Well I got me a room in a cheap hotel my head was a spinning and I didn't feel well
I laid right down 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
[ piano ]
Well I'm so blue my baby's gone she took all my money and left me all alone
I'm tryin' to forget her but I don't know what to do
The honky tonk song keeps a leaking through
I picked up my pillow and I covered up my head
But the band kept a playing and a shaking my bed
Honky tonk all night long...
