Hope On The Rocks

Album: Hope On The Rocks (2012)
  • Brady was a baseball star
    'Til he struck out and took his car and drove away
    Sissy lost her little boy
    Hitch-hiked up to Illinois, so they say

    Then it rained so hard that Mary tried
    To take her life with suicide
    And disappear just like the thunder
    You ask around and no-one knows
    Where they went or what they do
    But you wonder, I know you wonder

    Where do they go?
    They come here
    To drown in their sorrow and cry in their beer
    They're in need of a mind-bender
    I'm a bartender
    At the end of the day
    I'm all they've got
    Hope on the rocks

    Charlie's wife filed for divorce
    And Charlie bought a quarter-horse and now he's riding fence
    Upside down and couldn't pay
    They hauled Sue's mobile home away
    And we ain't seen her since
    Larry's long time fiancé
    Got kicked out of the P.T.A.
    And moved her kids back east with someone else
    And all the ones you used to know
    Don't drop in or say hello
    But you ask yourself
    I know you ask yourself

    Where do they go?
    They come here
    To drown in their sorrow and cry in their beer
    They're in need of a mind-bender
    I'm a bartender
    At the end of the day
    I'm all they've got
    Hope on the rocks

    Where do they go?
    They come here
    To drown in their sorrow and cry in their beer
    They're in need of a mind-bender
    I'm a bartender
    At the end of the day
    I'm all they've got
    Hope on the rocks, oh oh oh yeah Writer/s: Toby Keith
