lyrics

At 12 in the afternoon
He's already high as the moon
drinking at his favorite dive bar

his family thinks he's a slob
cause every since he lost his job
he doesn't get very far

there are no words that explain
his darkest pain


and now he's stuck there

drinkin' away, he's drinkin' away all his problems
at a dive bar, a dive bar off main street
oh yeah

feelin' ok, he's feelin' ok until 3last call
at a dive bar, a dive bar off main street


bear witness to the fall
of a man who lost it all
and it started on a friday

trying to fill the void
that left him unemployed
that's when he started..

drinkin' away, he's drinkin' away all his problems
at a dive bar, a dive bar off main street
oh yeah

feelin' ok, he's feelin' ok until the last call
at a dive bar, a dive bar off main street

Wastin' away,he's wastin' away but lord what else can he do?
he's on his own - and he can't break through

But there is a place, a place that he can go where everyone knows his name
it's a little dive bar, a dive bar off main
