Honky Tonk Down Stairs lyrics

Verse:

Well, it wont be long now
Til that ol sun goes down
And darkness helps me hide my shameful tears.
My wife works all night long
For a man whos halfway gone
Shes the barmaid in the honky-tonk downstairs.

Chorus:

Its a shame she wears the name
Of a man whos locked and chained
To a bottle thats destroyin all hopes and cares.
To the men with hungry eyes
She works and hides her pride
Shes the barmaid in the honky-tonk downstairs.

Repeat chorus
