HONKY TONK GAL (Carl Perkins) Carl Perkins Also recorded by: Eddy & The Backfires; Little Boy Arnold; Rusti Steel & the Tin Tax. Guitar intro It took a light from a honky-tonk Put the beam in your eye It took a record from a jukebox And it bid my gal goodbye And now she's gone, honky-tonk gal Oh, she said she didn't love me She didn't care no more She'd rather spend her life now On a honky-tonk hardwood floor But I'll be gone, honky-tonk gal Guitar break Someday you'll come back cryin' Someday you will be blue And that mean ol' honky-tonkin' life Will get the best off you But I'll be gone, honky-tonk gal Lord, I stand right up and tell you I sit right down and cry Sweetheart if you should leave me now I know I'll lay and die And I'll be gone, honky-tonk gal Guitar break It took a light from a honky-tonk Put the beam in your eye It took a record from a jukebox And it bid my gal goodbye And now she's gone, honky-tonk gal La, da, dee, la, da, do, La, da, dee, la, da, do, La, da, dee, la, da, do, La, da, dee, la, da, do, You'd rather spend your life On a honky-tonk hardwood floor But I'll be gone, honky-tonk gal (Contributed by Claude Lemasson - May 2006)
