Bonnie was a waitress at the corner cafe
She's waiting for a man who swore
He was coming back some day
Twenty years have come and gone
But not for Bonnie Jean
It's a long, long time but in her mind
She's still seventeen

And she tunes into the six o'clock news
Till American Idol comes on
Then she'll dance around in her second hand gown
And softly sing along
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah......

John's lookin' for a liquor store
He needs something to drink
He's just tryin' to find some peace of mind
So he don't have to think
Of a little girl who was his world
Standing at her momma's side
If he looks into her eyes of blue
He'll begin to cry

So he tunes into the six o'clock news
Till American Idol comes on
And he'll sit down with his bottle of crown
And softly sing along
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.....
Chorus:
We're all dealin' with our demons boys
And God knows we all got em'
We can't hold em' down
No matter how we try
We can't drown em' all with alcohol
Cause the bottle has no bottom
So we sit alone at home and softly cry

So let's all tune into the six o'clock news
Till American Idol comes on
And we'll all lay down our thorny crowns
And softly sing along
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah,........

The End Blessings, Donny
