Every afternoon at five o'clock
I forget all about you
There ain't nothin' 'bout this honky-tonk
To remind me we're through
And I can put off going back
To that ol' empty house you swore you'd never leave
From the loneliness you handed me
I can get a brief reprieve
From here until closing time
It won't matter you're gone
I can fill up my emptiness
Maybe make it on my own
From now til they lock the doors
Put the chairs up and sweep the floors
You won't even cross my mind
