stars be our God
    No we don't need no clock

    We'll set sail
    Yeah, I see you there wind in your hair and that t-shirt on
    Dead man tell no tales
    It's like nowhere else
    You've ever been and we'll write your name on a dollar bill
    Put it on a wall it'll still be there
    Next time we come back girl, to the bar at the end of the world

    In that old sea shell, you can hear the ocean
    You can hear the waves crash whisper in your ear
    A little glow in the night, it's the last place open
    And the house drink is a beautiful thing called 'make me disappear'

    We'll pull the ropes off the boat
    We'll throw 'em up on the dock
    We'll let the stars be our God
    No we don't need no clock

    We'll set sail
    Yeah, I see you there wind in your hair and that t-shirt on
    Dead man tell no tales
    It's like nowhere else
    You've ever been, we'll write your name on a dollar bill
    Put it on a wall it'll still be there
    Next time we come back girl, to the bar at the end of the world

    There ain't no empty glasses, they're playing drift away
    That's where the magic happens, back up in that little bay

    We'll set sail
    Yeah, I see you there wind in your hair and that t-shirt on
    Dead man tell no tales
    It's like nowhere else
    You've ever been, we'll write your name on a dollar bill
    Put it on a wall it'll still be there
    Next time we come back girl, to the bar at the end of the world
    To the bar at the end of the world
    The end of the world Writer/s: J.T Harding, Aimee Mayo, David Lee Murphy
