Connie came back from her second cousin's wedding
First time she'd been home in 'bout a year or two
Just in time for the rehearsal dinner
But that crazy Connie wasn't wearing any shoes

[Chorus]
She lives in L.A. she flies to New York City
That woman's been around the world
You can take that girl out of the honky tonk
But you can't take the honky tonk, can't take the honky tonk
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Out of that girl

Well the dinner broke up at about 11:30
And the boys went off to do what boys will do
Connie said come here girls we need to huddle up
Around something that's a hundred proof

[Chorus]

It's nine a.m. in front of the church
People are going nuts just looking for the groom
And by the way where's Connie
She's run off with that boy in Cancun

[Chorus]
