Lil' Texas 'Tonk

By: Wayne Brown

Even at a distance, the neon shines

Like diamonds in a goat’s ass

Yet those bright lights ain’t nothin’

Compared to the magnetism

Which you exude

My lil’ Texas Tonk

 

You are like a bad old habit

Just a bitch to break

You're chocked full of sin and women

Lord don’t I know it

Lord don’t I love it?

My lil' Texas Tonk

 

There’s that old mechanical bull

Get me drunk I’ll try to ride it too

The girls like them eight second boys

At least some time

They’ll be here tonight

My lil’ Texas Tonk

 

Spendin’ my hard-earned pay

Buyin’ long-necks for me and the girls

We dance around; tease and play

Now and again I get a lil’ bit lucky too

These cowgirls ain’t bad

My lil’ Texas Tonk

 

Lots of heartbreak been in your door

Lots more crawled right back out

This ain’t no place to fix the heart

It just goes numb a while

Distractions are your business

My lil’ Texas Tonk

 

Sawdust on the dance floor

Lights burnin’ low and dim

Them cowgirls leanin’ at bar

Beer’s cold and colder still

My lil’ Texas Tonk

 

Stay for the late night fun

Last call’s when we cut ‘em out

We’ll corral us a doggie

Take her back to the bunk

Play around for a while

My lil’ Texas Tonk

 

God would be doin’ a favor

If he’d burn your ass down

My retirement is spent in beer

My joy knows your bar in my back

You’re a lovely little one, you are

My lil’ Texas Honky-Tonk Bar

      Glad I could get those boots excited, Laura. Guess you can just call me the "Honky-Tonk Poet" LOL. WB

      Tim...happy to hear you enjoyed it. A Texas friend of mine gave me that little nugget about the goat's ass. Thanks for the read! WB
