Johnny Horton – Honky Tonk Man Lyrics

 

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

Callin’, “Hey moma, can your daddy come home?”

 

I’m livin’ fast and dangerously

But I’ve got plenty of company

When the moon comes up and the sun goes down

That’s when I wanna see the lights of town

 

‘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

Callin’, “Hey moma, 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

Callin’, “Hey moma can your daddy come home?”

 

It takes a purdy little gal and a jug of wine

That’s what it takes to make a honky tonk mind

With the jukebox a moanin’ a honky tonk sound

That’s when I wanna 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

Callin’, “Hey moma, can your daddy come home?”
