=============================================


        It's quarter to three, no one in the place
        except you and me
        So set 'em up bro, I've got a little story
        in my one know

        We're drinking my friend, to the end
        of a brief episode
        Make it one for my baby
        one more for the road

        I got this routine, put another quarter
        in the machine
        I'm feeling so bad, wish you make the music
        dreamin' and sad

        I tell you a lot, but you've got to be
        true do your code
        Make it one for my baby and -
        one more for the road

        I know you'd never know it, but men I'm a kind of poet
        and I've got a lot of things to you say
        But when I'm gloomy, it's best to listen to me
        until it's talked away

        That's how it goes, hey Joe, I know your gettin'
        ready to close
        Hey baby, thanks for the cheer, I hope you didn't mind me
        bending your ear

        This torch that I found, must be drowned
        or soon .......
        Make it one for my baby
        one more for the road
        One more for my baby
        one more for the road

        For the long (long-long, lonesome road)
        long-long road (long-long, lonesome road)
        For the long (long-long, lonesome road)
        long, lonesome road (long-long, lonesome road)
        set 'em up bro

        (Long-long, lonesome road)
        (long-long, lonesome road)
        (Long-long, lonesome road)
        (long-long, lonesome road)

i saw the lyrics and then i listened to the song
and they're not the same so, i changed some of the wrong words.
things like " quarter" instead of "nickel".
well, it's not important, just a few little things.



(previous): So set 'em up Bro. I got a story
(update)  : So set 'em up Bro. I got a little story

(previous): I got the routine, put another nickel
(update)  :  I got the routine, put another quarter
