I used to only do it when I partied with my friends
Once or twice a month you know, just every now and then
I started needin’ more and more till I did it everyday
It soon became a habit that I just can’t seem to shake

I get the jonesy for Jones, I’ve got a hanker for Hank
Yeah, when I’m feelin’ down I need them around
To help me through the pain
Anytime that I wanna get stoned all I need is a sad, sad song
It’s the only fix for a honky tonk junkie like me

The first step to recovery isn’t meant and that’s your hook
I’ve tried every twelve step program, I’ve read every self-help book
But there ain’t no cure for an addict who ain’t ready to give it up
No I can’t put it down, that old lonesome sound
I just can’t get enough

I get the jonesy for Jones, I’ve got a hanker for Hank
Yeah, when I’m feelin’ down I need them around
To help me through the pain
Anytime that I wanna get stoned all I need is a sad, sad song
It’s the only fix for a honky tonk junkie like me

I get the jonesy for Jones, I’ve got a hanker for Hank
Yeah, when I’m feelin’ down I need them around
To help me through the pain
Anytime that I wanna get stoned all I need is a sad, sad song
It’s the only fix for a honky tonk junkie like me
Yeah, it’s the only fix for a honky tonk junkie like me
