lyrics

The man at the bar is a friend of his
But he don’t even know his name
He calls him out by the drink of his choice
This is the local price of fame
He never wanted to be here
He never thought that it would last this long
Never thought he’d be pouring drinks
With a college degree and head full of dreams

The girl at the end of the bar has declined the drink that you bought for her
Says she’s sorry, but she’s had too much
She wouldn’t mind one of your cigarettes
She don’t smoke, but only when she’s drinking
Isn’t that what everyone says?

Same time, same place, the same damn show
He’s your local celebrity

Dim lights and the neon signs
Beckoning to the passerby
Come on in, and sit on down
Make your friends by buying a round
How are you doing, and what can I get you?
His one-liner, his catch-phrase

Same time, same place, the same damn show
He’s your local celebrity

The matchmaker
The cab caller
The moral authority
With wet shoes
A stained shirt
The uniform of the hometown hero

Same time, same place, the same damn show
He’s your hometown hero
Same time, same place, the same damn show
He’s your local celebrity
Same time, same place, pouring his way into the local hall-of-fame
