If the whole world was a honky tonk
And it revolved around an old jukebox
We'd tell our troubles to the Bar
Over cryin' steel guitars and soon, they'd all be gone

Yeah, if you asked me what I thought
I'd say, "We'd be better off
If the whole world was a honky tonk"

You could smoke that cigarette
An' be politically incorrect
Show off that red 'round your neck
Not hear a single soul object

Wouldn't need no lawyers to decide
Who is wrong and who is right
No need for big expensive trials
An' brother, we'd just step outside

If the whole world was a honky tonk
And it revolved around an old jukebox
We'd tell our troubles to the Bar
Over cryin' steel guitars and soon, they'd all be gone

Yeah, if you asked me what I thought
I'd say, "We'd be better off
If the whole world was a honky tonk"

Wouldn't have to pay no tax
Just set a tip jar in the back
If we ran low, we'd pass the hat
I bet, we'd all be in the black
If the whole world was a honky tonk

And if you're lookin' for love
Someone to heal that broken heart
Hey buddy, you'd be in half
You wouldn't have to go that far

If the whole world was a honky tonk
And it revolved around an old jukebox
We'd tell our troubles to the Bar
Over cryin' steel guitars and soon, they'd all be gone

If you asked me what I thought
I'd say, "We'd be better off
If the whole world was a honky tonk"

Life would be a three chord song
And the king would be George Jones
If the whole world was a honky tonk
