Honky Tonkin’ Man

Honky Tonkin’ Man

I was drinking with my buddies
At our favorite country bar
When a pretty little honey walked up and said
I know exactly who you are
You’re the kind of man my mamma told me
A girl should never, ever trust
But I’ll tell you a secret if you promise
To keep it just between us

Chorus:
She said all the boys want to marry me
But I’m not the marrying kind
So I’ve come to the bad side of town
With trouble on my mind
See I’ve got this little problem
Can you give me a hand
I’m just a honky tonkin’ girl
And I’m looking for a honky tonkin’ man

I said this must be your lucky day
Cause I’m just the guy you need
There ain’t a cowboy left in Texas
Who can hold a candle to me
Here are some quarters for the jukebox
Go play some classic country hits
I’ll take you for a spin on the dance floor
That you won’t ever forget

Chorus:
She said all the boys want to marry me
But I’m not the marrying kind
So I’ve come to the bad side of town
With trouble on my mind
See I’ve got this little problem
Can you give me a hand
I’m just a honky tonkin’ girl
And I’m looking for a honky tonkin’ man

Bridge:
By the time we closed that bar down
A crazy thought had crossed my mind
I said do you think if I called you up
We could get married some time

Chorus:
She said all the boys want to marry me
But I’m not the marrying kind
So I’ve come to the bad side of town
With trouble on my mind
See I’ve got this little problem
Can you give me a hand
I’m just a honky tonkin’ girl
And I’m looking for a honky tonkin’ man

I’m just a honky tonkin’ girl
And I’m looking for a honky tonkin’ man
