CLOSE UP THE HONKY-TONKS (Red Simpson) Buck Owens - 1964 Kay Adams - 1967 Bobby Hodge - 1971 Dwight Yoakam - 2007 Also recorded by: The Hacker Brothers; Jimmy Griggs. She's in some honky-tonk tonight I know She's dancing where the music's loud and lights are low In a crowed bar she likes to hang around And as long as there's a honky-tonk, she'll never settle down So close up the honky-tonks, lock all the doors Don't let the one I love go there any more Close up the honky-tonks, throw away the key Then maybe the one I love will come back to me I wish I had the power to turn back the time And live again the hours when she was all mine But it hurts to see her running with that crowd downtown And as long as there's a honky-tonk, she'll never settle down So close up the honky-tonks, lock all the doors Don't let the one I love go there any more Close up the honky-tonks, throw away the key Then maybe the one I love will come back to me (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2017)
