Honky Tonk Man:Johnny Horton.
#96 Rock & #11 Country in 1962.

CHORUS:
E
I`m a honky tonk man, and I can`t seem to stop.
                           A
I love to give the girls a whirl to the music 
              E
of an old jukebox.
E                       B
But when my money`s all gone, I`m on the telephone,
        A                        B          E
callin` hey, hey, Mama, can your Daddy come home?

#1.
E                   B
I`m living fast and dangerously but I`ve got plenty 
      E
of company.
E                              B
When the moon comes up and the sun goes down,
A                             E
that`s when I want to see the lights of town.

CHORUS:
E
I`m a honky tonk man, and I can`t seem to stop.
                           A
I love to give the girls a whirl to the music 
              E
of an old jukebox.
E                       B
But when my money`s all gone, I`m on the telephone,
        A                        B          E
callin` hey, hey, Mama, can your Daddy come home?


(INTERLUDE:) E A E B A B E

CHORUS:
E
I`m a honky tonk man, and I can`t seem to stop.
                           A
I love to give the girls a whirl to the music 
              E

        A                        B          E
callin` hey, hey, Mama, can your Daddy come home?

#2.
E                                  B
It takes a pretty little gal and a jug of wine..
A                              E
that`s what it takes to make a honky tonk mine.
E                            B
With the jukebox a moanin` a honky tonk sound,
A                          E
that`s when I wanna lay my money down.

CHORUS:
E
I`m a honky tonk man, and I can`t seem to stop.
                           A
I love to give the girls a whirl to the music 
              E
of an old jukebox.
E                       B
But when my money`s all gone, I`m on the telephone,
        A                        B          E
callin` hey, hey, Mama, can your Daddy come home?

After over 8,000 views with nary a bitch, some want-wit decides
to give this 3 stars. I guess you didn't notice it was JOHNNY HORTON's
version..or did you not bother to look??? KK.

P.S. I added the INTERLUDE for those (and you know who you are) who can't read well. KK.
