Honky Tonk Song Lyrics

by Terri Clark

One more margarita was one bad idea
Now you don't know where you left your car
And the rent's overdue, well, imagine that
And you think you might die from a broken heart

Well, you've told us all, you're life's a total wreck
Then you might not want to hear what's comin' next

'Cause this is a honky tonk song
One of those get another beer, bend another ear
Somebody did somebody wrong songs

Between the pain and the pinin', cussin' and the cryin'
It might be ten minutes long
Hey, but that's okay, this is a honky tonk song

Now this is for Alice way out in Dallas
Who got dumped at the Burger King
And this is for Bobby who just quit his job
He's movin' out to Nashville to sing

For that long haul trucker who won't be home for supper
'Cause he's stranded on the side of the road
For everybody lonesome, everybody blue, yeah

Yeah, this is a honky tonk song
One of those get another beer, bend another ear
Somebody did somebody wrong songs

Between the pain and the pinin', cussin' and the cryin'
It might be ten minutes long
Hey but that's okay, this is a honky tonk song, oh, yeah

It's for that good ol' boy preachin', dealin' with the deacons
And the little ladies with the beehive hair-do's
And what about the waitress who don't think she can take it
Standin' on her feet one more night

For that Nascar racer that never sees
The checkered flag wavin' crazy for him
For everyone who feels like
They were born to lose

Yeah, this is a honky tonk song
One of those get another beer, bend another ear
Somebody did somebody wrong songs

Between the pain and the pinin', cussin' and the cryin'
It might be ten minutes long
Hey, but that's okay, this is a honky tonk song

It's when the pain and the pinin', cussin' and the cryin'
This thing is goin' on forever, Lord
It feels like it's ten years long
Hey but that's okay this is a honky tonk song
It's a honky tonk song another honky tonk song
