"Honky Tonk Song" as written by Mel Tillis and A. R. Peddy....
I got me a room in a cheap hotel
My head was a spinning and I didn't feel well
I laid right down and I tried to go to sleep
But the band was playing in the joint underneath

I picked up my pillow when I covered up my head
But the band kept a playing and a shaking my bed

Honky tonk all night long, honky tonk same old song
Honky tonk my money's all gone, honky tonk she done me wrong
I turned and I tossed but I couldn't go to sleep
'Cause the band kept a playing with a honky tonk beat

Well, I'm so blue when my baby's gone
She took all my money and she left me all alone
I'm trying to forget her but I don't know what to do
'Cause the honky tonk song keeps a leaking through

I picked up my pillow when I covered up my head
But the band kept a playing and a shaking my bed

Honky tonk all night long, honky tonk same old song
Honky tonk my money's all gone, honky tonk she done me wrong
I turned and I tossed but I couldn't go to sleep
'Cause the band kept a playing with a honky tonk beat
