HONKY TONK MAN
(Johnny Horton - Tillmann Franks - Howard Hausey)
JOHNNY HORTON (COLUMBIA 42302, 1962)

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 jukebox
But when my money's all gone, I'm on the telephone
Hollering, "Hey-hey, mama, can your daddy come home?"

I'm living fast and dangerously, but I've got plenty of company
When the moon comes up and the sun goes down
That's when I want to see the lights uptown

'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 jukebox
But when my money's all gone, I'm on the telephone
Hollering, "Hey-hey, mama, can your daddy come home?"

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 jukebox
But when my money's all gone, I'm on the telephone
Hollering, "Hey-hey, mama, can your daddy come home?"

It takes a pretty little gal and a jug of wine
That's what it takes to make a honky-tonk mine
With the jukebox a-moaning a honky-tonk sound
That's when I want to lay my money down

'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 jukebox
But when my money's all gone, I'm on the telephone
Hollering, "Hey-hey, mama, can your daddy come home?"
