Well, I walked in to one of my old haunts
It used to be a honky-tonk heaven
Some old slicker done bought the place
An' lit it up like a 7-11

Yes, they fired the band that used to play
'Okie From Muskogee'
An' hired some dude with his hat on back'ards
Singin' hip hop and karaoke

Should'a know it was gonna happen
Bein' this close town
Oh, but I know a beer joint back in the woods
That them city folks still ain't found

You make a right at the stomp with the barbed wire in it
Where the old church used to be
Then a mile mad curve on the gravel
Gonna throw you right off the road into Choctaw Creek

There's a one-lane bridge, just keep it in the middle
Pretty soon that road's gonna end
Welcome to Ray Ray's Juke Joint down in the holler
Y'all come back again, mmm

We got ice-cold beer an' chicken an' ribs
Cookin' on the grill out back
Three plays for a quarter on the jukebox in the corner
An' it's full of Hank Haggard an' Cash

They got a long-legged waitress wearin' cut-off jeans
She's quick to take your order
Better leave her a tip but don't give her no lip, y'all
That girl is Ray Ray's daughter

They'll make you feel like family
An' everybody is your friend
But there's been folks messed up down there
That ain't never been seen again

You make a right at the stomp with the barbed wire in it
Where the old church used to be
Where the mile mad curve on the gravel
Gonna throw you right off the road into Choctaw Creek

There's a one-lane bridge, just keep it in the middle
Pretty soon that road's gonna end
Welcome to Ray Ray's Juke Joint down in the holler
Y'all come back again

Yeah, you make a right at the stomp with the barbed wire in it
Where the old church used to be
Where the mile mad curve on the gravel
Gonna throw you right off the road into Choctaw Creek

There's a one-lane bridge, just keep it in the middle
Pretty soon that road gonna end
Welcome to Ray Ray's Juke Joint down in the holler
Y'all come back again

Welcome to Ray Ray's Juke Joint down in the holler
Y'all come back again
Ah, don't be scared
Nice place, mmm
