Honky Tonk Night Time Man - Lyrics

Ever been to Bakersfield

I'm a honky tonk night time man

I can't stand no light
I'm a honky tonk night time man
I can't stand no light
I get my rest in the day time
I do my runnin' around at night
I had the blues this morning

Had the blues all day today
I had the blues this morning
Had the blues all day today
Well, I wish a tornado
Come and blow my blues away, away
That's what I said, take 'em away
Sounds like Roy

Yeah
And then my heart starts beatin'

When that sun starts sinkin' low
Well, my heart starts beatin'
When that sun starts sinkin' low
When the shadows fall
I know it's time for me to go
Billy Powell on the piano

Oh Barry, play me some Dobro

I'm a honky tonk night time man
I can't stand no light
I'm a honky tonk night time man
I can't stand no light
I get my rest in the day time
I do my runnin' around, round at night
I get my rest in the day time
Get's that old love sweet stuff at night
