Barflies (fuck it - yolo)

lyrics

VERSE: A Bm E A x 2
CHORUS: E7 A x 2 F#m E D A
The barflies are at the coffee shop
they’ve been grouches all morning
emptying coffee pots
filling up ashtrays
taking years off their lives
they don’t show signs of stopping
to go home and see their wives

and I, I don’t blame ya
no I, I don’t blame ya
for saying fuck it
you only live once

the bar stools are empty
just down the street
and everyone there knows your name
so theres no one left to please
as long as you settle up
at the end of the night
you won’t have to drink alone
for the rest of your life

and I, I don’t blame ya
no I, I don’t blame ya
for saying fuck it
you only live once

the factory sits empty
where some people used to work
they say entertainments the new industry
hope your skills will transfer
but its hard to keep amused
when your pockets start to hurt
but a good case of cheap beer
will never lose its worth

and I, I don’t blame ya
no I, I don’t blame ya
for saying fuck it
you only live once

between the cheers and pints
and empty jugs and jars
i hear people talking
in all the local bars.
they say the revolutions coming
i can feel it in my bones
but its so hard to smash the state
while i’m paying off my loans

and I, I don’t blame ya
no I, I don’t blame ya
for saying fuck it
you only live once
