Blake: Dive Bar


Blake’s duet with Garth Brooks, Dive Bar, was released to radio today. It comes from Garth’s upcoming album Fun and will be on Amazon next month, at which point they’ll also release a music video.

The lyrics belong are a first draft transcription and will be amended when I have the correct ones at hand.


We'll turn that bottle up and drank it
Crank that jukebox up and Hank it
Bartender, pour another round
Here's to our best bad decisions
Situation, no conditions, oh
And memories we all need to drown

So fill your cup, raise it up
Jump in and join the club
And float this whiskey river reservoir
We're going to spend the weekend
In the deep end
Of a dive bar

Cause I’ve been hearin’ 
‘Bout the only lovin’ left her lost and lonely
Anyone who’s ever swam against the tide
Think of this as your oasis
It’s the safest of the places
That a broken heart can find to hide

So here’s a toast coast to coast
With a big ole adios
To wishes wasted on the fallen stars
We're going to spend the weekend
In the deep end
Of a dive bar

Yes, it’s chapter after chapter
Of happy never after
But that’s just the way the story goes
For some barstool believers,
Wear our heart out on our sleeve-rs
Just goin’ where the neon glows

Yes, it’s chapter after chapter
Of happy never after
But that’s just the way the story goes
Yeah, we’re just never quite belong-ers,
Hanger on-ers, way too longers
Just buzzin’ where the neon glows

Problems, we all got ‘em
Let them sink down to the bottom
Doesn't matter who or where you are
Gonna spend the weekend
In the deep end

The water's fine y’all
So just come on in
To the deep end
Of a dive bar
Of this dive bar
Talkin’ about a dive bar
