I like my next-door-neighbor
We do each other favors sometimes
We threw somethin' on the grill
Sat around and chilled just the other night

And we talk about our lawns
And the going's on in our neighborhood
Yeah, he's a real nice guy
That's all fine and good

He ain't my honky tonk friends
Nobody really understands me like them
I love the songs that they sing, I love the drinks that they drink
I love the dances they dance

They don't make fun of my drawl
Keep somethin' cold and tall in my hands
I ain't gonna pretend, they take me just like I am
I love my honky tonk friends

I like my growin' up buddies
We still keep in touch now and then
And them folks down at the office
Really ain't all that stiff

And I met some real good people
Underneath the steeple in town
And I'll still make time for them
But as for right now

I want my honky tonk friends
Nobody really understands me like them
I love the songs that they sing, I love the drinks that they drink
I love the dances they dance

They don't make fun of my drawl, will y'all?
Keep somethin' cold and tall in my hands
I ain't gotta pretend, they take me just like I am
I love my honky tonk friends

Well, we light each other's smokes
And we bend each other's ears
And we laugh at each other's stupid jokes
And we buy each other beers

Then we lose our butts in pool
But we win it back in darts
And we lend each other shoulders
When someone breaks our hearts

I love my honky tonk friends
Nobody really understands me like them
I ain't gotta pretend, they take me just like I am
I love my honky tonk friends

I ain't gotta pretend, they take me just like I am
I love my honky tonk friends
