Chorus:
If the whole world was a honky tonk
And it revolved around an old jukebox
We’d tell our troubles to the bar
Over cryin’ steel guitars
And soon they’d all be gone
If you asked me what I thought
I’d say we’d be better off
If the whole world was a honky tonk

You could smoke that cigarette
Be politically incorrect
Show off that red around your neck
Not hear a single soul object

Wouldn’t need no lawyers to decide
Who is wrong and who is right
No need for big expensive trials
Brother we’d just step outside

Repeat Chorus

Wouldn’t have to pay no tax
Just set a tip jar in the back
If we ran low we’d pass the hat
I bet we’d all be in the black
If the whole world was a honky tonk

And if you’re lookin’ for love
Someone to heal that broken heart
Hey, buddy, you’d be in luck
You wouldn’t have to go that far

Repeat Chorus

Life would be a three chord song
And the king would be George Jones
If the whole world was a honky tonk
