Bubbles In My Beer
by Tommy Duncan, Cindy Walker and Bob Wills

"The great Tommy Duncan called me one day and said, 'Cindy, I've got a great song title for you.' I hadn't written a square song all day and was hungry for a good title. Tommy took a deep breath and said, 'Watching The Bubbles In My Beer.' I couldn't have been more surprised if he had hit me in the face with a wet squirrel. I said, 'You're kidding,' but I could tell by the silence on the other end of the line that he wasn't kidding. So I said, 'Tell me what you had in mind.' He said, 'Well, you see a lonely man sitting in a barroom not talking to anyone, just thinking of someone or something that happened in the pastójust remembering and watching the bubbles in his beer.' You can bet I didn't wait for the water to get hot before I started to put that one on paper."
óCindy Walker

Bubbles In My Beer

Tonight in a bar alone I'm sitting
Apart from the laughter and the cheer
While scenes from the past rise before me
Just watching the bubbles in my beer.

I'm seeing the road that I've travelled
A road paved with heartaches and tears
And I'm seeing the past that I've wasted
While watching the bubbles in my beer.

A vision of someone who loved me
Brings a lone silent tear to me eye
As I think of the heart that I've broken
And of the golden chances that have passed me by.

Oh, I know that my life's been a failure
I've lost everything that made life dear
And the dreams I once made now are empty
As empty as the bubbles in my beer.
