Story Behind the Song

WANTED TO LOOK INSIDE THE MINDS AND MOTIVATIONS OF TYPICAL HONKY TONK PATRONS OF A BYGONE ERA.

Lyrics

HONKY TONK HEAVEN

IT'S A HONKY TONK HEAVEN, OPEN TWENTY FOUR SEVEN LIKE IT SAYS ON THAT RED NEON LIGHT, THEY'VE GOT IT ALL HERE, THE WHISKEY, THE BEER, THE GIRLS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT.

SEE THAT YOUNG COWBOY DANCIN' WITH THE GIRL WHO'S BEEN GLANCIN' AT THE FELLA THAT WORKS AT THE BAR. SHE'LL SPEND THAT BOY'S MONEY BUT THAT BAR GUY'S HER HONEY AND THAT COWBOY I CAN TELL YOU AIN'T GETTING' TOO FAR.
BUT HE'S LAUGHIN' AND DANCIN , HE'S HAVIN' A GOOD TIME AND HER LEAVIN' WON'T BE A SURPRISE, HE'S BEEN HERE BEFORE, AND AS HE HEADS FOR THE DOOR, HE'LL REMEMBER THE THINGS SHE TOLD HIM, THE LIES.

SEE THE GIRL AT THAT TABLE, SHE HARDLY SEEMS ABLE TO TAKE CARE OF HERSELF IN THIS PLACE. SHE'S A HONKY TONK HONEY, SHE'S HERE FOR THE MONEY, BUT THE PRICE THAT SHE'S PAYIN' CAN BE SEEN IN HER FACE.
SHE WAS A WIFE AND A MOTHER, SHE WAS LEFT FOR ANOTHER, NOW SHE'S DOIN' THE BEST THAT SHE CAN. SHE MAKES A LIVIN' BY LOVIN', AND IT'S SAD AND IT'S TROUBLIN', SHE'S MAKIN' BELIEVE AGAIN AND AGAIN.

IT'S A MAKE BELIEVE WORLD HERE FOR THESE FELLAS AND GIRLS HERE, EACH ONE HAS A STORY TO TELL. `BOUT GOOD LOVE GONE BAD OR WHAT THEY ONCE HAD, WHEN THEY WERE ON TOP AND DOIN' SO WELL.
NOW THEY HIDE IN THESE DIM LITES, DREAM AWAY THEIR NITES IN A FANTASY WORLD OF THEIR OWN. THEY HIDE FROM THEIR FEARS, THEY HOLD BACK THEIR TEARS, THEY'RE IN HERE TOGETHER, BUT THEY'RE ALWAYS ALONE.

IT'S A HONKY TONK HEAVEN OPEN TWENTY FOUR SEVEN LIKE IT SAYS ON THAT RED NEON LITE, THEY'VE GOT IT ALL HERE, THE WHISKEY THE BEER, THE GIRLS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT.
