Hard day at work, ready for some fun
Headin' for a place where I like everyone
But once at the front door, I felt impending doom
'Cause right there in the corner, it just had to be her broom ---- stick

I know I've made lots of mistakes; I guess everyone's the same
But the one who rides the broomstick; oh, that was a crying shame

Now I want to go inside real bad
I'm as thirsty as I've ever been
But I haven't gone totally mad
There's no way I could blend in
And I know I ain't goin' in no place got her broomstick parked by the front door

I tried peepin' in a window, but there wasn't none
Cowards die a lot, a brave man just once
Stuck my head in the door; it's so very dark in there
I just could not move; she was my worst nightmare


I gathered all my courage, just about to head on in
When struttin' out the door was my gorgeous new best friend
She took hold of that broom, swept some dust off the mat
Then she smiled at me, went back in, just as simple as that



Guess I'll go on in
Sure hope my new best friend
Hid that broomstick behind the bar

Story Behind the Song:
Was getting my car fixed at a mechanic's shop. He had seen me perform and knew I was a songwriter from hearing some of my originals. Told me he had a hook for me. Said he was recently divorced. Said he had a dream that he worked really hard one day and wanted to go to his favorite watering hole after work. He did, but he could not go in because he saw his ex-wife's broomstick parked by the front door. "Nuff said. A country song awaits.
