Old City Bar
A Christmas song...
About this creation

In an old city bar
That's never too far
From the places that gather
The dreams that have been
In the safety of night
With it's old neon light
It beckons to strangers
They always come in

And the snow it was falling
The neon was calling
The music was low
And the night, Christmas Eve
And here was the danger
Even with strangers
Inside of this night
It's easier to believe

Then the door opened wide
And a child came inside
That no one in the bar
Had seen there before
And he asked did we know
That outside in the snow
That someone was lost
Standing outside our door

Then the bartender gazed
Through the smoke and the haze
Through the window and ice
To the corner street light

Where standing alone
By a broken pay phone
Was a girl, the child said
Could no longer get home

And the snow it was falling
The neon was calling

The bartender turned
and said, "Not that I care
But how would you know this?"

The child said, "I noticed
If one could be home,
They'd be already there."

Then the bartender came out
From behind the bar
And in all of his life
He was never that far


And he did something else
That he thought no one saw
When he took all the cash
From the register drawer

Then he followed the child
To the girl cross the street

And we watched from the bar
As they started to speak

Then he called for a cab
And he said, "JFK"

Put the girl in the cab
And the cab drove away
Then we saw in his hand
That the cash was all gone
From the light that she had wished upon


If you want to arrange it
This world we can change it
If we could somehow
Make this Christmas Day last
By helping a neighbor
Even a stranger
To know who needs help
You need only just ask

Then he looked for the child
But the child wasn't there
Just the wind and the snow
Waltzing dreams through the air

So he walked back inside
Some how different, I think
For the rest of that night
No one paid for a drink

All the cynics will say
That some neighborhood kid
Wandered in on some bums
In the world where they hid
But they weren't there
So they couldn't see
By an old neon star
On the night Christmas Eve

When the snow it was falling
The neon was calling
In case you should wonder
In case you should care
Why we on our own
Never went home
On that night of all nights
We were already there
