​Honky Tonk Gal

This song is by Carl Perkins.

They took a light from a honky tonk
Put the gleam in your eye
They took a record from the jukebox
And they bid my gal goodbye
And now she's gone, honky tonk gal

Oh, she said she didn't love me
She didn't care no more
She'd rather spend her life
On a honky tonk hardwood floor
But I'll be gone, honky tonk gal

Someday you'll come back crying
Someday you will be blue
And that mean old honky tonkin'
Life'll get the beat of you
But I'll be gone, honky tonk gal

Lord, I'll stand right up and tell you
I'll sit right down and cry
Sweetheart, if you should leave me now
I'll know I'd lay and die
But now she's gone, honky tonk gal

They took a light from a honky tonk
Put the gleam in your eye
They took a record from the jukebox
And they bid my gal goodbye
And now she's gone, honky tonk gal

You'd rather spend your life
On a honky tonk hardwood floor
But I'll be gone, honky tonk gal
