HONKY-TONK ROAD

I said goodbye to 9 to 5 forever

And set out on the road back in '94

With nothin' but my name and my guitar

I left to find a life worth lookin' for

 

Now I'm on that honky-tonk highway

Of busted neon lights and one-night shows

It's no kind of life to lead

But it's the only life for me

Ridin' down that Honky-Tonk Road

 

They said I was crazy for leavin'

And told me I'd be back before too long

But in this life dreams don't die easy

And I'll be on this road until I'm gone

 

Ridin on that honky-tonk highway

Watchin as the headlights come and go

It's no kind of life to lead

But it's the only life for me

Ridin' down that Honky-Tonk Road

Ridin' down that Honky-Tonk Road

Ridin' down that Honky-Tonk Road
