  • It's a junked out joint off a backroad
    A blinkin' window sign with an arrow
    A gravel lot chalked full of toolbox trucks
    Makin' their happy hour way home
    When guys like me lose girls like you
    That's where we run to

    They got "Whiskey River" on the jukebox
    A honky-tonk sawdust dance floor
    A neon, five o'clock, broke clock
    And plenty damn many when you want one more
    This broke heart fool, on an old bar stool
    Drinkin' beer almost as cold as you

    A bunch of good time numbers on the stall door
    A picture of you on the dart board
    Them cinder block walls ain't ever been cleaned
    Still ain't as dirty as you done me

    "Whiskey River" on the jukebox
    A honky-tonk sawdust dance floor
    A neon, five o'clock, broke clock
    And plenty damn many when you want one more
    This broke heart fool, on an old bar stool
    Drinkin' beer almost as cold as you

    When guys like me lose girls like you
    That's where we run to

    We got "Whiskey River" on the jukebox
    A honky-tonk sawdust dance floor
    A neon, five o'clock, broke clock
    And plenty damn many when you want one more
    This broke heart fool, on an old bar stool
    Drinkin' beer almost as cold as you

    Cold as you
