lyrics

We pulled into the back of the bar
Barely a place to park your car
Into the night you slipped away
I stared at the back door wrought with decay

Heard trunk open, that was my cue
Get out of the car, there was much to do
Unloading a keyboard, stand and chair
Equipment for sound was stashed in there

What hit me first when I stepped through the door
The stench of stale beer, urine, and more
Happy to see you, they all shake your hand
A keyboard player really adds to the band

(Chorus)
It's a hole in the wall, as we well know
Musicians are jammin, most anything goes
Coming from day jobs, they all arrive
Night time and music, they come alive

Once inside I search for a table
Knowing you'd join me when you were able
Our waitress comes with drinks in hand
You're a regular here with this house band

The boys are playing songs to warm up
While near the stage each jammer signs up
Catching up on news of who's playing where
Old friends and new friends converge in there

Heat is created when couples dance close
Jammers respond by giving their most
Guitar in hand, Billy turns to you
His solo demands a response from you

Heat is created when couples dance close
Jammers respond by giving their most
Piano solo done, Johnny turns to you
His solo demands a response from you

Night time and music dances by
Some jammers had to say goodbye
Don't forget 'bout our next gig
New tunes to play, new songs to dig
