​Honky Tonk Special

This song is by Marty Brown and appears on the album High & Dry (1991).

Daddy says he'll be back in a while
And he kisses my mama and smiles a wicked smile
But we all know where he's headed just the same
And down deep inside it kinda fills me with a shame

Well I'm singin' this song to some ladies they all know who they are
They hang out in our towns in all the honky tonk bars
Well they live in sin and take our daddys away
Well this is what I think and what I have to say

Oh honky tonk special won't you leave my daddy alone
You know he'd be better off with my mama at home
In her arms and not by some old stranger's side
Honky tonk special you're not my daddy's wife

I know my mama wouldn't want me to be aware
Hey but it chills me to my bones just to know my daddy's there
You know that I love him but down deep inside it hurts
Just to know my daddy's out somewhere with her

Well maybe I can write this song and become a country star
Then they'll play my song in all the honky tonk bars
And if daddy and his special are listening maybe then they'll see the light
Cause honky tonk special you're not my daddy's wife

So honky tonk special won't you leave my daddy alone.
Yeah honky tonk special you're not my daddy's wife
