lyrics

It's been the same thing each Tuesday for 30 years
The 'ol boys jam on the blues, Jeanette serves 'em beer
They all had big plans once, now their long gone, disappeared
Started off with a day-job that ended up their careers
Now they continue to play because it passes the time away

Their eyes once flashed gold now its a sad sapphire
No dream come true 'cause now their retired
Lou likes to talk about the big gig he almost acquired
And their just singin' away the blues at Le Pub Limoilou

She blew in like a blizzard on the Carnival winds
Shakin' up the place with an unusual rhythm
And her voice, could-a summoned lost souls
And her guitar playin' was out of control
So all those 'ol boys thought, "She could make me a lot of money"

And their eyes flashed gold but her's flash fire
She's a dream-come-true just when they thought they'd retired
Bernard from Ramouski says he'll make her a star
But she wont forever sing the blues at Le Pub Limoi...

And time's a devil taunting you with moments that don't last
You pass the torch but it's haunting you with flickers of the past
Oh, to live that dream again
Oh to live that dream again
Oh she just had to walk in

Jeanette noticed a problem around 3 'o clock
All the players kept playin' and couldn't seem to stop
All these friends fightin' friends, back-deals, and bloody strings
She thought to herself, "I should probably do something"
So that rabble-rousing lady, out the door she did escort

And their eyes flashed gold but her's flash fire
She's a dream-come-true just when they thought they'd retired
Bernard from Ramouski says he'll make her a star
But she wont forever sing the blues at Le Pub Limoilou
