Texas Honky-Tonk

Well, it's Saturday night and the moon is out
you get dressed up and I'll get dolled-out
and we'll go down to a Texas honky-tonk

Yeah, I wanna go where the people meet
where the men are rugged and the girls are sweet
so take me out to a Texas honky-tonk


We'll dance all night to the two-step
and drink a little Shiner beer
where you can hear the band from the parking lot
and all of our friends are there

We'll go to that place where we like to go
we'll spend our time and we'll spend our dough
at the bona fide, good-time, Texas honky-tonk

I've dreamed all week of dancin' cheek-to-cheek
listenin' to my favorite song
We'll scoot our boots 'cross the sawdust floor
waltz across Texas 'til dawn
while the band plays on and on...

At that bona fide, chicken-fried, Texas honky-tonk
