Capo 4

A             D        E        A
One more margarita was one bad idea
        D                    E
Now you don't know where you left your car
        A          D          E            A
And the rent's overdue, well, imagine that
        D               A          E      A
And you think you might die from a broken heart
             D       D/C#     D/B      D/A   E
Well, you've told us all your life's a total wreck
         D         D/C#    D/B         D/A    E
Then you might not want to hear what's comin' next

      A                    D
Cause this is a honky tonk song
             E                                                         A
One of those get another beer, bend another ear. somebody did somebody wrong songs
Between the pain and the pinin', cussin' and the cryin', it might be ten minutes long
                 E                         A
Hey, but that's okay, this is a honky tonk song

Now this is for Alice way out in Dallas who got dumped at the Burger King
And this is for Bobby who just quit his job, he's movin' out to Nashville to sing
For that long haul trucker who won't be home for supper 'Cause he's stranded on the side 
of the road
              D                   E
For everybody lonesome, everybody blue, yeah


Steel break

Fiddle break

It's for that good ol' boy preachin', dealin' with the Deacons
and the little ladies with the beehive hair-do's
And what about the waitress who don't think she can take it
standin' on her feet one more night
For that Nascar racer that never sees the checkered flag wavin' crazy for him
For everyone who feels like they were born to lose, yeah


It's when the pain and the pinin', cussin' and the cryin', this thing is goin' on 
forever, Lord
It feels like it's ten years long
Hey, but that's okay, this is a honky tonk song
It's a honky tonk song
Another honky tonk song
