Honky Tonk Women Lyrics
(Well all right
Well all right
Well all right
Wooh
Well all right
Charlie's good tonight, isn't 'e?)

[First Verse:]
I met a gin soaked bar-room queen in Memphis
She tried to take me upstairs for a ride
She had to heave me right across her shoulder
Cause I just can't seem to drink you off my mind

[Chorus:]
It's the honky tonk women
That give me, give me, give me the honky tonk blues

[Second Verse*:]
I laid a divorcee in New York City,
I had to put up some kind of a fight.
The lady then she covered me in roses,
She blew my nose and then she blew my mind.

It's the honky tonk women
That give me, give me, give me the honky tonk blues
(all right)

It's the honky tonk women
That give me, give me, give me the honky tonk blues

It's the honky tonk women
That give me, give me, give me the honky tonk blues


[*Alternate Second Verse:]
Strollin' on the boulevards of Paris
As naked as the day that I will die
The sailors they're so charming there in Paris
But they just don't seem to sail you off my mind
