Verse   Well I been married now for a year or more
 G7C
        And my old guitar hangs by the door
 FC
        That woman of mine says hock that Luke
 G7FC
        Cause your mamma dear needs a brand new suit

 C
Refrain         Well I hocked my watxh and I sold a dog
 G7
                And I pawned a gasoline stove

I hocked my ring & everything
 C
                Just to keep that woman in clothes

I even pawned a cat & I hocked my boots
 G7
                And I sold the family car
 FC
                But that woman o' mine will be a hundred & nine
 G7FC
                Before I hock my old guitar.

Cho...

Verse.. She went one day last week I guess
And she won't come back until I say yes
In answer to her "Hock that Luke!"
My old guitar for a swimming suit

Refrain... Well that'll be the day when I pawn my heart
Like a pawned a gasoline stove
I hocked my ring and everything
Just to keep that woman in clothes
I even pawned a cat & I hocked my boots
And I sold the family car
But that woman o' mine will be a hundred & nine
Before I hock my old guitar.

Cho...

Verse.. Well if she don't come back no I won't be sore
'Cause I don't give a hoot about her no more
A man get's tired of "Hock that Luke!"
That woman of mine's too bad to suit

Refrain.. Well I hocked my watch & I sold a dog
And I pawned a gasoline stove
I hocked my ring & everything
Just to keep that woman in clothes
I even pawned a cat & I hocked my boots
And I sold the family car
But that woman o' mine will be in a box of pine
Before I hock my old guitar.

Cho...

This song's not over yet, there's still another dang twang

And another dang twang
And another dang twang
And another dang twang
And another dang twang
And another dang twang
