ON THE BACK ROW (Jerry Chesnut / Norro Wilson) Jerry Lee Lewis - 1968 Del Reeves - 1969 George Jones - 1972 Here I sit on the back row in a church down the street Not too far from the place that we used to meet But it's finally getting through to me, you found someone you love But I'll go back to the place I keep thinking of It's not a fancy place, just a tavern in the lonely part of town Where lonely people meet, oh, and try to find someone and settle down But fate dealt me the blow that I can't understand Here I sit on the back row while you wed another man (Instrumental Break) You'd never dream, but after many years I may still be sitting there With just a bottle and two glasses, right next to your favorite chair For who knows you might have left him, he might even do you wrong And there I'll sit in a tavern waiting for you all alone It's not a fancy place, just a tavern in the lonely part of town Where lonely people find someone and a hope to settle down But fate dealt me the blow that I can't understand Here I sit in the back row while you wed another man (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - July 2012)
