Song Lyric Sunday – Tequila Sunrise – The Eagles

I was happy to learn that this week’s prompt was DRINK!

The first thing I thought of was Tequila Sunrise by one of my favorite bands, The Eagles.

In response to Helen Vahdati’s Song Lyric Sunday – Drink

Tequila Sunrise

It’s another tequila sunrise
Starin’ slowly ‘cross the sky said goodbye
He was just a hired hand
Workin’ on the dreams he planned to try
The days go by

Ev’ry night when the sun goes down
Just another lonely boy in town
And she’s out runnin’ ’round

She wasn’t just another woman
And I couldn’t keep from comin’ on
It’s been so long
Oh and it’s a hollow feelin’ when
It comes down to dealin’ friends
It never ends

Take another shot of courage
Wonder why the right words never come
You just get numb
It’s another tequila sunrise

This old world
Still looks the same,
Another frame, mmm

    Wow! I have just been transported back in time. The Eagles were such a part of my earlier single life! Car doors open on a hot, summer’s night by the local lake blasting out the Eagles’ hits!

    Ah, the Eagles. You can’t go wrong by choosing an Eagles song. I miss Glenn Frey.
