"Set 'Em Up Joe" as written by Buddy Cannon, Dean Dillon, Hank Cochran and Vern Gosdin....
They got a vintage Victrola 1951
Full of my favorite records that I grew up on
They got ole Hank and Lefty and there's B24
Set 'em up Joe and play "Walking The Floor"
Set 'em up Joe and play "Walking The Floor"

I'm gonna spend the night like every night before
Playin' E.T. and I'll play 'em some more
I've gotta have a shot of them old troubadours
Set 'em up Joe and play "Walking The Floor"
Set 'em up Joe and play "Walking The Floor"

All my neon neighbors they like what I play
'Cause they've heard it every night since you've walked away
Every day they replace old B24
'Cause every night I run a needle through "Walking The Floor"
Every night I run a needle through "Walking The Floor"

I'm gonna spend the night like every night before
Playin' E.T. I'm gonna play 'em some more
I've gotta have a shot of them old troubadours
Set 'em up Joe and play "Walking The Floor"
Set 'em up Joe and play "Walking The Floor"

I said "Set 'em up Joe and play "Walking The Floor"
Set 'em up Joe and play "Walking The Floor"

    General CommentA Victrola is a jukebox that plays records. Hank is Hank Williams (Sr.); Lefty is Lefty Frizzell. Joe, presumably, is the bartender, and "Walking the Floor" is the classic Ernest Tubb song.

    Of course, if you looked up this song, you probably already know all that stuff because you're probably middle-aged or a student of classic country music.
