If the Whole World Was a Honky Tonk George Strait
Capo 1st Fret
If the whole was a honky[D]-tonk,
And it revolved around an o[E]ld jukebo[E7]x,
We'd tell our troubles to the b[G]ar over cryin' steal gui[A]tars
And soon they'd all be g[Bm]one.
If you a[A]sk me what I t[G]hought
I'd say we'd be better o[A]ff
If the whole was a h[D]onky-tonk.
You could smoke that cigare[D]tte,
Be politically incor[F#7]rect,
Show off that red round your [G]neck
Not hear a single soul obj[A]ect.
Wouldn't need no lawyers to decide,
Who is wrong and who is right,
No need for big expensive trials,
Brother we'd just step outside.
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.
D F#7, G, A, D
If the whole was a honky-tonk.
And if you're looking for lo[Bm]ve,
Someone to heal that broken he[G]art
Hey buddy you'd be in l[E]uck[E7]
You wouldn't have to go that f[A]ar
Life would be a three-chord so[G]ng
And the king would be George[A] Jones
If the whole was a ho[D]nky-tonk.
