Honky Tonkin' Fool
Sung By : Doug Supernaw


(E)Red hung out at the point of tears
He was a (A)honky tonkin' fool
Ever (E)since they brought that jukebox here
Back in (B7)1952
He was the (E)first to drop a nickel in 
When he (A)danced with his first wife
By (E)'61 his wife was gone
But that (B7)jukbox had survived

It was (E)three plays for a quarter
I turned (A)on enough to go
Red (E)showed me that ol' Wurlitzer
And said, (B7)"son, I want you to know
If you (A)ever come up to be short
Just (E)kick it on the side
Would you (E)do this honky tonkin' fool
One (B7)favor when I die

(E)Roll away my tombstone, put this (A)jukebox in its (E)place
Make damned sure Your Cheatin' Heart is the (B7)only song it plays
I don't (A)need no stone with (B7)fancy words
This (E)jukebox (would be / sure is) (Cm4#)cool
As a (E)perfect final tribute to a (B7)honky tonkin' fool

When we (E)heard the news, me and Mr. Hughes
Put that (A)jukebox in my truck
And (E)hauled it on down to the place
That ol' (B7)Red had hung it up
And, I (A)ran a short extension cord
From the (E)old caretaker's shed
I (E)kicked the side, played Your Cheatin' Heart
Looked (B7)down at Red, and said

Red I(E)rolled away your tombstone, put this (A)jukebox in its (E)place
And I made damned sure Your Cheatin' Heart is the (B7)only song it plays
You were (A)right about that (B7)tombstone, Red
This (E)jukebox (would be / sure is) (Cm4#)cool
As a (E)perfect final tribute to a (B7)honky tonkin' fool
It's the (E)perfect final tribute to a (B7)honky tonkin' fool
