Words & music by Dennis O'Rourke
As performed by Randy Travis
1.) D[E]irt road in the twi-lght, [E7]woods so cool and dark.
U[A]p a-head pale ne-on, [C#7]somewhere a dog barks,
[F#7]Honky-tonk moon, keeps s[B7]hining on my ba-by and [E]me[/] [A] [/] [E] [/] [B7] [/]
2.) B[E]reaking up the pool balls, [E7]chalk-ing up the cues
J[A]uke box pumping soft-ly, l[C#7]azy sum-mer blues
[F#7]Honky-tonk moon, keeps s[B7]hining on my ba-by and [E]me[/] [/] [A] [E] [/] [/] [/]
Through the b[A7]lue smok-y haze, all through the haze
T[E]rouble seems to melt a - wa[E7]y.............
My [F#]heart's on a roll, I'm [F#7]easy in my soul
There's no [B]hur-ry, no [F#m7]wor-ry, things are [G#m]go-in' my [B7]way
3) My arms a-round my ba-by, shuf-flin' on the floor
Cig-a-rettes and saw-dust, squeak-y old screen door.
Honk- Tonk Moon, keeps shin-in on my ba-by and me.
4.)Out-side the dark is fal-ling, stars are twinkling bright
That old Hoot Owl is calling, every-things all right
H[F#7]onk- Tonk Moon, keeps s[B7]hin-in on my ba-by and [E]me[/].[/] [A] [D7] [/] [C#7] [/]
F#7 B7 E / / / E . . .
Honk- Tonk Moon, keeps shin-in on my ba-by and me.
Don't know what key Randy does it in, but I like it in E.
It has some neat turn-arounds!
