Jonathan East - Old Honky Tonker Lyrics


Well we ride into town in a beat up van, got our name on the side like rock n roll band
Steariní out a cracked windshield with one headlight
Got our guitars and were reariní to go, down to Larson City for a 3 hour show
If we ainít half bad I know there gonna treat us right
Oh whatever made me wanna live like this, gotta get stoned just to get my fix
Like it or not there ainít no turniní round
LIke a fright train rolliní out through the night got the pedal to the medal honey hold on tight
Gypsy life I know wonít let me down

(Chorus)
See I was born to be a guitar picker guess I had a soft spot for the women and liquor
Itís a wonder how I kept my sanity
I played in every bar from here to Memphis drinkiní like Hank and singiní like Elvis
Folks out west didnít think awhole lotta me
Guess an Old Honky Tonkers bout all Iíll ever be

Well I had a little woman back in San Anton times got rough and I moved on
Left her cryiní in a trailer by the county line
So I bought a guitar and I found me a band grew out my beard became a traveliní man
Playiní one night shows in any place we could find
County fairs and micro clubs sang about whiskey, fast women and love
And itís all the same just as long as we can make a buck
Well we play it fast and we play it so from Mustang Sally down to Curtis Loew
And when the bottles fly we just smile and turn it up

(Chorus)
See I was born to be a guitar picker guess I had a soft spot for the women and liquor
Itís a wonder how I kept my sanity
I played in every bar from here to Memphis drinkiní like Hank and singiní like Elvis
Folks out west didnít think awhole lotta me
Guess an Old Honky Tonkers bout all Iíll ever be

Well the night is young and the beer is cold the women are sweet and my lines are old
But it all comes together when we get down and start to play
Guess thereís somethiní bout the sound of a Gibson flat top
Crankiní out loud just pickiní it non stop
Get on the floor and two step the night away

(Chorus)
See I was born to be a guitar picker guess I had a soft spot for the women and liquor
Itís a wonder how I kept my sanity
I played in every bar from here to Memphis drinkiní like Hank and singiní like Elvis
Folks out west didnít think awhole lotta me
Guess an Old Honky Tonkers bout all Iíll ever be
