Honky Tonk Man

Johnny Horton - Tillman Franks - Howard Hausey

© Cedarwood Publ, BMI

I'm a honky tonk man and I can't seem to stop
Love to give the girls a whirl to the music of an old jukebox
When my money's all gone I'm on the telephone
Singin' hey hey mama can your daddy come home

Well now I go wild and dangerously
But I've got plenty of company
When the moon comes up and the sun goes down
That's when I can to see the lights of town

I'm a honky tonk man and I can't seem to stop...
[ guitar ]
I'm a honky tonk man and I can't seem to stop...

Hey now a purty little gal and a jug of wine
That's what it takes to make a honky tonk mind
With the jukebox a moanin' honky tonk sound
That's when I can to lay my money down

Cause I'm a honky tonk man and I can't seem to stop...
I'm a honky tonk man and I can't seem to stop...

It Won't Hurt

Dwight Yoakam

© Coal Dust West Music, BMI

It won't hurt when I fall down from this barstool
And it won't hurt when I stumble in the street
It won't hurt cause this whiskey eases misery
But even whiskey cannot ease you're hurtin' me

Today I had another bout with sorrow
You know this time I almost won
If this bottle would just hold out till tomorrow
Well I know that I'd have sorrow on the run

It won't hurt when I fall down from this barstool...
[ fiddle ]
You mem'ry comes back up with each sunrise
I reach out for the bottle and find it's gone
Yeah Lord somewhere every night the whiskey leaves me
To face this cold cold world on my own

But it won't hurt when I fall down from this barstool...
Even whiskey cannot ease you're hurtin' me

I'll Be Gone

Dwight Yoakam

© Coal Dust West Music, BMI

I watch as you take off your clothes and slip under the sheets
Then I turn and kick the boots off my feet
Hey I pull you close without a word cause there's no need to speak
Girl beauty like yours is hard to beat

But I'll be gone in the morning in the morning I'll be gone
Cause I'm not one for hanging on
Hey please don't think that you done something wrong
In the morning when you wake and find me gone
[ guitar ]
Just a look from this fiery eyes can all but erase
The mem'ry of any other's face
And the passion they unleash could cause me to misplace
And lose all track of time without a trace

But I'll be gone in the morning in the morning I'll be gone...
[ fiddle ]
The sun intrudes and throws across the room its golden tracks
Shake the dreams now it's back to facts
As I turn to leave I know you had what so many lack
Maybe some day that'll bring me back

But I'll be gone in the morning in the morning I'll be gone...
I'll be gone in the morning in the morning I'll be gone...
In the morning when you wake and find me gone

South Of Cincinnati

Dwight Yoakam

© Coal Dust West Music, BMI

If you ever get south of Cincinnati down where the dogwood trees grow
If you ever get south of the Mason Dixon to the home you left so long ago
If you ever get south of the Ohio River down where the Dixieland begins
If you ever get south of Cincinnati I'll be yours again

She pulled the letter from the pages of her Bible
And a rose pressed inside the Book of Luke
For fourteen years she'd write each day but keep it hidden
Refuse to even speak his name but still she wrote

If you ever get south of Cincinnati down where the dogwood trees grow...
[ fiddle ]
At a cold gray apartment in Chicago
A cigarette drowns inside a glass of gin
He lies there drunk but it don't matter drunk or sober
He'll never read the words that pride won't let her send

If you ever get south of Cincinnati down where the dogwood trees grow...
I'll be yours again

Bury Me

Dwight Yoakam

© Coal Dust West Music, BMI

with Maria McKee

Bury me along the big sandy down in those blue gray mountains
Rest my soul in those hills of coal until this old earth does tremble
Now don't you mourn for me when my soul is free no woman don't you cry
You just bury me along the big sandy under a blue Kentucky sky

This old town of sin it's about to do me in
I don't know how much I can stand
With my knees on the street and my heart at their feet
I'm forced to beg from Satan's hand

So bury me along the big sandy down in those blue gray mountains...
[ dobro - fiddle - guitar ]
When I came to this land I was strong and I could stand
But now I've somehow gone astray
Yet I still see the truth in the teaching of my youth
And I know that the Lord ain't turned away

