One Foot in the Honky Tonk
The hillbilly song on the jukebox
A painted woman on your knee
Will help you to forget about tomorrow
But they can’t change the way things have to be

All around the neon altar
You who think you know the way
Soon your steps are sure to falter
‘Til one foot’s in the honky tonk, the other’s in the grave

Me, I hate the life I’m livin’
It just gets worse every day
The best that I’m gonna be tomorrow
Is just before that feelin’ fades away



Goodbye my friends, I’ve got to leave you
Before I go I want to say
I’m sure we’ll meet again tomorrow
With no home left to come to but this place
