Longest Beer of the Night
by C. Carson Parks
This is the longest beer of the night
But in the east I think I see some light
And pretty soon I know the sun will shine
And I know a bar that opens promptly at nine, at nine

I guess two six packs wasn't enough
Cause right about now the going really gets rough, oh yea
And some early bird is happy calling it's mate
And I wish I knew a bar that opened oh so promptly at eight

Maybe I was just a fool thinking I could drown you out of my mind
But the longest part of the day is just before nine, before nine

I can see the dew settling on the ground
And if I'm not careful your memory's gonna come around, yeah
That's the reason I just got to stay tight
So I'm just nursing the longest beer of the night
I'm just nursing the longest beer of the night
