"Honky Tonk Truth" as written by William Lonnie Wilson, Ronnie Gene Dunn and Kim Williams....
I'm the life of the party baby since you said good bye
Just ask old Joe He knows I'm here every night
And that good old boy in the mirror looking around for you
It ain't me

And that's the honky tonk truth.
That's the honky tonk truth cross my broken heart
I put my right hand here on this beer And swear on this bar
I ain't thinking I ain't drinking I ain't crying

I ain't moaning the blues
I wouldn't lie to you
Now that's the honky tonk truth
Don't think I'll come crawling back 'cause I don't miss you

If you walked up and puckered up, girl
I wouldn't bother to kiss you
And that washed up, broken down fool
Hanging out on that stool Well it ain't me

Now that's the honky tonk truth.
That's the honky tonk truth cross my broken heart
I put my right hand here on this beer And swear on this bar
I ain't thinking, I ain't drinking, I ain't crying

I ain't moaning the blues
I wouldn't lie to you
Now that's the honky tonk truth

    General CommentRight, seems pretty straight forward, but it needs to be clarified for some, and those who havn't seen the video

    When he's talking about how he "ain't thinking, ain't drinkin', ain't crying, ain't moanin' in the blues" he is lying, as the video suggest. So the whole song is vefry ironic
