The Honky Tonk Kid  Aaron Watson

H[D]e’s wrinkled and gray
But he’s st[G]ill got the f[D]ire
And he sing[A]s on the stage
Like a b[G]ird on a [D]wire
Oh he’ll pack ‘em in
Just like [G]he always d[D]id
Oh every[A]body loves the h[G]onky tonk [D]kid
He got his first guitar
When he was 15
Thirstin’ for knowledge
All hungry and green
Strummin’ that six string
Just like Lefty did
Everybody loves the honky tonk kid
Well the h[G]onky tonk kid loves the h[D]onky tonk crowd
[A]He picks them up when this w[G]orld gets them [D]down
But all the sm[G]oke and the neon keep his pa[D]in hid [A]
Oh nobody knows the h[G]onky tonk kid [D]
Ten million fans
And a handful of friends
But he’ll go home alone
When each night ends
He’ll think about her
And then twist off a lid
Nobody loves the honky tonk kid
Chorus 2x
It won’t be long
The Lord will take him away
He’ll have sung his last song
They’ll place a wreath on his grave
Oh and he’ll draw a crowd
Just like he always did
Oh one last goodbye for the honky tonk kid
