I've been riding this train a long time
And I'm still trying to unwind
All my rowdy friends have settled down
I'm out on the road just looking around
For that engineer of love to set me free
'Cause I'm locked up in this world of misery

And we ride on the honky tonk train
Everynight life in the fast lane
There's a woman on the dancefloor, she's messing with my brain
Well here goes my heart, pour on the cold honky tonk train

Everybody's got problems that's no lie
Everybody's got somebody on their mind
They wanna get on board and just leave their problems behind
And their engines are burning hard for honky tonk wine
So I take my guitar and make that little string moan
And they're moving on down the line like Casey Jones

Yeah we ride on the honky tonk train
Everynight life in the fast lane
There's a woman on the dancefloor, she's messing with my brain
Here goes my heart, pour on the cold honky tonk train

Yeah we ride on the honky tonk train
Everynight life in the fast lane
There's a woman on the dancefloor, she's messing with my brain
Here goes my heart, pour on the cold honky tonk train

Can I ever get off this honky tonk train
Everynight I'm living a hard driving fast lane
Hard driving fast land
Riding the honky tonk train
Riding the honly tonk train
