Honky Tonk Blues Lyrics

by Hank Williams

Well, I left my home down on the Rural Route
I told my pa I'm going stepping 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 bar, wore out my shoes
Woke up this morning wishing I could lose
I'm jumping honky tonk blues
Hey, the honky tonk blues

Oh, 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
Hey, the honky tonk blues

Hey Lord, I got 'em
I got the honky tonk blues

I'm gonna tuck my worries underneath my arm
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
