"Honky Tonk Night Time Man" as written by and Haggard....
Little bit of Bakersfield
I'm a honky tonk night time man
I can't stand no light
I'm a honky tonk night time man
I can't stand no light
I get my rest in the day time
Do my runnin' around at night

I had the blues this morning
Had the blues all day today
I had the blues this morning
Had the blues all day today
Well I wish a tornado
Come and blow my blues away, away
That's what I said, take 'em away

Sounds like Roy
Yeah

And then my heart starts beatin'
When that sun starts sinkin' low
Well my heart starts beatin'
When that sun starts sinkin' low
When the shadows fall
I know its time for me to go

Billy Powell on piano
Oh Barry, play me some dobro
I'm a honky tonk night time man
I can't stand no light
I'm a honky tonk night time man
I can't stand no light
I get my rest in the day time
I do my runnin' around, round at night
I get my rest in the day time
Gets that old love sweet stuff at night

    General CommentI'm mad at everyone I know that I've never heard this song before. Even if I was incoherently intoxicated, someone should have just insisted I listen to this.
