Garth Brooks – American Honky-Tonk Bar Association, is a song written by Bryan Kennedy and Jim Rushing and recorded by American country music singer Garth Brooks. It was released in September 1993 as the second single from his album In Pieces. The song reached the top of the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) chart.
This song is an uptempo honky-tonk anthem that compares bars to fraternal organizations or support groups for blue collar people. The song’s title name is a pun on the name American Bar Association.
Mike Greenblatt of Modern Screen’s Country Music referred to the song as a “modern day redneck classic sung with a snarl and a smile— except that ill-advised line about welfare recipients.”

Garth Brooks – American Honky-Tonk Bar Association lyrics

[Verse 1]
If your paycheck depends on the weather and the clock
If your conversation calls for a little more than a coffee pot
If you need to pour your heart out and try to rectify some situation, that you’re facin’
Contact your American Honky-Tonk Bar Association
[Verse 2]
When Uncle Sam dips in your pocket, for most things you don’t mind
But when your dollar goes to all of those standin’ in a welfare line
Well, rejoice you have a voice if you’re concerned about the destination, of this great nation
It’s called the American Honky-Tonk Bar Association
[Chorus]
It represents the hardhat, gun rack, achin’ back, overtaxed, flag-wavin’, fun-lovin’ crowd
Well, their heart is in the music and they love to play it loud
There’s no forms or applications, there’s no red tape administrations
It’s the American Honky-Tonk Bar, Association
[Verse 3]
We’re all one big family, throughout the cities and the towns
We don’t reach for handouts, we reach for those who are down
And every local chapter has a seven day a week available consultation, for your frustration
It’s called the American Honky-Tonk Bar Association
[Chorus]
It represents the mud flaps, six-pack, beer crack, overtaxed, flag-wavin’, fun-lovin’ crowd
Well, their heart is in the music and they love to play it loud
There’s no forms or applications, there’s no red tape administrations
It’s the American Honky-Tonk Bar Association
[Outro]
