Honky Tonk Song

This song is by George Jones and appears on the album I Lived to Tell It All (1996).

(Frank J. Meyers - Billy Yates)

I saw those blue lights flashin'
Over my left shoulder
He walked right up and said,
"Get off that riding mower."
I said sir, "Let me explain
Before you put me in the tank."
She took my keys away
And now she won't drive me to drink.

I need a honky tonk song a cold cold beer
A hardwood floor a smoky atmosphere
A pocket full of change to last me all night long
I gotta hear old Hank a moanin' a honky tonk song.

--- Instrumental ---

He didn't show me much compassion
When I tried to walk that line
As he put those handcuffs on me
I said, "give me one more try."
He never even cracked a smile
When he threw me in the car
So I said, "Sir, if you don't mind,
Oh, would you drop me off in a bar."

I need a honky tonk song a cold cold beer
A hardwood floor a smoky atmosphere
A pocket full of change to last me all night long
I gotta hear old Hank a moanin' a honky tonk song.

I gotta hear old Hank a moanin' a honky tonk song...
