An Empty Glass (That's the Way the Day Ends)

by Gary Stewart

Gary Stewart (May 28, 1944 – December 16, 2003) was a country musician and songwriter known for his distinctive vibrato voice and his southern rock influenced, outlaw country sound. During the peak of his popularity in the mid-1970s Time magazine described him as the "king of honkytonk." He is remembered for a series of country chart hits from the mid- to late- 1970s, his biggest hit being "She's Actin' Single (I'm Drinkin' Doubles)," which topped the U.S. country singles charts in 1975.




An empty glass
That last cigarette
It's closing time
And I'm drunk again

But somehow I'll make it home
And cry myself to sleep
That's how my day ends
Every night for me

Every night I'm in some bar
Pouring whiskey on a heart that's on fire
Forgetting you is no easy thing
Each night for me always ends the same

With an empty glass
That last cigarette
It's closing time
And I'm drunk again

But somehow I'll make it home
And cry myself to sleep
That's how my day ends
Every night for me

Every night I'm in some bar
Pouring whiskey on a heart that's on fire
Forgetting you is no easy thing
Each night for me always ends the same

With an empty glass
That last cigarette
It's closing time
And I'm drunk again

But somehow I'll make it home
And cry myself to sleep
That's how my day ends
Every night for me.
Yeah, that's how my day ends
Every night for me
