Honky Tonk Blues

Well, I left my home down on the rural route
And told my folks I'm going stepping out
And get the honky tonk blues
Lord, the honky tonk blues
Well Lord, I got 'em, I got the honky tonk blues

Well I stopped into every place in town
This city life has really got me down
I got the honky tonk blues
Yeah, the honky tonk blues
Oh Lord, I got 'em, I got the honky tonk blues

Well I spent my money, I wore out my shoes
Woke up this morning wishing I could lose
I'm jumping honky tonk blues
Yeah, the honky tonk blues
Oh Lord, I'm suffrin' with the honky tonk blues

Well when I get home to my ma and pa
I know they're gonna lay down the law
About these honky tonk blues
Yeah, the honky tonk blues
Oh Lord, I got 'em, I got the honky tonk blues

I'm gonna tuck my worries underneath my arm
And get right back to my Pappy's farm
And leave these honky tonk blues
Yeah, the honky tonk blues
Oh Lord, I got 'em, I got the honky tonk blues
