A pub is sometimes called a bar

a bar to heaven a door to hell

whoever named it, named it well

a bar to manliness and wealth

a door to want and broken health

a bar to honor, pride and fame

a door to grief and sin and shame

a bar to hope a bar to prayer

a door to darkness and despair

a bar to honoured useful life

a door to brawling senseless strife

a bar to all thats true and brave

a door to every drunkards grave

a bar to joys that home imparts

a door to tears and aching hearts

a bar to heaven a door to hell

whoever named it, named it well
