Dwight Yoakam – Close Up The Honky Tonks Lyrics (originally by Buck Owens)

She’s in some honky tonk tonight, I know
She’s dancing where the music’s loud and lights are low
In a crowded bar she likes to hang around
And as long as there’s a honky tonk she’ll never settle down

So close up the honky tonks, lock all the doors
Don’t let the one I love go there anymore
Close up the honky tonks, throw away the key
And maybe the one I love will come back to me

If I had the power I’d turn back time
And live again the hours when she was all mine
It hurts to see her running with that crowd in town
But as long as there’s a honky tonk she’ll never settle down

So close up the honky tonks, lock all the doors
Don’t let the one I love go there anymore
Close up the honky tonks, throw away the key
And maybe the one I love will come back to me
Yeah, maybe the one I love will come back to me

Close up the honky tonks, lock all the doors
Don’t let the one I love go there anymore
Close up the honky tonks, throw away the key
And maybe the one I love will come back to me

Close up the honky tonks, lock all the doors
Don’t let the one I love go there anymore

[Dwight Yoakam – Close Up The Honky Tonks Lyrics]
