The Singer in Louisville     -Dave Coleman

The singer is back in Louisville
He's always been here somewhere on a bill 
And good you know, In fact a favorite
Lord his guitar and the way he plays it

Aw there giving him hell
And he's not taking it to well
The Singer in Louisville

The singer is drinking my whiskey
He's slowing down and looking tipsy
I know he's hurting in fact in pain
Now that they're asking for "Fire and Rain"

The old singer he's yelling at these kids
Don't like them either with there fifty cent tips
He throws a pouch in fact a statement
Then he's beatin into the pavement

The singer when he was young
He had the power he was the sun
But tonight he'll drive back home
Back into the arms of his wife and his son

My bar is closing in fact for good
It's hard to tell just when it is that you should
Aw the singer he could hang it up too
But he's got his next show in just a week or two
