CHORUS:
If the whole world was a honky-t[D]onk,
And it revolved around an o[E]ld jukebox,
We'd tell our troubles to the [G]Bar,
Over cryin' steel guita[A]rs,
And soon, they'd all be g[Bm]one.
Yeah, if you asked me what I t[G]hought,
I'd say: "We'd be better [A]off,
"If the whole world was a [D]honky-tonk."
VERSE:
You could smoke that c[D]igarette,
An' be politically inc[Bm]orrect.
Show off that red 'round your [G]neck:
Not hear a single soul obj[A]ect.
Wouldn't need no lawyers to dec[D]ide,
Who is wrong and who is r[Bm]ight.
No need for big expensive t[G]rials:
Brother, we'd just step out[A]side.
CHORUS:
If the whole world was a honky-tonk,
And it revolved around an old jukebox,
We'd tell our troubles to the Bar,
Over cryin' steel guitars,
And soon, they'd all be gone.
Yeah, if you asked me what I thought,
I'd say: "We'd be better off,
"If the whole world was a honky-tonk."
VERSE:
Wouldn't have to pay no tax:
Just set a tip jar in the back.
If we ran low, we'd pass the hat:
I bet we'd all be in the black,
CHORUS:
If the whole world was a h[D]onky-tonk.
(Instrumental for rest of chorus)
  E-G-A-Bm-G-A-D                          

BRIDGE:
And if you're lookin' l[Bm]ove:
Someone to heal that broken h[G]eart.
Hey, buddy, you'd be in h[E]alf.
You wouldn't have to go that f[A]ar.
CHORUS:
If the whole world was a honky-tonk,
And it revolved around an old jukebox,
We'd tell our troubles to the Bar,
Over cryin' steel guitars,
And soon, they'd all be gone.
If you asked me what I thought,
I'd say: "We'd be better off,
"If the whole world was a honky-tonk."
Life would be a three-chord s[G]ong,
And the king would be George J[A]ones,
(BREAK) D
If the whole world was a honky-tonk.
Fade out on chorus...
