I Love This Bar - Song Lyrics

  • Written by Toby Keith (born Toby Keith Covel in Clinton, OK) & Scotty Emerick
  • "I was sitting on the bus with Scott one night after a show, and we had a little groove going. We were talking about all the characters you see in a bar and just started writing it. It didn�t take very long. It just felt like a real good redneck sing-along song."
  • The song was included on the album "Shock & Y'all" which debuted at #1 on the Billboard album chart in 2003. It was recorded at Jimmy Buffett's "Shrimp Boat Studio" in Key West Florida
  • The song itself spent 5 weeks at #1 on the country charts at the end of 2003

Other songs by Toby Keith performed by Oracle

We got winners; we got losers
Chain smokers and boozers
An' we got yuppies; we got bikers
An' we got, thirsty hitchhikers
And the girls next door dress up like movie stars
Mm, mm, mmm, mmm, mmm, I love this bar

We got cowboys; we got truckers
Broken hearted fools and suckers
An' we got hustlers; we got fighters
Early birds and all niters
And the veterans talk about their battle scars
Mm, mm, mmm, mmm, mmm, I love this bar

I love this bar
It's my kind place
Just walk in through the front door
Puts a big smile on my face
It ain't too far; come as you are
Mm, mm, mmm, mmm, mmm, I love this bar

I've seen short skirts; we've got high-techs
Blue-collar boys and rednecks
An' we got lovers; lots of lookers
I've even seen dancin' girls and hookers
And we like to drink our beer from a mason jar
Mm, mm, mmm, mmm, mmm, I love this bar, yes I do!

I like my truck, (I like my truck)
An' I like my girlfriend, (I like my girlfriend)
I like to take her out to dinner
I like a movie now and then:

But I love this bar
It's my kind place
Just toeing around the dance floor
Puts a big smile on my face
No cover charge; come as you are
Mm, mm, mmm, mmm, mmm, I just love this ol' bar
