Honky Tonkin'

When you are sad and lonely
And have no place to go
Come to see me baby
And bring along some dough
And we'll go honky tonkin', honky tonkin'
Honky tonkin' honey baby
We'll go honky tonkin' 'round this town

When you and your baby
Have a fallin' out
Call me up sweet mama
And we'll go steppin' out
And we'll go honky tonkin', honky tonkin'
Honky tonkin' honey baby
We'll go honky tonkin' 'round this town

We're goin' to the city
To the city fair
If you go to the city, baby
You will find me there
And we'll go honky tonkin', honky tonkin'
Honky tonkin' honey baby
We'll go honky tonkin' 'round this town

Six More Miles

Oh, the rain is slowly falling
And my heart is so sore
Six more miles and leave my darlin'
Never to meet no more

Six more miles to the graveyard
Six more miles long and sad
Six more miles and leave my darlin'
Leave the best friend I ever had

Oh I hear the train a-coming
Bringing my darlin' home
Six more miles to the graveyard
And I'll be left here all alone

My Heart Would Know

I could say it's over now
That I was glad to see you go
I could hate you for the way I'm feeling
My lips could tell a lie
But my heart would know

It's a sin to make me cry
When you know I love you so
I could tell my heart I don't miss you
My lips could tell a lie
But my heart would know

I could give you all the blame
But I'm sure the truth would show
I could tell this world I found a new love
My lips could tell a lie
But my heart would know

I can't fool my cryin' heart
Because it knows I love you so

I could tell my heart I'm glad we parted
My lips could tell a lie
But my heart would know

If You'll Be a Baby to Me

I'll be your baby
And I don't mean maybe
If you'll be a baby to me
I'll be your darlin'
And there'll be no quarrellin'
If you'll be a baby to me

I can plow and milk the cow
I'll even do the churnin'
You just look through your cookbook
And keep the home fires burning
Baby, I'll be your baby
If you'll be a baby to me

I'm A Long Gone Daddy

All you want to do is sit around and pout
And now I got enough, so I'm getting out
I'm leavin' now, I'm leavin' now
I'm a long gone daddy, I don't need you anyhow

I've been in the doghouse so doggone long
That when I get a kiss I think that something's wrong
I'm leavin' now, I'm leavin' now
I'm a long gone daddy, I don't need you anyhow

I'll go find a gal that wants to treat me right
You go get yourself a man that wants to fight
I'm leavin' now, I'm leavin' now

I'm a long gone daddy, I don't need you anyho

You start your jaws a waggin' and they never stop
You never shut your mouth until I blow my top
I'm leavin' now, I'm leavin' now
I'm a long gone daddy, I don't need you anyhow

I'm a gonna do some ridin' on the midnight train
I'm takin' everything except my ball and chain
I'm leavin' now, I'm leavin' now
I'm a long gone daddy, I don't need you anyhow

I'm leavin' now, I'm leavin' now
I'm a long gone daddy, I don't need you anyhow

Weary Blues From Waitin'

Weary blues from waitin'
Lord, I've been waitin' too long
These blues have got me cryin'
Oh, sweet mama, please come home

The snow falls 'round my window
But it can't chill my heart
God knows it died the day you left
My dream world fell apart

Weary blues from waitin'
Lord, I've been waitin' too long
These blues have got me cryin'
Oh, sweet mama, please come home

Through tears I watch young lovers
As they go strolling by
Oh, all the things that might have been
God forgive me if I cry

Weary blues from waitin'
Lord, I've been waitin' too long
These blues have got me cryin'
Oh, sweet mama, please come home

I Saw The Light

I wandered so aimless, life filled with sin
I wouldn't let my dear savior in
Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night
Praise the lord, I saw the light

I saw the light, I saw the light
No more darkness, no more night
Now I'm so happy, no sorrow in sight
Praise the lord, I saw the light

Just like a blind man, I wandered alone
Worries and fears I claimed for my own
Then like the blind man that God gave back his sight
Praise the lord, I saw the light

I was a fool to wander and stray
For straight is the gate and narrow the way
Now I have traded the wrong for the right
Praise the lord, I saw the light

I saw the light, I saw the light

Your Cheatin' Heart

Your cheatin' heart will make you weep
You'll cry and cry and try to sleep
But sleep won't come
The whole night through
Your cheatin' heart will tell on you

When tears come down like fallin' rain
You'll toss around and call my name
You'll walk the floor the way I do
Your cheatin' heart will tell on you

Your cheatin' heart will pine someday
And crave the love you threw away
The time will come when you'll be blue
Your cheatin' heart will tell on you

When tears come down like fallin' rain
You'll toss around and call my name
You'll walk the floor the way I do
Your cheatin' heart will tell on you

I Can't Get You Off Of My Mind

Oh, I can't get you off of my mind
When I try I'm just wasting my time

Lord, I've tried and tried
And all night long I've cried
But I can't get you off of my mind

Didn't think you would leave me behind
But I guess you're the two-timin' kind
Do you think that it's smart
To jump from heart to heart
When I can't get you off of my mind

You believe that a true love is blind
So you feel every new love you find
You've got stars in your eyes
But they can't hide the lies
God, I can't get you off of my mind

There's A Tear In My Beer

There's a tear in my beer
'Cause I'm cryin' for you, dear
You are on my lonesome mind
Into these last nine beers
I have shed a million tears
You are on my lonely mind

I'm gonna keep drinkin' until I'm petrified
And then maybe these tears will leave my eyes

There's a tear in my beer
'Cause I'm cryin' for you, dear
You were on my lonely mind

Last night I walked the floor, and the night before
You were on my lonely mind
It seems my life is through and I'm so goddam blue
You were on my lonely mind

I'm gonna keep drinkin' till I can't move a toe
And then maybe my heart won't hurt me so

There's a tear in my beer
'Cause I'm cryin' for you, dear
You were on my lonely mind

Lord, I've tried and I've tried
But my tears I can't hide
You were on my lonely mind

All these blues that I've found
Have really got me down
You are on my lonely mind

I'm gonna keep on drinkin' till I can't even think
'Cause in the last week I ain't slept a wink

There's a tear in my beer
'Cause I'm cryin' for you, dear
You were on my lonely mind

I Can't Escape From You

I've tried and tried to run and hide
To find a life that's new
But wherever I go I always know
I can't escape from you

A jug of wine to numb my mind
But what good does it do?
The jug runs dry and still I cry
I can't escape from you

These wasted years are souvenirs
Of love I thought was true
Your memory is chained to me
I can't escape from you

There is no end, I can't pretend
That dreams will soon come true
A slave too long to a heart of stone
I can't escape from you
