HONKY TONK BLUES
(Hank Williams)
HANK WILLIAMS (M-G-M 11160, 1952)

Well, I left my home down on the rural route
And told my pa I'm goin' steppin' out
And get the honky tonk blues
Hey, the honky tonk blues
Hey, lord I got 'em, I got the honky tonk blues

Well, I went to a dance now I wore out my shoess
Woke up this morning wishin' I could lose
Them jumpin' honky tonk blues
Hey, the honky tonk blues
Oh lord I got 'em, I got the honky tonk blues

Hey, I stopped into every place place in town
This city life has really got me down
I got the honky tonk blues
Hey, the honky tonk blues
Hey, lord I got 'em, I got the honky tonk blues

I'm gonna tuck my worries underneath my arms
And scat right back to my pappy's farm
And leave these honky tonk blues
Hey, the honky tonk blues
Oh lord I got 'em, I got the honky tonk blues
