Song Description

An up and coming musician sings about the joys of his hometown bar, even as he starts making his moves towards the big time.

Story Behind the Song

It just came to me like a dream while driving one day. Pulled off at a Bob Evans restaurant and mostly had it finished by the time I left.

Lyrics

I ain't never been to Memphis
I've been to Nashville almost two times
I had high hopes when I sent this song
To a producer friend of mine
Well I ain't never had a hit
And I ain't no country star
But I sure do like to strum a tune
Down at the honky tonk bar

Chorus:
At the honky tonk bar
In my hometown
Besides that I don't get much around
That's where I like to drink my beer
I feel like the king when I'm in here

Still someday I'll get to Memphis
Stop in Nashville on the way through
And when I get all the way down
I'm sing this song for you

'Bout the honky tonk bar
In my hometown
Besides that I don't get much around
That's where I like to drink my beer
I feel like the king when I'm in here

Gonna sing my song to Elvis
With the microphone he used on hound dog
And when I get done I'll have a bigger hit
Than Jeremiah D. Bullfrog

(To the tune of chorus)
At the honky bars in Memphis
And all over Tennessee
I suppose that I'll have to play them all
But the only bar for me

(Chorus)
Is the the honky tonk bar
In my hometown
Besides that I don't get much around
That's where I like to drink my beer
Feel like the king when I'm in here
