Poco – Honky Tonk Downstairs lyrics

Well, it won't be long now
Until that ol' sun goes down
And darkness helps me hide my shameful tears
My wife works all night long
For a man who's halfway gone
She's a barmaid in the Honky Tonk Downstairs

It's a shame she wears the name
Of a man who's locked and chained
To a bottle that's destroyed all hopes and cares
To the men with hungry eyes
She works and hides her pride
She's a barmaid in the Honky Tonk Downstairs
