Gord Bamford The Watering Hole Lyrics

There ain’t a whole lot of places

For people round here to go

But when the work week’s done

We’re bound to have some fun

Down at the watering hole

Population seven hundred

Is all this little town can hold

But Friday night I swear

They’re all right here

Hanging at the watering hole


It ain’t a watering hole for horses

Or a place where people go to swim

Though there’s a sign that says no fishin’

No telling what you might reel in

Yea a jukebox and a dance floor

The wings are hot and the beer is cold

The night is always young when you’re having fun

Down at the watering hole

Hey that old bartender I bet he’s seen it all

He’s seen grown men cry

And girls gone wild

And a few good bar room brawls

Saturday morning at the diner

There’ll be a few good stories told

Like who’s the fool

Who fell off his stool

Down at the watering hole

[Repeat Chorus]
