Buck Owens – Close Up The Honky Tonks lyrics

She's in some honky tonk tonight I know
She's dancin' where the music's loud and lights are low
In a crowded bar she like to hang around
And as long as there's a honky tonk
She'll never settle down

So close up the honky tonks lock all the doors
Don't let the one I love go there anymore
Close up the honky tonks throw away the key
Then maybe the one I love
Will come back to me

I wish I had the power to turn back the time
And live again the hours when she was all mine
For it hurts to see her runnin' with that crowd down town
And as long there's a honky tonk she'll never settle down
