Lyrics
BAR OF LOST SOULS
(STEVE DAFOE) 2008

CHORUS:

G G (High E twang) Fmaj7
AND COME ON IN TO THE HOME OF LONELY SOULS
FIND A DARK CORNER....SO NO ONE WILL SEE YOUR EYES
NO JUDGEMENT HERE FROM LIVES THAT HAVE BEEN STOLE
JUST CHECK YOUR THORNY CROWN ON THE OLD COATSTAND
YOU'RE ALWAYS WELCOME AT THIS BAR FOR LOST SOULS
G Fmaj7
OUR HOME TO ALL LOST SOULS


VERSE 1:

YOU'LL SEE JOHN ALWAYS AT THE BAR
HIS DRINK OF CHOICE IS TONIC AND GIN
I GUESS HE SURVIVED A BATTERED CHILDHOOD
THINKS IT IS ALL HIS FAULT, IT'S HIS MORTAL SIN
HERE HE'S AT HOME....HELPS SOOTHES THE SCAR


VERSE 2:

AND WATCH THE GIRL BY THE BACK DOOR....
LOOKING NERVOUSLY OVER HER SHOULDER
HER EYES WILL NEVER MEET ANOTHER'S
HER DADDY DID THINGS HE SHOULDN'T HAVE TO HER
SHE'S HOME HERE, DON' FEEL LIKE A WHORE...

VERSE 3:

AS FOR ME.....I DID A COUPLE TOURS OF DUTY
THESE PEOPLE AND MY DRINK HAVE BECOME MY CRUTCH
I DON'T SLEEP WELL....THE FLASHBACKS TOO GREAT
SEEN THINGS THAT NO EYES SHOULD HAVE TO TOUCH
SO IT'S ALL THESE LOST AND LONELY SOULS AND ME
