Been in here too many times

Raw wood floors
Planks stained with beer and whiskey
Particle board shows through the walls
Can is on the fritz
Waitress is older than Saul
Still proud of her sagging tits
Waits on the juke
Stale beer in the air
Drink from the bottle
Why should I care
The bar is mahogany
The stools rock and creak
Pitcher is only two bucks
That’s pretty hard to beat
No ladies in this bar
Just hard drinkin’ men
Most wanted with jailhouse tattoos
Have another shot
Nothing left to lose
Barkeep wipes the counter with her filthy rag
Light behind the bar flickers as it starts to fade
Dude on the end still wearing’ his shades
Dance floor’s chipped and worn
No one dances there anymore
This place isn’t about beginnings
Just middles and ends

Becky: As Tom Wait's said, "no one brings anything small into the place."

Keshi: I like the older bars too, it is quiet, no TVs blaring and you can actually talk to people.

Check out a DVD entitled "Cigarettes and Coffee". The segment with Tom Waits and Iggy Pop says it all.

I like the detailed imagery. Especially:
