Aaron Watson – The Honky Tonk Kid lyrics

He's wrinkled and gray but he's still got the fire
And he sings on the stage like a bird on a wire
He'll pack 'em in just like he always did
Everybody loves The Honky Tonk Kid

He got his first guitar when he was fifteen
Thirstin' for knowledge, all hungry and green
Strummin' that six string just like Lefty did
Everybody loves The Honky Tonk Kid

[Chorus:]
Well the Honky Tonk Kid loves a honky tonk crowd
He picks them up when this world gets them down
All the smoke and the neon keep his pain here
Nobody knows The Honky Tonk Kid

Ten million fans and a hand full of friends
He'll go home alone when each night ends
He'll think about her and he'll twist off the lid
Cause nobody loves The Honky Tonk Kid

Chorus (x2)

It won't be long the lord will take him away
He'd sung his last song, they'll place a reef on his grave
But he'll draw a crowd just like he always did
One last goodbye for The Honky Tonk Kid
