Pour Me Some Scotch

Pour me some scotch, I’ll tell you a story
This one full of thriving drunken louts
Seafaring strangers searching for loose women
Under these conditions, love is often on the outs
Ladies and gentlemen, please let me continue
Twas not I, for the saloon singer’s song
Melted her heart & it not my fault
You cannot blame me for his doing wrong
I too was blinded by the sparkle of the ring
I too was victim when that ship went down
Tilt your eyes back to who you know it is
In the dark corner of midnight rests the sad clown

  1. Hmmm, I know a guy who had something similar to this happen to him…..the story dear to my heart…she was broken hearted from a horrible betrayal….he offered a listening ear and comfort….guards were let down bc it would go nowhere, as she was married, after all, and he was a generation older…both victims of love’s sting..
