Lyrics IN THE CORNER OF THE BAR
THERE STANDS A JUKEBOX,
WITH THE BEST OF COUNTRY MUSIC,
OLD AND NEW.
YOU CAN HEAR
YOUR FIVE SELECTIONS
FOR A QUARTER,
AND SOMEBODY ELSE'S SONGS
WHEN YOURS ARE THROUGH.
I GOT GOOD KENTUCKY WHISKEY
ON THE COUNTER,
AND MY FRIENDS AROUND
TO HELP ME EASE THE PAIN.
TILL SOME BUTTON-PUSHING COWBOY
PLAYS THAT LOVE SONG,
AND HERE I AM
JUST MISSING YOU AGAIN.

PLEASE MISTER, PLEASE,
DON'T PLAY B SEVENTEEN,
IT WAS OUR SONG,
IT WAS HIS SONG,
BUT IT'S OVER.
PLEASE MISTER, PLEASE,
IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN,
I DON'T EVER WANNA HEAR
THAT SONG AGAIN.

IF I HAD A DIME
FOR EVERY TIME I HELD YOU
THOUGH YOU'RE FAR AWAY,
YOU'VE BEEN SO CLOSE TO ME.
I COULD SWEAR
I'D BE THE RICHEST GIRL
IN NASHVILLE
MAYBE IN THE STATE
OF TENNESSEE.
BUT, I GUESS
I'D BETTER GET MYSELF
TOGETHER,
BECAUSE WHEN YOU LEFT
YOU DIDN'T LEAVE
TOO MUCH BEHIND
JUST A NOTE THAT SAID,
I'M SORRY,
BY YOUR PICTURE
AND A SONG THAT'S WEIGHING
HEAVY ON MY MIND.

PLEASE MISTER, PLEASE,
DON'T PLAY B SEVENTEEN,
IT WAS OUR SONG,
IT WAS HIS SONG,
BUT IT'S OVER.
PLEASE MISTER, PLEASE,
IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN,
I DON'T EVER WANNA
HEAR THAT SONG AGAIN.

Lyrics [verse 1]:
I HEARD
THAT YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN
NOW,
SO AM I,
I'M LIVING ALONE
NOW.
I WAS WRONG,
SO WERE YOU.
WHAT WILL YOU DO?
ARE YOU GLAD
TO BE FREE?
ARE YOU FEELING LOST
JUST LIKE ME?
LONGING FOR COMPANY?
OH,

[Chorus]:
SAM,
SAM YOU KNOW
I AM;
COME AROUND
AND TALK AWHILE.
I NEED YOUR SMILE;
YOU NEED A SHOULDER.
OH,
SAM,
SAM YOU KNOW WHERE
I AM;
AND THE DOOR
IS OPEN WIDE.
COME ON INSIDE.
LONGING TO SEE YOU.
OH,
SAM,
SAM YOU KNOW WHERE
I AM.

[verse 2]:
I FIND THE DAYS
HARD TO FACE NOW,
EMPTY ROOMS,
THERE'S MUCH TOO MUCH
SPACE NOW.
AND THE NIGHTS
GO SO SLOW.
I'M SURE YOU KNOW.
WISH I KNEW
WHAT TO DO.
IT WOULD BE SO NICE
SEEING YOU;
AND IT MIGHT
HELP YOU TOO.
OH,

[Chorus]:
SAM,
SAM YOU KNOW WHERE
I AM;
COME AROUND
AND TALK AWHILE.
I NEED YOUR SMILE;
YOU NEED A SHOULDER.
OH,
SAM,
SAM YOU KNOW WHERE
I AM;
AND THE DOOR
IS OPEN WIDE.
COME ON INSIDE.
LONGING TO SEE YOU.
OH,
SAM,
SAM YOU KNOW WHERE
I AM.
