Honky Tonk Night Time Man Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

I'm a honky tonk night time man
I can't stand no light
I'm a honky tonk night time man
I can't stand no light
I get my rest in the daytime
I make my running 'round at night

I had the blues this morning
I had the blues all day today
I had the blues this morning
I had the blues all day today
But when the sun goes down
I'm gonna tuck my blues away, away that's what I said
Boy tuck away

I mean my heart starts beatin'
When the sun starts sinking low
Lord my heart starts beatin'
When that sun starts sinking low
When the shadows fall
I know it's time to go, going on

I'm a honky tonk night time man
I can't stand no light
I'm a honky tonk night time man
I can't stand no light
I get my rest in the daytime
I do my running 'round, 'round at night, alright
