Honky Tonk Downstairs

This song is by Dan McCafferty and appears on the album Dan McCafferty (1975).

It won't be long now, until that ol' sun gets down
And up the stairs I hide, my shameful tears

My wife works all night long, for a man who's halfway gone
She's a barmaid in the honky tonk downstairs

And it's a shame she wears the name
Of a man that's locked in chains
To a bottle that destroys her hopes and cares

To a man with hungry eye's, she works and hides her pride
She's a barmaid in the honky tonk downstairs
