Beer Never Broke My Heart Lyrics Meaning
Let’s dissect the meaning behind the lyrics of “Beer Never Broke My Heart” by Luke Combs section-wise.
Combs has a love for fishing and we can tell that by how remorseful he is of that one time when a game fish, a largemouth bass damaged his fishing line beyond repair! And not just his weekend getaways, even his long-term relationships have let him down. He has had romantic involvements more than once and his heart has been broken every single time. His favorite trucks and rides have broken down and have left him stranded in the middle of nowhere.
Even his most trusted pets, even his dogs have left him all by himself. When all in his inner circle have been so cruel and dispassionate, what would one expect from politicians, that are scoundrels anyway? So Combs has been dumped, been left alone, been fired by his boss, no regard being given to his misery whatsoever!
Most, unfortunately, there is only a handful of things that he can count on. And there are very scarce of those things that have not been a cause of disappointment for him. He has not really been able to fall back on anyone or anything and has had no shoulder to lean on.
And yet, that inviting and a soothing mug of ice-cold beer has been there to his rescue without fail, every single time. He hasn’t had much luck even on the front of marriage and his engagement seems to have been called off if one were to go by the ‘diamond ring’ reference. Even the football teams that he has rooted for through and through, have let him down with their game. But the ice-cold beer, the bar, and the guitar have always rendered him solace.
He misses the love of his life. The beautiful girl from Carolina whose eyes were home to the most intense fires of passion. And guess what, he was wronged by this Carolina lass as well!
Combs reiterates that he was wronged by girls and football teams and what not and yet his cold beer never failed him. The song might appear to be the soliloquy of a loser. But given a closer look, and a keener ear one gathers that come what may life goes on! Having confronted several setbacks, Combs still sings with his guitar in tow and with his cold beer to keep him company.
