TEARDROPS ON TAP words & music by Thom Parrott Copyright 1978, 2003 by Thom Parrott One draft, bartender, for the day that we met. The look in her eyes, I will never forget. Turn the jukebox up loud. Play Jones and Wynette, Cause new broken hearts get the same old regrets. I thought when we married, we'd never part. Now I'm alone with a new broken heart. Pull back on the handle. Fill up my glass. I'll drink to my memories with these TEARDROPS ON TAP. Draw another, bartender. Here's to dangerous games... That both of us played, so we both share the blame. I know that she's drinking, tho she's not drinking here, But wherever she is, she's got a glass full of tears. TEARDROPS ON TAP don't help me forget, But it hasn't been so long that I want to, just yet. Pull back on the handle. Fill up my glass. I'll drink to my memories with these TEARDROPS ON TAP. I'll drink to my memories with these TEARDROPS ON TAP.


These lyrics are the second version. When I took Teardrops On Tap, version one to Andy Anderson at Blue Ridge Records, he liked it generally but thought it needed more of a story. I reworked the lyrics and he produced the recording by Montana rodeo cowboy Randy Rhodes (not the deceased Ozzy guitar player). Randy's version made it to 81 in its third week on Cashbox Magazine's Country chart, after two weeks with a bullet. The suit with the money got distracted so we only ever had a thousand copy test pressing and no promotion.
