American Honky - Tonk Bar Association Lyrics

by Garth Brooks

If your paycheck depends on
The weather and the clock
If your conversation calls for
A little more than a coffee pot

If you need to pour your heart out
And try to rectify some situation
That you're facing
Contact your American Honky-Tonk Bar Association

When Uncle Sam dips in your pocket
For most things you don't mind
But when your dollar goes to all of those
Standin' in a welfare line

Rejoice, you have a voice
If you're concerned about the destination
Of this great nation
It's called the American Honky-Tonk Bar Association

It represents the hardhat, gun rack, achin'-back
Over-taxed, flag-wavin', fun lovin' crowd
Their heart is in the music and they love to play it loud

There's no forms or no applications
There's no red tape administrations
It's the American Honky-Tonk Bar Association

We're all one big family
Throughout the cities and the towns
We don't reach for handouts
We reach for those who are down

And every local chapter
Has a seven day a week available consultation
For your frustration
It's called the American Honky-Tonk Bar Association

It represents the mud flaps, six pack, beer crack
Over-taxed, flag-wavin', fun lovin' crowd
Well their heart is in the music and they love to play it loud

There's no forms or no applications
There's no red tape administrations
It's the American Honky-Tonk Bar Association
Go join your American Honky-Tonk Bar Association

Do not delay, contact today
Your A.H.B.A., your A.H.B.A.
