"Honky Tonk Song" as written by Mel Tillis and A. R. Peddy....
I saw those blue lights flashin' over my left shoulder
He walked right up and said get off that riding mower
I said sir let me explain before you put me in the tank
She took my keys away and now she won't drive me to drink
I need a honky tonk song a cold cold beer
A hardwood floor a smoky atmosphere
A pocket full of change to last me all night long
I gotta hear old Hank a moanin' a honky tonk song

He didn't show me much compassion when I tried to walk that line
As he put those handcuffs on me I said give me one more try
He never even cracked a smile when he threw me in the car
So I said sir if you don't mind oh would you drop me off in a bar
I need a honky tonk song
I gotta hear old Hank a moanin' a honky tonk song
