[G]I’m a honkytonk man and I can’t seem to stop
I love to [C]give the girls a whirl to the music of an old [G]jukebox
But when my [D7]money’s all gone I’m on the telephone
Hollerin [C]Hey-hey mama can your daddy come [G]home

I’m livin’ fast and [D7]dangerously
But I’ve got plenty of [G]company
When the moon comes up and the [D7]sun goes down
That’s [C]when I wanna see the lights of [G]town

I’m a honkytonk man and I can’t seem to stop
I love to [C]give the girls a whirl to the music of an old [G]jukebox
But when my [D7]money’s all gone I’m on the telephone
Hollerin’ [C]hey-hey mama can your daddy come [G]home

It takes a pretty little gal and a [D7]jug of wine
That’s what it takes to make a honkytonk [G]mind
With the juke box moanin’ a [D7]honkytonk sound
That’s [C]when I wanna lay my money [G]down
