Bartender won't you pour me a very strong drink
Just keep it coming till I don't have to think
And point out some cowboy that might want to dance
And make sure I get home if you see that I can't

You see I loved him, he left me for a girl half my age
I relate to each sad song that ole jukebox has played
I listen to Haggard, ole Hank, and George Jones
But why don't more women sing honky tonk songs?

Why don't more women sing honky-tonk songs?
About the heartaches and the tough breaks
And the men that's done 'em wrong
There are others just like me that are hurtin' to the bone
So why don't more women sing honky-tonk songs

Why don't more women sing honky tonk songs
Honky tonk angels are just queens without thrones
Judge not lest you be judged, who can cast the first stone
Why don't more women sing honky-tonk songs

Bartender won't you pour me a very strong drink
Just keep it coming till I don't have to think
And point out some cowboy that might want to dance
And make sure I get home if you see that I can't

(All you lonely women sing)
Why don't more women sing honky tonk songs
About the heartaches and the tough breaks
And all the men that's done us wrong
There's a whole lotta women I know would sing along
So why don't more women sing honky tonk songs

Why don't more women sing honky tonk songs
