Chorus:
Honey, honey, honey won't you open that door
This is your sweet daddy don't you love me no more
It's cold outside you make me sleep on the floor
Honey, won't you open that door?

I honkytonked around Dallas
I got in a poker game
Well somebody musta been a cheatin'
I lost everything but my name.

Well, I walked half way to Memphis
I finally got back home
But I'd a been better off where I was
'Cause here's where things went wrong.

Chorus:
Honey, honey, honey won't you open that door
This is your sweet daddy don't you love me no more
It's cold outside you make me sleep on the floor
Honey, won't you open that door?

--- Instrumental ---

I went right down to see old Bob
I thought he was my friend
The landlord said that Bob's not here
The police done hauled him in.

I went right back to little honey's house
I got me a rocking chair
Said, "Honey if you don't open that door
I'm gonna rock on away from here."

Chorus:
Honey, honey, honey won't you open that door
This is your sweet daddy don't you love me no more
It's cold outside you make me sleep on the floor
Honey, won't you open that door?

Chorus:
Honey, honey, honey won't you open that door
This is your sweet daddy don't you love me no more
It's cold outside you make me sleep on the floor
Honey, won't you open that door?

Honey, Honey, Honey, Honey
Now honey, won't you open that door?...
