When I See This Bar
by Kenny Chesney



Well I see the souls of so many friends
And I see us all back here again
With sandy floors and ceiling fans
A Rastafarian one-man band with songs
That fill my memories like a tip jar
Yeah, that's what I see
When I see this bar

I see tourists at Christmas time
And I taste beers with a hint of lime
I feel lonely 'cause it's not the same
Different faces and different names
Living like pirates out among the stars
Yeah, that's what I see
When I see this bar

Pieces of our past slowly slip away
But time just stands still when I walk in this place

And I see a kid coming into his own
And a man learning to move on
Somehow trying to find his way
A dreamer betting on blind faith
Chasing that sun and following his heart
Yeah, that's what I see
When I see this bar

Pieces of our past slowly slip away
But time just stands still when I walk in this place

A few have moved on back to Maine
Jacksonville and Key Biscayne
Some are still living the dream
Stuck in still life it seems
No matter where they've been
Or where they are
Yeah, I see 'em here
When I see this bar
When I see this bar

I wonder where we go from here
(That's what I see when I see this bar)
Life ain't over but it's always near
(That's what I see when I see this bar)
I think about all the good times that we had
(That's what I see when I see this bar)
Makes me happy and it makes me sad
(That's what I see when I see this bar)
How could we be so close, now so far apart
(That's what I see when I see this bar)
That's what I feel, that's what I see
Yeah we were living like pirates and wannabe stars
That's what I see when I see this bar

That's what I see when I see this bar
