Wayne Mills – The Last Honky Tonk lyrics

Well the way things are going
It won't be very long
Till them flashing neon signs
Are all but gone
They say the nightlife ain't the right life
Pour the whiskey down the drain
Melt down all those 45's
That talk about trucks and trains

CHORUS
I'll be there when they burn
The last honky-tonk down
In body, mind, and spirit
Under the table or under the ground
The fading echoes of a bar-room band
Might be the only sound
I'll be there when they burn
The last honky-tonk down

Pull the jukebox from the ashes
Dust it off, and turn it on
We'll dance in the burning embers until dawn
We'll pull a double from the row
And we'll drink to the good ol' days
Sit there till the smoke clears
And my last selection plays

CHORUS
I'll be there when they burn
The last honky-tonk down
In body, mind, and spirit
Under the table or under the ground
The fading echoes of a bar-room band
Might be the only sound
I'll be there when they burn
The last honky-tonk down

INST.

CHORUS
I'll be there when they burn
The last honky-tonk down
In body, mind, and spirit
Under the table or under the ground
The fading echoes of the bar-room band
Might be the only sound
I'll be there when they burn
The last honky-tonk down

I'll be there when they burn
The last honky-tonk down
