Dwight Yoakam – Honky tonk man Lyrics

[Chorus:]
Well I’m a honky tonk man and I can’t seem to stop
I love to give the girls a whirl to the music of an old juke box
But when my money’s all gone, I’m on the telephone singing
Hey, hey, mama can your daddy come home

Now I’m living wild and dangerously
But I’ve got plenty of company
When the moon comes up and the sun goes down
I can’t wait to see the lights of town

[Chorus:]
‘Cause I’m a honky tonk man and I can’t seem to stop
I love to give the girls a whirl to the music of an old juke box
But when my money’s all gone, I’m on the telephone singing
Hey, hey, mama can your daddy come home

A pretty little girl and a jug of wine
Well that’s what it takes to make a honky tonk time
With the juke box moaning those honky tonk sounds
I can’t wait to lay my money down

[Chorus:]
‘Cause I’m a honky tonk man and I can’t seem to stop
I love to give the girls a whirl to the music of an old juke box
But when my money’s all gone, I’m on the telephone singing
Hey, hey, mama can your daddy come home