So bury me along the big sandy down in those blue gray mountains...
Under a blue Kentucky sky under a blue Kentucky sky

Guitars Cadillacs

Dwight Yoakam

© Coal Dust West Music, BMI

Girl you taught me how to hurt real bad and cry myself to sleep
You showed me how this town can shatter dreams
Another lesson bout a naive fool that came to Babylon
And found out that the pie don't taste so sweet

Now it's guitars Cadillacs hillbilly music
And lonely lonely streets I call home
Yeah my guitars Cadillacs hillbilly music
It's the only thing that keeps me hanging on
[ guitar - fiddle ]
There ain't no glamour in this tinseled land of lost and wasted last
And painful scars are all that's left of me
Oh but thank you girl for teaching me brand new ways to be cruel
And if I can find my mind now I guess I'll just leave

Now it's guitars Cadillacs hillbilly music...
[ guitar - fiddle ]
Oh it's guitars Cadillacs hillbilly music...
It's the only thing that keeps me hanging on
It's the only thing that keeps me hanging on

Twenty Years

Dwight Yoakam

© Coal Dust West Music, BMI

Well look yonder Henry comes the sheriff and he's carrying a warrant in his hand
Don't you run poor old Henry for he'll shoot you not long will you be a free man

Now twenty years you must spend behind steel bars for a crime that you did not do
Yeah the lie she swore in that district court has proved to be the ruin of you

Tried to warn you Henry not to cross her tried to tell you about her vengeful ways
When you turned and left her for another she swore Henry that she'd make you pay

Now twenty years you must spend behind steel bars for a crime that you did not do...
[ guitar - fiddle ]
Listen well all you young rounders heed the lesson poor old Henry never learned
That even hell with all its fiery power hath no fury like a woman's scorn

Now twenty years you must spend behind steel bars for a crime that you did not do...
Yeah the lie she swore in that district court has proved to be the ruin of you

Ring Of Fire

Merle Kilgore - June Carter

© Painted Desert Music, BMI

Love is a burning thing and it makes a fiery ring
Bound by wild desire I fell into a ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down down down and the flames fly higher
And it burns burns burns the ring of fire the ring of fire
[ fiddle ]
I fell into a burning ring of fire...

The taste of love is sweet when hearts like ours meet
I fell for you like a child ooh but the fire went wild

Well I fell into a burning ring of fire...
[ fiddle ]
I fell into a burning ring of fire...
I fell into a burning ring of fire...

Lord it burns burns burns the ring of fire the ring of fire
Ring of fire ring of fire

Miner's Prayer

Dwight Yoakam

© Coal Dust West Music, BMI

When the whistle blows each morning
And I walk down in that cold dark mine
I say a prayer to my dear Saviour
Please let me see the sunshine one more time

When oh when will it be over
When will I lay these burdens down
And when I die dear Lord in heaven
Please take my soul from neath that cold dark ground

I still grieve for my poor brother
And I still hear my dear old mother cry
When late that night they came and told her
He'd lost his life down in the Big Shoal Mine

When oh when will it be over...
[ dobro ]
I have no shame I feel no sorrow
If on this earth not much I own
I have the love of my sweet children
An old plow mule a shovel and a hoe

When oh when will it be over...

Yeah when I die dear Lord in heaven
Please take my soul from neath that cold dark ground

Heartaches By The Number

Harlan Howard

© Pamper Music, BMI

Heartache number one was when you left me
I never knew that I could hurt this way
And heartache number two was when you come back again
You came back and never meant to stay

Now I've got heartaches by the number troubles by the score
Every day you love me less each day I love you more
Now I've got heartaches by the number a love that I can't win
But the day that I stop counting that's the day my world will end
[ steel - fiddle ]
Heartache number three was when you called me
And told you were coming back to stay
With hoping heart I waited for your knock upon the door
I waited but you must have lost your way

Now I've got heartaches by the number troubles by the score...
Oh the day that I stop counting that's the day my world will end
