Lyrics
There's candles at each table
Smoke fills the cracks
Honey, I stopped in to drink
Tomorrow I'll be back
I'll bet she thinks the world of me
She's walking out the door
Misery tavern, it's the only place I know

I tried to get along somehow
Start loving someone new
Each time I make a start
I'm right back in that room
I'll sober up long enough to find my way back in
Misery tavern, it's the only place I know
Misery tavern, tonight I'll go down slow
Misery tavern, it's the only place I know

There's candles at each table
Smoke fills the cracks
Honey, I stopped in to drink
Tomorrow I'll be back
I'll bet she thinks the world of me
She's walking out the door
Misery tavern, it's the only place I know

Misery tavern, tonight I'll go down slow
Misery tavern, it's the only place I know
