It's a honky tonk work of art
A still life in a run down bar
Another beer is all I need
To complete this masterpiece
Red eyes and a neon tan
Paint the picture of a lonely man
This ain't no ordinary broken heart
It's a honky tonk work of art

Dim the lights add some thick blue smoke
And just a touch of juke box glow
I'm the master when it comes to hurt
Michelangelo would love my work

It's a honky tonk work of art
A still life in a run down bar
Another beer is all I need
To complete this masterpiece
Red eyes and a neon tan
Paint the picture of a lonely man
This ain't no ordinary broken heart
It's a honky tonk work of art

My critics say I use too much blue
But that's my style since I lost you
Other artists like to work in paints
But I'm a genius with teardrop stains
