HONKY TONK MISTAKE (BACK UP, BABE)

Sittin' on a country post, gravied like a country roast,
Baby's momma left me sweatin' on the hot back roads.
Fell back, back slap, had a little heart attack,
Girl took my money away.

Back up babe, can't be saved, 80 proof, hell's way,
Moon whoops my ass, I'm a livin' low class.
Leather skin, weathered heart, can't fix what I didn't start,
All done doin' time.

chorus
I'm a honky tonk mistake, (back up babe),
Honky tonk mistake. whoo!
I'm a honky tonk mistake, (Back up babe),
Honky tonk mistake. whoo!

Woke up on a broken spoke, out of stash, no toke,
Hurtin' from the curtain lettin' in that sun,
Never seen this shade of blue, how'd I get this new tattoo?
At least I spelled the name right.

I like my moonshine valentine, helps me to erase my mind.
At least she's not too young.
Chasin' down a midnight train, cheap lovin' in my veins,
Is how I got this way.

repeat chorus

Won't sing, can't dance, don't expect no romance,
You gets what you see,
Momma said duck tight, Papa said I'm not right,
A no-count fool is what I be.

Livin' on nine lives, drowning in my alibis,
I'm a twister gone wild,
Can't afford to buy a break, can't afford a minute steak,
Good lord, what happened to me?

repeat chorus and outro
