lost on a highway
stopped at a strange hotel
now i've been in dives in troubled times
but this was something else

the strangers strangers sipping
on their glasses in the dark
and an old man tapping on a piano
with a couple cutting a rug

they said, "hey young man won't you sing us a song?
see the jukebox needs to be fixed"
well, i ain't got the smile i used to child
but i can still play a lick

and i just want to honkeytonk
and i can honkeytonk so well
yeah i just want to honkeytonk
at the honkeytonk hotel!

well they laughed and cheered and bought me pitchers of beer
and asked if i'd like to stay
i said, "my home is the road and i'd best to be going
but i'd sure to be back some day"

well, they cried and wailed but they understood
they'd seen plenty come and go
"but one more time, please mister i'd love
to hear some honkeytonk!"
