Johnny Horton - Honky Tonk Hardwood Floor Lyrics




The fiddles're squeekin' the guitars're speakin'
The piano plays a jelly-roll
The man on the drum is out from dumb
And the bassman he plays from his soul
The tables're quakin' and your nerves're shakin'
But you keep on beggin' for more
You keep a havin' your fun, you lucky son of a gun
On a honky tonk hardwood floor

On a honky tonk hardwood floor
On a honky tonk hardwood floor
You keep a havin' your fun, you lucky son of a gun
On a honky tonk hardwood floor

There's a waitress handy and she don't sell candy
And she don't sell soda pop
And there's a fat bartender who's there to serve you
If you really wanna blow your top
If you got no money then there's a little honey
She's a thing that you adore
You keep a havin' your fun, you lucky son of a gun
On a honky tonk hardwood floor

On a honky tonk hardwood floor
On a honky tonk hardwood floor
You keep a havin' your fun, you lucky son of a gun
On a honky tonk hardwood floor

Your payday's Saturday you're broke on Sunday
On Monday you're feelin' saur
You got big black eyes that you pick up
From little from a little guy the night before
So you swear off to drinkin' but when you get to thinkin'
'Bout the good times you had, oh Lord
So keep a havin' your fun you lucky son of a gun
On a honky tonk hardwood floor

On a honky tonk hardwood floor
On a honky tonk hardwood floor
You keep a havin' your fun, you lucky son of a gun
On a honky tonk hardwood floor

    This selection could be found on the Johnny Horton album, “Honky Tonk Man” released in 1962, which features some kick ass rockabilly (and just enough country & western to maintain his image as a country artist).

  21. M Hayes

    So is this a Johnny Horton original, or is it a cover of a Clyde Stacy song? I know Clyde sang it.

    Mario Roberts

    Neither Johnny Horton nor Clyde Stacy did the original version. Jess Willard recorded it in May 1951 and it was released later that month on Capitol records.

    M Hayes

    Ok cool. Clyde was my dad's 1st cousin. I didn't know him well, but had met him a few times. Good man. Sadly, I didn't familiarize myself with his music until after he passed a few weeks ago.

    Kim Foster
