"Honky Tonk Man" lyrics - ROBERT GORDON

"Honky Tonk Man"
(Tillman Franks / Howard Hausey / Johnny Horton)

I'm a honky tonk man, and I cain't seem to stop.
I love to give the girls a whirl to the music of an old jukebox.
But when my money's all gone, I'm on the telephone
Callin' he-ey moma can you're daddy come home?

I'm livin' fast and dangerously, but I've got plenty of company.
When the moon comes up and the sun goes down
That's when I wanna see the lights of town.

[Chorus 2x]

It takes a purdy little gal and a jug of wine,
That's what it takes to make a honky tonk mind.
With the jukebox a moanin' a honky tonk sound
That's when I wanna lay my money down.
