Swinging Doors

Lyrics: Merle Haggard
Music: Merle Haggard

Played by Bob Weir with Kingfish in the 1970s, and by the New Riders of the Purple Sage.

This old smoke-filled bar is something I'm not used to
But I gave up my home to see you satisfied
And I just called to let you know where I'll be living
It's not much but I feel welcome here inside

Chorus
And I've got swinging doors, a jukebox and a barstool
And my new home has a flashing neon sign
Drop by and see me anytime you want to
'Cause I'm always here at home till closing time

I've got everything I need to drive me crazy
And I've got everything I need to lose my mind
And in here the atmosphere's just right for heartaches
And thanks to you I'm always here till closing time

[chorus]

[chorus]
Oh yes, I'm always here at home till closing time
