Toby Keith: "I Love This Bar"

When Texas Truth was young, dumb, and full of testosterone ..I used to frequent places like this. Once I met and married "My Lovely Bride," I stopped going so much, but we have been known to go back once or twice a year, for some "fun."

I know Toby Keith supported Barack HUSSEIN Obama, but I still like his songs.

After all, earlier this month, he declared the democratic party had left him and he was changing his political affiliation to "Independent." Chick here to read the story.

The only thing is I don't like to drink my beer from a mason jar. I like drinking it from ice cold long neck bottles or a frosty mug.

We got winners, we got losers
Chain smokers and boozers
And we got yuppies, we got bikers
We got thirsty hitchhikers
And the girls next door dress up like movie stars

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar

We got cowboys, we got truckers
Broken-hearted fools and suckers
And we got hustlers, we got fighters
Early birds and all-nighters
And the veterans talk about their battle scars

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar

I love this bar
It's my kind of place
Just walkin' through the front door
Puts a big smile on my face
It ain't too far, come as you are
Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar

I've seen short skirts, we got high-techs
Blue-collar boys and rednecks
And we got lovers, lots of lookers
And I've even seen dancing girls and hookers
And we like to drink our beer from a mason jar

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar
Yes I do

I like my truck (I like my truck)
I like my girlfriend (I like my girlfriend)
I like to take her out to dinner
I like a movie now and then

But I love this bar
It's my kind of place
Just trollin' around the dance floor
Puts a big smile on my face
No cover charge, come as you are
Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar
Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this bar

TT,
I too, like Toby even though his politics are messed up. I saw him in concert with my wife, daughter and some friends. Great show, good times.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your bride.

I had a pub like that in Chico when I was much younger. I knew the staff by name in short order and learned the difference between real beer and the crap they served at keggers...

lol

I didn't graduate from CSU Chico for some reason!

The Vegas Art Guy: I had a place such as you described when I went to college in a very liberal Texas town. It was the best place to get away from it all. I guess it was MY "Cheers.". Sadly, they tore it down to build condos.
