Honky Tonk Song

This song is by Faron Young and appears on the album Country Dance Favorites (1964).

Well, I got me a room
In a cheap hotel
My head was a spinning
And I didn't feel well.

I laid right down
Tried to go to sleep
But the band was playing
In the joint underneath.

I picked up my pillow
When I covered up my head
But the band kept a playing
And a shaking my bed.

Honky tonk all night long
Honky tonk same old song
Honky tonk my money's all gone
Honky tonk she done me wrong...

I turned and I tossed
But I couldn't go to sleep
'Cause the band kept a playing
With a honky tonk beat.

Well, I'm so blue
My baby's gone
She took all my money
And left me all alone.

I'm tryin' to forget her
But I don't know what to do
The honky tonk song
Keeps a leaking through.

I picked up my pillow
And I covered up my head
But the band kept a playing
And a shaking my bed.

Honky tonk all night long
Honky tonk same old song
Honky tonk my money's all gone
Honky tonk she done me wrong...

I turned and I tossed
But I couldn't go to sleep
'Cause the band kept a playing
With a honky tonk beat...
