Neal McCoy - Every Man For Himself Lyrics




Jerry, he's a workaholic
Never made time for the family
He's dedicated to his gin and tonics
But they don't give him what he needs

And Joey, he pays alimony
To two wives in different towns
And tries to act like he ain't lonely
But the single life will wears you down

And as for me
I'm no different from the rest
And I've been coming here
Ever since that woman left

And now it's every man for himself tonight
Yeah, we're looking out for number one
And trying to get on with our lives

And it's heartbreaking and it's soul aching
When you've got nobody else
So friends, it's good to have you here tonight
But it's everyman for himself

In walks that long haired beauty
We're all prayin' she's unattached
I felt a chill go straight through me
I've never seen a smile like that

And I ain't worried about Bill or Darryl
They're both wearing their wedding bands
The rest of us are fish in a barrel
She could have her pick but understand

And she can't save us all
From the lonely lives we lead
So bartender, would you send her a drink
And tell her it's from me

'Cause it's every man for himself tonight
Yeah, we're looking out for number one
And trying to get on with our lives

And it's heartbreaking and it's soul aching
When you've got nobody else
So friends, it's good to have you here tonight
But it's everyman for himself

And I'll be your shoulder, friends
When you feel like giving up
But if it ever comes down to finding love

Well, then it's every man for himself tonight
Yeah, we're looking out for number one
And trying to get on with our lives

And it's heartbreaking and it's soul aching
When you've got nobody else
So friends, it's good to have you here tonight
But it's everyman for him self
