Honky Tonk Blues Lyrics

by Huey Lewis & The News

Well I left my home down on the rural route
I told my pa I was going stepping out
And get the honky tonk blues
Yea the honky tonk blues
Hey Lord, I got, I got the honky tonk blues

Well I stepped into every place in town
This city life has really got me down
I got the honky tonk blues
Yea the honky tonk blues
Hey Lord, I got, I got the honky tonk blues

Well I went out last night, I wore out my shoes
Woke up this morning wishing I couldn't lose
Those jumping honky tonk blues
Yea the honky tonk blues
Hey Lord, I got, 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 the honky tonk blues
Yea the honky tonk blues
Hey Lord, I got, I got the honky tonk blues

Well I'm gonna tuck my worries underneath my arm
And scat right back to my Pappy's farm
And lose the honky tonk blues
Yea the honky tonk blues
Hey Lord, I got, I got the honky tonk blues
Hey Lord, I got, I got the honky tonk blues
Hey Lord, I got, I got the honky tonk blues, yea

I've been on the road too long
It's getting lonely out here
Night after night after night after night
Let's go home first
Honky tonk blues
Honky tonk blues
